In the Davis High Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (WiSTEM) Club, students empower and promote the roles of women in STEM. One of the club’s main goals is to overcome the stereotypes of women in STEM.
The DHS WiSTEM club meets every Tuesday via Zoom. “During our meetings, we invite various speakers from UCD and other universities who present their experiences working in the STEM field to expose our members to possible career paths and areas of interest,” senior Sophie Zhang said.
Volunteers from the DHS WiSTEM club offer their help to elementary school students as well as middle school students. WiSTEM volunteers tutor younger students by helping with their homework or helping math clubs prepare for mathematical olympiads. The club is also planning to host their own math competition for younger students later this year.
Anyone interested in joining the DHS WiSTEM club can visit the club’s Instagram page @dhswistem and fill out a registration form, found on the Linktree in their bio.
“We also want to emphasize that we are an all-inclusive club, so regardless of gender, students can sign up and attend our meetings and volunteer opportunities,” Zhang said.
