Superstars of STEM - text logo black

Superstars of STEM aims to smash society’s gender assumptions about scientists and increase the public visibility of women in STEM. The women in the program are all committed to building a public profile and becoming role models for the next generation of STEM stars.

The Superstars of STEM aim to make appearances in the media as well as speaking at schools and public events. You can find out more the Superstars of STEM below. Or request one to speak at your next event.

The Superstars of STEM program began 2017.  There are currently 150 Superstars of STEM. Here you can find Superstars trained in previous years. We also invite you to meet the amazing mentors who give their time to support the program.
