In 102 countries, only 14% of girls (while 39% boys) pursue STEM fields. STEMettes is an award-winning social enterprise working across the UK & Ireland and beyond to change these numbers. They hope to inspire and support young women into STEM by showcasing amazing female scientists via a series of panel events, hackathons, exhibitions, and mentoring programs.
