The Violet STEAM Project Women of STEM
Who we are and what we do
We are the Violet STEAM Project. My name is Alejandra and I am the mother of 7 year old girl Violet who loves all things STEM. We are using artful designs to celebrate Women of STEM. STEM plus Art creates beautiful STEAM. At age 5 she wondered why there were not more Women Scientists in books and on posters. So we decided to make posters and t-shirts of all the subjects covered under the STEM umbrella. This has become her project and she is so proud that she is sharing Women of STEM with other young people.
Our goal is to have posters of hundreds of Women of STEM in thousands of classrooms. Together we can raise our girls to love Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Everyday, every classroom, there will be images of Women in STEM. Science is important and so are our girls futures.
Currently there is a disturbing trend among young girls. At a young age girls often show interest in S.T.E.M. or STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Research has shown that girls tend to lose interest in STEM the older they get. Microsoft in a recent study found that girls would be more likely to pursue STEM subjects if they had role models to look up to. We have made designs that will appeal to younger girls and at the same time provide Women of STEM role models. It is our mission to have images of Women of STEM role models in every school in the world.
