The completely student-run nonprofit organization on a mission to shatter barriers in the STEM fields through providing a transformative peer-to-peer education for all students.
Join us to create impactful programs for students across the United States.
STEMchats is a student-led nonprofit on a mission to shatter barriers in science, technology, engineering, & mathematics (STEM) for underrepresented students through our peer-to-peer teaching philosophy, aiming to ultimately inspire these same students to create even further impact in the future.
We believe in educational equity in the STEM fields: all students deserve a quality STEM education, regardless of their racial, gender, or socioeconomic background. Our programs, ranging from workshop series to research initiatives, are all completely built by students, for students.
Our Celebrate programs are designed to inspire students by highlighting the impactful things that students with strong STEM backgrounds are capable of.
Our Stimulate programs teach students about fascinating scientific concepts through hands-on workshops coupled with the peer-to-peer technique.
Our Innovate programs connect students’ natural curiosity to opportunities that help them apply it through producing their own original STEM-related work.
As a completely student-led nonprprofit organization, we understand how other students want to learn. This allow us to make use of the peer-to-peer technique which leads to the creation of engaging STEM outreach programs & initiatives that are students for other students.
Moreover, our team consists mostly of first-generation, low-income, minority, LGBTQ+, and/or female students. Being educated at mostly underfunded schools and identifying as underrepresented in the fields of STEM, we understand the struggles of trying to find STEM immersion and education opportunities at a young age. Most importantly, the backgrounds of our team members helps us relate to the students we aim to impact.
