This guide includes a selection of resources for children, young adults, teachers and the general public on Latinx and Chicanx in science, mathematics, engineering, medicine, and related fields. It also includes resources for teachers on multicultural science education and science for English Language Learners (ELLs). All sources have been published within the last 20 years. Most of the sources are in English, with a specific section with books in Spanish and Portuguese and a section on science books for children that are in Spanish as well.
This guide is intended to serve a wide research audience, as well as to provide useful, quality information and research assistance to the interested public. This guide is not an exhaustive list of resources, but rather a starting point for researching Latinx and Chicanx in STEM.
