About STem Sista

The STEM Sista program was created to empower young women aged 14-17 who enjoy STEM subjects but may not be certain about pursuing those careers. We will show you the possibilities in STEM careers so you can get a better understanding and see who you can become.

The program is delivered over three days at our industry partners board rooms and at Universities.

We achieve the outcomes by teaching real life skills and introducing you to a variety of women in STEM, ranging from students at University, graduates, to successful women in their career.

The best thing is – they are just like you. This is how we empower girls to change the world by studying STEM.

"The STEM Sista program was amazing, from an education, future, and social perspective.

The modules were so helpful with my study techniques and how I thought about learning. The exercises surrounding budgeting and meal planning taught us real-world skills, and talks from university students studying our interested fields helped me consider potential pathways and motivated me to start visiting university open days.

Experiencing it with a small group of girls with such a wide range of interests was so much fun and I would totally do it again!
