Your questions answered, here
The answer is ...you! This club has been designed specifically for you to run with your friends (of all genders), with the help and support of Stemettes HQ.
Through your Meal Plans you will have the chance to improve perception, awareness, network, confidence and knowledge of STEM activities, careers and general skills.
Once you’ve filled out your registration survey you will be ‘magically’ sorted into your house!
Sharman House - named after Helen Sharman
Shirley House - named after Stephanie “Steve” Shirley
Aderin-Pocock House - named after Margaret Ebunoluwa "Maggie" Aderin-Pocock
Mirzakhani House - named after Maryam Mirzakhani
The Houses give you and your club an extended network to work with and which can help each other. Through collaboration with individual tasks will ultimately enable you to gain more points. The House with the most points from its’ clubs at the end of the year will win the (virtual) House cup.
The Club is a team and so should make decisions by consensus, taking votes where necessary. There are two roles required per Club. Remember everyone in the Club is equally valuable to the Club’s success and something that is “wrong” at first glance can lead to new ways of looking at things.
- Chief Stemillions Officer (CSO)- you will need one club member to read the Meal Plan before the session and lead the club in following the Meal Plan.
- Chief Data Officer - you will need one club member to take the register each week (of the OtotheB usernames of those in attendance) and submit any items to Stemettes HQ as per the Meal Plan ‘Dessert’ section.
A club consists of at least 2 people at the start, which should at least double each term. We recommend up to a maximum of 16 people per club. Your school may request an additional club if more than 16 wish to participate.
In addition to the annual House Cup there will be awards for the Club with the most points at the end of each term and again at the end of the academic year.
This club will receive a special set of certificates and a unique prize from one of our industry partners. Chief Stemillions Officers also get shoutouts in our main newsletter and an invite to our exclusive end of term event.
Your club will need the following:
- Access to a space for meeting, which has
- Wi-Fi/Internet Access

The below infographic outlines this for prospective club leaders/Chief Stemillions Officers.
Sign up is via stemettes.org/stemillions or our OtotheB app and will need to be done by the proposed club leader/Chief Stemillions Officer.
You’ll answer questions about the prerequisites and a few sorting hat questions. After that they’ll be invited to join our MightyNetworks community and start running the club using resources online.
