oSTEM @ the University of Colorado, Boulder Presents:

 Pathways in STEM


Pathways in STEM was a collaborative, remote high school outreach program begun in summer 2020! This summer, Pathways will focus on expanding our reach through featuring interviews, panels, talks, and news articles from LGBTQ+ identifying and allied STEM professionals, many of whom are from Colorado! Last year, we hosted self-paced workshops, which will be continued this year as well. All programs in Pathways in STEM are 100% free. 

We welcome high school students from across the country and beyond.
