Stereotypes, gender bias, and the climate of science and engineering departments in colleges and universities continue to block women’s participation and progress in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Get an update on girls’ and women’s achievement and participation in STEM, and learn what parents and teachers can do to encourage girls to pursue careers in these exciting and rewarding fields and help increase the diversity of representation in all STEM areas.

*STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

Center for Promoting STEM

With a significant grant from the National Science Foundation, Oakton's Center for Promoting STEM (CP-STEM) offers diverse activities including a summer "bridge" program; peer tutor training; student-industry-teacher simulations; study sessions; seminars; and field trips. The New York Times recently cited Oakton among the top-ten community colleges in the nation and called attention to CP-STEM. In addition, the Peer Tutor Training and Student-Industry-Teacher Simulations programs captured the Innovation Award from the Illinois Council of Community College Administrators in 2003 and 2005 respectively.
