There’s a whole wide world of science, math, and technology out there, and women+ are-- and have always been-- an essential part of it.
If you’re here to learn about cool women+ scientists from across history, or here to dive deeper into a passion for physics or botany or math, or just here out of curiosity, you’re in the right place.
Look around and explore! You might learn something weird, come across a new subject that you didn’t learn about in school, or maybe even discover a new role model. Hopefully, you’ll find something that makes you go “WOW!”
We are A World of Women in STEM (or WOW STEM for short). We make videos, write posts, and come up with fun activities that are focused on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and the women+ who have been part of these fields throughout history. By celebrating them, we hope that you get inspired and excited about STEM, and maybe learn something new along the way.
Most of the content on our website is focused on particular inspiring figures throughout the history of women+ in STEM. Each video and post is a jumping off point into the incredible discoveries these women+ made in their lives. We hope that you learn not only about who these women+ were, but also learn a bit more about the fields that they revolutionized.
If you click around the site, you’ll hear about how scientists categorize stars, tiny fundamental particles that make up the universe, and how flowers decide the perfect moment to bloom. If we spark your curiosity, check out our experiments and worksheets page for activities you can do at home! Now get out there, and see if you can discover something for yourself.
Our team is made up of passionate undergraduate and graduate students from across the globe, who love science and spreading that love of science to the world. We’re still expanding and creating this site, so we’re on the lookout for more writers, video editors, and artists. If you’re interested in learning more about getting involved with WOW STEM, head over to the “Contact Us” form. We’d love to hear from you!
Why do we say "women+"?
We use "women+" to mean all people who are women and gender-minorities, including (but not limited to) those who are female, femme, trans, non-binary, gender-fluid, and agender.
