Hello! Welcome to STEMsi. We are so excited you’re here! We’re excited to be here, ourselves. STEMsi is an acronym for Scientists, Technologists, Engineers, and Mathematicians sharing ideas, and that’s exactly what we are here to do.
STEMsi is a non-profit organization that was born out of our observation that, despite many programs and efforts by universities, there is still an underrepresentation of students from underserved communities at the college level. There are many reasons for this, but we thought, “perhaps one of the problems is that some of those students don’t have access to the same level of educational material that other students have.”
This led to the next thought of, “what if we could produce high quality videos and other material with scientists in our networks – the leaders in their fields – and make them totally open access so all educators and students can use them, free of charge?”
We aim to create videos that introduce topics in STEM fields, demonstrate laboratory techniques, and share innovative research and developments, all produced and created by experts in each individual field. We also aim to record audio for these videos in many different languages, to reach as many students as possible. Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders, and we are here to invest in them. We think that knowledge can open doors, so we want to share as much knowledge with as many students as we can.
Basically, we have big dreams for STEMsi and even bigger dreams for students all over the world.
Looking forward to this adventure!
