We are honoured to have selected our first charity to donate some of our profits to with each sale, and we have selected the Stemettes.
Stemettes (@stemettes) is an award winning social enterprise working across the UK, Ireland and beyond to inspire and support young women into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths careers. They inspire the next generation of females into Science,Technology,Engineering and Maths (STEM) fields by showing them the amazing women already in STEM via a series of panel events, hackathons, exhibitions and mentoring schemes.
If you haven’t heard of their work yet in STEM education in the UK and beyond…you will do I can assure you.
Our founder, Jennifer Kempson (@mamafurfur), has had the privilege also of attending and volunteering at their past Edinburgh event, which saw hundreds of young school age girls learn how to code and build their own app-controlled car with electronics. Nothing was more exciting than seeing youngsters realise that they could create and build real life solutions based on what they are hearing in the news (driver-less cars, IoT technology) and know that they could do it themselves and understand how it all works.
Join us in this journey to donate as much as we can to this great cause!
