Over the years, STEM Advocate and Educator, Dr. Darryl Baynes has created an entertaining formula for successfully communicating to students the relevance and importance of pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. MAEA, or the Minority Aviation Education Association, is the largest science and math outreach company in the nation owned and operated by African Americans.

The New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science (NMMNHS) and the New Mexico Museum of Natural History Foundation are offering free online access to two physical science programs presented by Dr. Baynes.


The first program provides detailed demonstrations of the concepts of "hot and cold" with an opportunity for viewers to provide educated guesses at the outcomes of several experiments. This program and video are accessible on the Education Resources webpage on the NMMNHS website or by clicking here.

Dr. Baynes also provides a much more extensive program that features empowering messages for minority and all students as well as inventions by women, Hispanic, Black, and other diverse individuals. It encourages viewers to challenge their own stereotypes and provides a positive vision where all young people are able to thrive on their creativity and talent.
