The STEM Belle is a non-profit, which is focused on recalibrating the female representation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Our impact model is to attract girls to STEM subjects, retain them in Science classes and then advance them through, to STEM careers. We are headquartered in Nigeria but have had our foot prints in Ghana and Pakistan.
Women and girls can be everything: Elegant in stilettoes and confident in steel toes
Impact so far
SUMMER BOOT CAMP
"This initiative is an eye opener and also a silent challenge to others student to take their studies seriously in order to benefit from the opportunities in STEM. I am overjoyed about this intervention in my school and very happy that the students are rising up to strive to be the best in science subjects"
"The STEM Belle strategies have made my students take studies and examinations more seriously. They are being pushed to work harder, and the beautiful thing is even though we have some constant high achievers, we also have different sets of girls winning the prizes each term. It would have been a source of concern if it was only the same set of girls winning. They are learning that life is a competition and you must be ready to compete healthily."
"My school is a beneficiary of The STEM Belle who has been consistent at our school to give talks on contemporary issue especially why more girls need to be in science and technology. The school girls enjoy and look forward to the educative interactive sessions and also the academic awards. This gesture has mentored the girls in the school and impacted the dignity and worth of the female gender in the society"
"I always feel happy when other women from The STEM Belle come to our school to tell us about the good jobs that we can get if we do Science. I am more serious with my maths and science subjects and I am very happy that I got an award last term. My parents were also very happy when they came to the school to receive the school fees with me. I will continue to listen and study very hard so that I can become an Engineer in the future"
