Our Story In A Nutshell

Career In STEM was founded in 2017 by veteran, award-winning educator Ashley Pereira out of her frustrations as an inner city middle and high school science teacher in Hartford, CT. Her students had no idea what they wanted to be. And think about it – how do you know what you want to do until you have DONE it? The truth is, you won’t, and she couldn’t find a fun and easy way to help her students learn about STEM careers – so she made one, and Career In STEM was born!

God has given each and every one of us tremendous talents and gifts, and it is Career In STEM’s mission to help students across the USA…

discover STEM, dream big, and build a future they love.
