Inspiration/ About the project

We noticed the race and gender gaps present within STEM and we wanted to create an application that would reduce them. Stemterest does that with its quiz that helps underrepresented groups find direction by matching them to the career that best suits them.

How I built it

We built it using a coding application called repl.

Challenges I ran into

The java script was a real challenge, we asked a mentor for advice to help us with that. Also, Alyssa accidentally deleted half of the code at one point, but we got it back.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We are proud of the javascript code for the quiz. It was new to us and took a bit of work but in the end it paid off!

What I learned

We learned how to problem solve as a team, and to trust other people.

What's next for STEMterest?

We hope to expand our website in the future to encompass even more STEM careers.
