Serious diversity issues in STEM education result in inequality of earning, quality of life, and empowerment.
Of the 616 Nobel Laureates in Physics, Science, and Medicine and Physiology from 1901-2019, only 19 were women. (“Nobel Prize,” 2020)
Nationally, women make up 57.3% of bachelor’s degree recipients but only 38.6% of STEM bachelor’s degree recipients. Moreover, underrepresented minority women represent 16.6% of undergraduates but only 9.16% of STEM undergraduates, or approximately one-half of the expected amount based on undergraduate enrollment. (NSF NCSES, 2019)
49.2% of women who originally intend to major in Science and Engineering as a first-year switch to a non-STEM major, compared to 32.5% of men. (National Science Foundation National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics [NSF NCSES], 2017, 2019)
Our mission is to inspire and foster a love for STEM education at an early age, for all - especially girls, underprivileged, and underrepresented communities.
WLS is a program that teaches students using unique and effective techniques based on personal experiences from middle and high schoolers.
We believe kids are more engaged in learning and find it more interesting when they learn from other students who understand and connect with them better.
This is why all We Love STEM programs and curriculums are fully designed and run by a group of extremely passionate high school students from all over the globe!
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
