We are a group of graduate students, undergraduates, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty at the University of Washington, Seattle. Our goal is to:

encourage, inspire

& (st)empower

students in the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii to pursue STEM-related activities and education post-graduation. If you wish to participate in our activities on either end, please contact us!

STEM Pals is generously supported by UW MEM-C (NSF grant DMR-1719797), the Li Research Group, the Cao Research Group, the Department of Physics at the University of Washington, the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at the University of Washington, and Felicia Tsai’s Magnetic Monopole fundraiser.



Free demos, games, workshops, competitions, and lab tours with discussions on relevant concepts and small-group activities.


On several aspects of STEM: personal life, diversity, career, internships, research and college admissions, life, and other crucial topics followed by informal discussion sessions.


Mentorship between college-attending STEMentors and small groups of STEMentees (students), whether on research projects, general life, or academics.
