Diversity in STEM

Our overall project goal is to promote diversity in STEM fields by engaging the UI student and faculty body as well as the surrounding community through social media, public art, and outreach events. We aim to make STEM more welcoming and accepting of people from all backgrounds by raising awareness of underrepresentation. We hope to combat this by connecting students with student organizations already established on the UI campus and exposing young minds to role models they can identify with. Finally, through a public art display, we are creating a lasting visual representation of our mission.
