I would say marxists are probably pretty pro science and if anything are overly optimistic about a technocratic version of socialism working better than older attempts.
Certain Marxist influenced sociologists in other fields attempt to take the Marxist class model then replace it with whatever their agenda is and not test it at all. So I’d say some of them are less pro science.
As for STEM most leftist approaches would need a lot of science. I suspect friction with stem is that the stem fields produce lots of people who are happy with capitalism and don’t see themselves as downtrodden laborers in solidarity with their fellow revolutionaries.
isn't it late stage capitalism mainly refuting the science of climate change at the moment so they can drain the very last bit before the planet dies. as for marxism, the world has changed somewhat in the last 200 years so any progressive marxist/socialist is to me more open to uni at the moment... something the corporations of the right seem to refute as an option but only because it will cost them. we are not the luddites you suggest and i would like to here options from the right as to where we go when automation means none of us have a job to go to
