The founders of Latinas in STEM are first generation American women who have been the first in their family to attend college. We are also MIT graduates with careers in industry and a long track record of community service.
We know first-hand that there are barriers to entry for women in STEM fields. Those barriers are compounded for Latinas due to a lack of role models, lagging outreach and overall limited parental awareness. We are a force from the community for the community to inspire and empower parents and K-12 students to pursue STEM fields, and to help college students and professionals thrive in their careers.
Founded at Purdue University, the Ameliators Program continues the trailblazing legacy of Amelia Earhart by connecting high school students to meaningful STEM-based community service projects. Available nationwide, girls in this free, online program will meet weekly to learn the Purdue EPICS (Engineering Projects in Community Service) design process from college mentors to solve real-life problems in their local communities over the course of an academic year.
