During the entire month of February, talkSTEM will be kicking off its special #herSTEMlens campaign, part of its STEMlens photo and video exhibition, and we’d love for you to get involved!
STEMlens encourages students and teachers to share unique photos that show how much more STEM is in their daily lives than they realize, in a fun and engaging way. Our goal is to impact at least 10,000 children, and we need your help.
Share Your #herSTEMlens
Please share your #herSTEMlens as soon as possible so we can make sure to include in the virtual exhibition that we are putting together, freely accessible to all. We want to feature women who are leaders in a wide variety of STEM professions, women in STEM careers, and young girls.
Let’s share what we see, marvel at our questions about the mundane and the magical, and above all, let’s remember that every space is a STEM space and every girl is a STEM girl.
To participate in the #herSTEMlens virtual exhibition, we invite you to do one of the following:
- Encourage girls to post their own #herSTEMlens by
- Capturing a personalized photo of how you see the world around you that inspires you to think about STEM
- Adding a question or idea that other girls and women can share and discussPosting your #herSTEMlens on Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, or Facebook. Don’t forget to tag us so we can see your contribution, repost, and also include in the curated virtual exhibition.
- Or, simply share the included image to help spread the word!
- Make sure to link your post to this blog post or add it to your Linktree for Instagram.
