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

What are AWSEM Clubs?

AWSEM Clubs are designed to nurture girls’ interest in STEM by providing a program of hands-on activities paired with female undergraduate students studying STEM. 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 reinforce that STEM is accessible and open to everyone!*

Undergraduate women studying science and engineering at OSU will lead and mentor the AWSEM club sessions! 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.


Registration for our Spring AWSEM Club will open soon!
