Community Engagement Platform


A community foundation that works to improve the economic outlook for youth wanted a web platform to act as a dynamic resource for women and girls interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and careers.


STEMhub is the first online resource to serve as a clearinghouse for women and girls in the North Bay to learn about regional STEM-related opportunities such as classes, meetups, events, seminars, careers and conferences. It is designed to connect “learners” – those interested in pursuing STEM education or career pathways – with “mentors” who are already working in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.

Technology stack: 

Laravel/PHP, MySQL, Vue, JavaScript
