Why Study STEM?

Peer Leader Cleo Kirkton “I have always loved participating in [STEM] classes and activities. For me, science and math are like mysteries that you get to solve as you learn how to do it. I love the concreteness of the answers.”
Peer Leader Jill Snyder “I was drawn to a STEM major because I had a science teacher in eighth grade that was really encouraging when it came to do work in that class. He was the first one that made me realize that I was good at science. I also want to be able to help people and STEM seemed like a good way to be able to do that.”
Peer Leader Cordelia Vincent “The thing about STEM that intrigued me was that it is about learning to think a different way. Scientists are very well-organized and while first getting into STEM might seem challenging, the longer you study, the more logical and organized everything is to you.”
