Selfestem

Selfestem We are a nonprofit organization that promotes STEM opportunities for girls and women from underrepresented communities. Self-eSTEM’s vision is to create a sustainable, diverse, and inclusive workforce pipeline, to close the critical shortage gap of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics professionals by building the self-esteem of young girls and women (age cohorts 7-17 and 18-22) from underrepresented communities.
(10)

Through the exposure of STEM opportunities, we will empower them to become viable sources of innovation, and equip them to become role models within their communities.

Mission: Self-eSTEM builds the self-esteem of girls and young women from untapped communities, while providing interactive, culturally responsive STEM literacy, leadership, and technical training preparing them to thrive in ever-changing labor markets. Beyond the confines of traditional STEM roles and spaces that exist today, our organization focuses on building the skills, confidence, and resilience needed for our participants to adapt to the STEM workforce of the future. We are building and diversifying the next generation of STEM innovators and entrepreneurs to disrupt the world!

#FlashBackFriday to Days 3 - 5 of our 2020 virtual camp when our #innovators learned the fundamentals of AR/VR and leveraged STEM concepts from city planning and smart transportation from the first two days to design their own virtual reality solutions to address the lack of access during COVID-19 in the areas of transportation, social activities, or school. We enjoyed seeing participants' creativity come to life!

As our participants are back in the swing of the school year, we want to #flashback to the great time we had during past STEM Exploration Camps - starting with our 2020 camp! This year’s STEM Exploration camp brought a lot of new and exciting things with it - including a fully virtual learning experience with over 175 youth and volunteers. Day 1 included lessons on environmental design and city planning.
