AWSEM Clubs Information

AWSEM=Advocates for Women in Science, Engineering, and Math

AWSEM Clubs are designed to nurture girls’ interest in STEM by providing a program of hands-on activities paired with positive adult women STEM role models. The goal of the clubs is to introduce girls to STEM career fields in which women are traditionally underrepresented. We also seek to change the stereotypical perception that scientists and engineers are male and that STEM is “difficult”.*

Undergraduate women studying science and engineering at OSU will lead and be mentors for the AWSEM clubs with hands-on activities!!!
