STEMside (previously in2biochem) was brought to life by two Biochemistry graduates whom one day realised the following - growing up, students tend to see the different disciplines of science as completely separate subjects. In addition, there were very limited opportunities for disadvantaged and under-represented students to learn more about how these subjects are linked to each other as well as appreciate how they can bring a massive positive impact on our world today.
We are here to change that.
Mission & Vision
We are a social enterprise on a mission to promote the exciting and interdisciplinary nature of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics to prospective and current university students globally through accessible scientific resources.
We envision a future where STEM education is accessible to all regardless of background and opportunities.
Primer is our main newsletter, blog, and source of scientific knowledge that is written in a clear, concise, and easy-to-read format. We'll do the reading from Nature, The Lancet, Science, and any other peer-reviewed scientific journals so that you can understand the concepts through our simplified explanations.
Take a look at some articles written by STEM students/graduates.
Choosing the right degree is a crucial task, but it doesn't have to be stressful.
Our Degree Insights page takes a deep dive into the ins and outs of different STEM degrees, including the core modules covered, transferrable skills developed, career options, and learning experiences from current students and alumni.
At the moment, our Degree Insights page is primarily Biology-focused, and we hope to expand into the realms of other Natural Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. If you are interested in science communication and sharing more about your STEM degree, check out our "Join the Team" page!
