Why doesn't the public consider Biologists to be part of STEM? It's just as important of a science.

Biologists are just as important in the STEM field as any other scientist. However, I think the public doesn't consider them to be part of STEM because they don't always see the tangible results of their work. For example, when most people think of STEM, they think of things like building bridges or developing new technologies. While biologists do important work, it's not always as visible to the public.

The perception of what we do is so different from what we actually do. However, I've noticed people becoming more aware over the years.

IDK I've never really observed this treatment. Are you basing this assumption equally on personal experience or are there data you have that shows this?
