STS aims to inspire young women into STEM careers by connecting them with a woman in industry who actively mentors them over the course of four months. The programme is supported by Deutsche Bank.  I joined Stemettes because I was generally interested in technology – however, my school’s main focus was engineering and medicine so they did not cater for this area of STEM.

I’m writing as a previous mentee (now known as Sherpee) to give you an insight into what a Sherpa means to girls like me who want to know more about STEM.
