How 3 women are changing the face of STEM

11/07/2017

Nov. 8 is national STEM day, something Zahra Hazari knows a lot about. She is trying to recruit at least 10,000 more women to pursue physics degrees in the United States by 2020. It’s an endeavor that would have seemed impossible 30 years ago, a time when no one seemed to care that women were not flocking to careers in STEM — no one except an elite few like Yesim Darici. When she joined FIU in the mid-1980s, Darici became the first female physics professor in the state of Florida.

About Us

The STEM Transformation Institute is a multidisciplinary collaboration across the Colleges of Arts, Sciences & Education, and Engineering & Computing, for the research and development of effective Discipline Based Education Research (DBER) practices that lead to substantial increases in the number of well-prepared STEM professionals, including teachers, graduating from FIU.

The STEM Institute capitalizes on the unique skills our diverse student population brings to their learning and ultimately the workforce. The Institute is FIU’s response to national calls for 100,000 new STEM teachers and an additional 1,000,000 STEM professionals over the next 10 years; hence, our vision that the Institute serve as a living laboratory that disseminates practices, policies, and STEM professionals across the nation.

Undertaking this challenge requires partnering with local K-12 schools, colleges, businesses and industry, foundations, and national education leaders in order to create an educational landscape that supports all students coming through multiple pathways, and leading to a productive workforce.
