What is F.E.M.M.E.S?
Our student organization aims to increase the number of women* who pursue careers in science, technology, math, and engineering (STEM) fields by fostering girls' interests at a young age.
To accomplish this, we:
Work with women role models (UM faculty and students) to demonstrate how women can and do excel in STEM
Remove barriers to participating by making our events completely free of cost, providing free activity supplies, meals, and transportation to / from schools in underserved communities
Curate our programs to benefit students of different ages, including STEM experiential learning activities for elementary schoolers, mentorship programs for middle schoolers, and college readiness / career workshops for high schoolers
*We support inclusive definitions of "women" and welcome all people who identify as women, including transgender and non-binary women. Although our events are targeted toward girls, students of any gender identity are welcome to participate.
