Kasey Varner '14 wrote an article about STEMinists, a new student organization that supports and mentors women interested in STEM courses, for USA Today Colleges.
From USA Today Colleges:
At Gettysburg College, students not only joined the national trend of empowering female STEM majors but they claimed ownership of the program too.
Their efforts culminated into STEMinists, a club whose goals include challenging the nerdy male stereotype of people in STEM while also mentoring and supporting other females interested in STEM.
“Being the only girl in your classes can be overwhelming,” says founder Kirsten Crear. “We want to serve as mentors to younger girls in our majors to help them deal with the same issues we deal with too.”
