2018 AWSEM Club 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!! The focus of this program is on mentoring, rather than in-depth coverage of each topic, due to the varied backgrounds of participants and limited time for each session.
