We are excited to launch STEM talkABLE, a platform that individuals with disabilities and their families, peers, colleagues, teachers can share their stories and STEM learning journey.

In this first episode of STEM talkABLE podcast, Lily and Robyn share their stories and struggles in STEM learning. Robyn shares her fears of Lily failing, while Lily shares how she doesn't want to be treated differently because of her disability. 

Listen to Robyn and Lily's conversation:

Lily Wells (Left), 14, and her mother, Robyn DiPietro-Wells (Right), live in Illinois.  Lily enjoys reading, writing, and hanging out with friends.  She will be a high school freshman in the fall of 2020.  Robyn works as a program coordinator for a grant project in the Special Education department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  They both have a strong sense of advocacy and endeavor to support others in developing similar skills to serve not only oneself, but also those with whom they interact in personal and professional settings.
