STEM ALL STARS
Star Teen Empowering Girls Via STEM (Eduzine Global Feature)
Since her childhood Sajni Vederey has been noticing gender stereo types such as girls are bad at math, and girls do not fit for engineering. Not only at school, but she started to see how even toy companies and children's TV shows were having a boy and a girl versions. As she got more involved into STEM, she noticed that kids, even at early ages, are developing a sense of gender identity and bias. Then, STEM All Stars was born with the intention of sparking interest in STEM for girls and giving them an opportunity to explore these fields in greater depths.
Sajni's target audience is girls who do not have enough self confidence or knowledge about STEM.

Sajni has introduced 22 STEM All Stars clubs internationally, and she hopes to create a change in the lives of girls!
