The FabFems directory is a national database of women in STEM professions who are inspiring role models for young women and girls. The directory is accessible to young women, programs serving girls, and other organizations working to increase career awareness and interest in STEM. If a role model is willing to be contacted, students will see a green contact button below the person’s profile picture. Teachers can explore the directory with FabFem’s interactive “Our Reach” map. The Resources page provides information about facilitating the role-model experiences.
The science-oriented National Children’s Museum in Washington, DC, has started STEAM Daydream, a monthly podcast in which curious children interview STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) innovators from across the country for answers to their burning questions.
The National Inventors Hall of Fame has transformed its summer STEM camp, Camp Invention, into a new at-home program called Camp Invention Connect. The program balances active, independent hands-on exploration with opportunities for socialization from home.
