“I have been humbled by this tremendous cadre of women who are already in STEM and said yes—to champion STEM education for girls with the #STEMPrincess project nationally,” commented Erin Albert, CEO at Pharm, LLC, STEM academician and author of The Amazing Adventures of the Princesses from Planet STEM children’s book series.

“These women all want the STEM Princess movement out into the wider world in different, meaningful ways to in turn spark a new generation of women in STEM.  We know from the research that women in STEM are paid closer to parity with men, and have higher wage earnings. I’m excited to have this group of women already living the STEM dream help spread the broader message: that girls CAN be STEM superstars!”

Social Media Roundup: The #STEMPrincess Kickstarter Project

Monday, October 14th, 2013

AmazingAdventuresPrincessesPlanetSTEMWell, my fab 13, we’re almost half way through this Kickstarter shin dig – WOOT!  Forgive me for a moment with this post, but I must do a little herding of all the info on social media around this #STEMPrincess project, to have it nicely and neatly fit into one blog post – ready?  Here. We. Go!

The Kickstarter Site – where the magic happens, and where you can become an amazing Superstar STEM backer!

The Campaign within and behind the campaign – here’s where I post all the updates, and a few backer-only updates, like our campaign button program – for backers only.

PR on the Kickstarter program – at the launch.

All about the Princess Manifesto – both at the blog and prettied up at Slideshare – both as a slide set and as a one pager.

Inside Indiana Business Studio (i) video – on girls, Indiana and STEM.

Two infographics:
1. Indiana, Girls and STEM and
2. Girls and STEM – by the numbers.

Video 1 – Best part about the entire campaign

Inside Indiana Business’s Big Wigs and New Gigs Post on WHY we desperately need Girls to Engage in STEM in Indiana.

Pete the Planner’s radio show - original airdate – October 13, 2013 – 2nd hour.

The Local Lady of Richmond’s blog post on our project.

A piece I wrote for Drug Topics on why I’m doing this project, and why it is important.

The primary Twitter page @ErinLAlbert, and our extra special hashtag at Twitter, Vine, Instagram, etc – #STEMPrincess.

This may be a little bit of overkill, and of course, the haters are already coming out.  Haters gonna hate, but I don’t really give a damn.  Why?  Because girls aren’t winning in STEM in Indiana, and as a STEM professional and native Hoosier girl myself, I can’t let this problem go until we get more girls in Indiana fired up about STEM, and create a better future not only for local and national economies, but for my entire gender.

There you have it! More goodies will be coming, but I wanted to get them in one nice neat little package for you and me to keep track of.  If you’re one of our current almost 60 backers on this project, btw, THANK YOU for helping Hoosier girls.  If you’re not–we’re running out of time!
