The STEMinist Project
While women continue to push forward in the STEM fields, and they are becoming a bigger part of the sciences, they still only constitute about 30% of all scientists in the fields. The STEMinist Project aims to help increase that percentage........
The STEMinist community comprises passionate individuals and groups from across the world who dedicate their time to promoting STEM education in schools. Through the STEMinist Project and website two key missions of the group are to:
- Increase the visibility of women in STEM vocations and STEM education
- Increase the confidence, competence and engagement of school students in STEM through engaging with role models, and to participate in Makerspace activities that incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in practice.
Premiers Science Awards
In 2019 the STEMinists became finalists in the Premiers
Science Awards in the Engagement Initiative category. The amazing Perth Observatory and Astrofest were the eventual winners which was appropriate in the 50th Year of the Moon Landing (1969). We were honoured and proud to have been nominated.
