We believe that women and girls can and do excel in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). We are building a community to tell the stories of women in STEM, showcase Women’s STEM organizations, and provide a platform where ladies can help ladies succeed in STEM careers.

Scientists study everything from the particles that make up matter to structures that construct the universe. Science offers diverse fields of study, such as biology, botany, ecology, physics, chemistry, oceanography, geology, meteorology, and zoology.
Technology solves problems or performs specific functions by making, modifying, and using tools, machines, techniques, systems and methods of organization. Current technology usually involves computers, but technology has existed since humans learned to control fire.
Engineers apply scientific knowledge, mathematics and creativity to develop solutions to technical problems. There are many different types of engineers, including: biological, materials, civil, environmental, structural, electrical, computer, mechanical, aerospace, industrial, and nuclear.
Mathematicians create new models to understand and solve real-world problems. Mathematicians solve practical problems in fields such as business, government, engineering and the sciences.

0

melaniestegmanInterview with Melanie Stegman, Biochemistry PhD & Founder of Molecular Jig Games. Melanie Stegman, Ph.D., Founder and Creative Director of Molecular Jig Games is convinced that cellular biology is the greatest fantasy world ever and that biochemistry is an inherently fun puzzle. Molecular Jig makes games to teach the average human how cells work. Stegman earned her Ph.D. in biochemistry at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, studying the regulation of gene expression that causes cancer and birth defects. As a post doctoral scientist at Weill Cornell, NYC, Stegman studied DNA repair in the human pathogen, Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Current projects are the development and evaluation of Immune Defense (www.MolecularJig.com/Immune-Defense-Game) and the development of the ScienceGameCenter.org where video games that teach science are reviewed by scientists, teachers, game developers and players.
