STEM Gems Club 2017-11-03T11:58:12+00:00

Attention STEM Educators, Program Directors, Corporate Sponsors, and Community Leaders!

Start a STEM Gems Club today for girls in your school, organization, or community group.

You can’t be what you can’t see. When girls and young women come together regularly to engage in STEM conversations and exploration, their minds are opened to a world of opportunity.
  • They are empowered to take on new challenges, to learn it’s okay to make mistakes, to learn from failures, to believe in themselves, to speak up and speak out, to exhibit bravery instead of perfection, to take calculated risks, to reject boredom, to conquer their fears, to go beyond.
  • With your guidance, you can lead a group of girls and young women to explore STEM careers and help strengthen the STEM pipeline with capable, strong, and confident girls.
  • Recruit a group of 10-20 girls (boys welcome too!) and a passionate STEM Gems adult ambassador(s), and start a STEM Gems Club today! Whether your club members meet daily, weekly, every other week, or monthly, remember that consistency is important.
  • Order the STEM Gems Books, Empowerment T-shirts, and Tote Bags for your club members. To place a bulk order, please email the distributor at
  • Download the STEM Gem Club Discussion Guides  and utilize the related resources (see below) to activate the next generation of STEM leaders in your community or school!
  • Once you have your STEM Gems Club formed, email to receive your free STEM Gems Club Poster!

Women need role models and they need mentors. Women who are successful should coach other women. When you have people like that as a good example to other women, change happens.
