WHAT WAS ONCE “WOMEN’S WORK”IS NOW STIGMATIZED IN A DIFFERENT WAY


Believe it or not, in the early days of computers, it was considered a ‘woman’s job’ to code the computers. In the 1960’s in the USA, women who worked for NACA and later NASA were the ones programming behind the scenes. These days, programming and many other science and technology fields are male-dominated.* 

CHANGING THE WORLD ISN’T IN OUR AGENDA - BUT GETTING EXCITED ABOUT SCIENCE IS


That being said, we haven’t made it our goal at FemSTEM to change the minds of our local society, or anyone else’s. What we really want is to spread scientific knowledge to anyone willing to listen. Sometimes, it’s easy to become intimidated by STEM. We don’t have to be scared, though.  Being excited about science ourselves is a great way to get others to listen, too. Learning as a whole is stigmatized, and the more we do away with that, the more open everyone will be with learning new things from a diverse group of people.

WHO WE ARE


FemSTEM.com is a news site/blog aimed at women and girls of all ages who are interested in learning more  about STEM fields. Whether that’s  getting into STEM as a career yourself, or just general curiosity,  FemSTEM is here to  help guide you through it.

My name is Mariah Loeber, and when my freelance writing career hit a dead end, my father gave me the idea to start my own website about science and tech. I took right to the idea, and formed this website on January 16th, 2017.


WHAT WE DO


We create a space for anyone who loves science to enjoy. We write articles about science in the news, we answer common scientific questions, and we feature interview great scientists. We also try to help support other STEM (and STEAM) endeavors as much as we can, and work with scientists from across the globe in many different ways. We have been able to donate to fellow Patreon, Melissa C Marquez, to TheMarsGeneration, to the River City Science Academy, and more.

We also have been able to write about and promote great STEM projects such as Code Angel, the STEM Gems bookLabFundr, and more. 

As of right now, FemSTEM is a very small operation, and we rely on donations to help keep
us running. If you think you might be interested in donating to us monthly, you can visit our Patreon page at:  http://patreon.com/femSTEM for information on how you can help us keep this website alive.

If a monthly donation is not in your budget, but you’d still like to help support us, you can email us at: [email protected] to find out other ways to help support us.

If we want to be able to keep this site running, and to eventually be able to pay other writers, we need some monetary support. In the year that FemSTEM.com has been up and running we've gained hundreds of twitter followers, and numerous amounts of support from people in the science community. These last few months have been incredible, and we'd like to keep the streak going. Please consider supporting us so that we can continue to create content long-term.

This blog is updated Monday-Saturday with new content!
