talkSTEM's mission is to make STEM learning engaging for all learners, particularly female and underrepresented students. Our approach centers on place-based learning so that students see the relevance of STEM in their local communities and environments. We take educators and learners on "STEM walks" in different settings using videos and we also offer instructional guides to create your own STEM walks. talkSTEM is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and our resources are entirely free.

We foster student engagement by including all educators who shape learning in K-12 students - both in and out of school.
