What is a STEMster?
A STEMster is a woman who is either working in or studying fields related to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
How can I help inspire girls in STEM?
Research suggests that girls who see themselves reflected in the faces of STEM professionals will have an easier time seeing themselves in those fields. G2O is committed to motivating the next generation of female STEM professionals, and with assistance from professionals, such as yourself, we can truly make a difference!

“Hi, my name is Dina and I am a civil engineer. I design bridges and highways all over the state. I like to work on a team, be creative, travel and see how what I’ve designed helps people. One thing I’d like to tell you is not to give up on your STEM dreams!”
