Yeah, That's STEM!

Yeah, That's STEM!

Our Yeah, That's STEM! campaign's goal is to expand awareness of opportunities for under-represented communities to have agency in sustainable careers and important work  that dominate the future.  The campaign shows the connection between science and technology through industries such as multimedia, personal care/cosmetics and food. This is intended to highlight how vast and varied the STEM field is by presenting lesser known (but equally important) careers that exist as a means to success for Black, Latinx, and women Philadelphians.
