STEM education has gained a lot of attention in recent years due to its importance in shaping the future workforce. However, there is still a significant gender gap in STEM fields, with women and non-binary people underrepresented in many areas of STEM.
To address this issue, organisations like Stemettes, an award-winning social enterprise working to inspire and support girls, young women and non-binary people in STEM and STEAM careers, have created programmes like Stemillions.
Stemillions is an extra-curricular activity designed to engage young people in STEAM activities and provide them with opportunities to develop their skills and interests. The programme allows young people to run their very own Stemettes club, where they can work through a series of activities at their own pace.
The activities are designed to inspire young people and provide them with valuable insights into various STEAM fields. By working through the activities as a team, club members will work towards certificates and prizes, making the learning process even more fun and rewarding.
To run a Stemillions club, all you need is:
✅ Access to Wifi
✅ A 30-Minute regular slot
✅ Space to meet
This nationwide programme will cover a wide range of STEAM topics, including coding, robotics, and environmental science. The activities are designed to be engaging and fun, while also challenging young people to think critically and develop problem-solving skills. Through hands-on projects and interactive activities, club members can learn new skills and explore their interests in STEAM fields. 💡
By engaging girls and non-binary people in these fields, we can help to bridge the gender gap and create a more diverse and inclusive workforce in the future.
