otothebOur sisters in STEM over at Stemettes have released a fab new app, OtotheB, designed to create a global online platform for girls interested in STEM and entrepreneurship. It is free to download from the Google Play and iTunes stores. It gives girls access to:

  • “Motivation Mondays”: Access to exclusive interviews with inspiring women in STEM, and the chance to win an opportunity to shadow them in the workplace
  • “Win Wednesdays”: Access to competitions to win exclusive merchandise, STEM gadgets and networking opportunities
  • “Thought Time Thursdays”: Google Hangouts with industry role models, which will allow girls to ask agony aunt-style questions and watch the conversations live via the app
  • “Featured Fridays”: Find out about recommended STEM-related products, books and services

Anne-Marie Imafidon, CEO of Stemettes, tells us: “OtotheB is an exciting new venture for Stemettes. It has been developed with everything we have learned from the 8000 girls we’ve worked with over the last 3 years in mind. It offers us the opportunity to take the Stemettes offering to the whole of the UK and beyond, something we’ve been wanting to do since Stemettes for a long time. I’m excited to bring the girls who use OtotheB on their own personal Stemette journeys as they build their own STEM careers.”

Dr Sue Black, campaigner and academic, describes OtotheB as a “…fantastic new resource for young women interested in technology”, adding “The app is an interesting and engaging platform which will engage, motivate and nurture young women, helping them to see that STEM is an exciting area with incredible opportunities for them and for everyone.”

AND Melissa Di Donato (Salesforce Area Vice President, recently named Business Role Model of the Year at the 2016 Women in IT Awards) says “OtotheB is a pioneering initiative from Stemettes. It’s the first app of its kind to specifically target the next generation of women in STEM, making its launch an important milestone in inspiring future female STEM leaders.”

But don’t believe them! Check out OtotheB yourself 🙂
