We are the Stemettes, and we’re here to help.


It’s been a tough time for you and your students. As we all prepare for post-pandemic life and the future, now is the time to provide extra support. We have some Free opportunities for young women and young non-binary people who study and/or live in Ireland.

For Everyone

We have an Instagram full of inspirational role models, advice and IG Live videos to rewatch from live sessions we’ve done with people across the STEM field. There’s also the Stemettes Zine.

The Stemettes Zine
A Note on Safeguarding
We take the safety of our community and young people very seriously. This programme will ensure safety and safeguarding throughout – via the use of training, DBS checks, and a locked secure online platform. Our safeguarding policy is available online and is central to the planning of our Liverpool Futuremakers work. We want our young people to be safe at all times, so this programme will be heavily supervised by our team – attendees will always be in a virtual room with our moderators as well as any industry volunteers.Any attendees aged 16 or under will need the permission of a responsible Parent or Guardian to participate in the programme fully, beyond watching sessions.We also take inclusion very seriously, so will be providing the necessary materials for any young people who do not have regular access to a device connected to the internet. We want all sorts of young people to be able to build careers in STEM, no matter the resources they have at home.
Parent, Guardian, Teacher or Volunteer?

The Stemettes Zine is a curated space tailored specifically to Stemettes but we have plenty of content and updates for you folks too. Sign up to receive the Stemettes newsletter and we’ll keep you updated with the latest from Stemettes HQ including events, activities, resources and fundraising actvities.
