Fashion + STEM + Education
STEM in Style is all about engaging more young people in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) by exploring creative applications within the fashion and design industries.
With an ever growing need for a future workforce skilled up in STEM at further/higher education, STEM in style hopes to provide an enriched and engaging learning experience that inspires and equips young people of diverse backgrounds with confidence in their technical abilities as well as an understanding of the importance and applications of creative problem solving across all industries be it the Arts or STEM.
Founded by mathematician and designer, Takita Bartlett-Lashley (takitatakita.com), the organisation reflects Takita’s endeavours within the unassuming combination of these areas and passion for creative ways of communicating various STEM concepts, especially maths.
Through developing her own maths inspired jewellery brand and experience teaching maths and coding/tech skills to over 6000 young people, she realised the potential to use fashion as a platform to incorporate technical and creative learning as well as set briefs that nurture innovation and problem solving.
- To create engaging learning environments for young people that promote and celebrate the creative applications of Science, Tech, Engineering and Maths (STEM)
- To provide young people with the technical and practical skills that raise their confidence and aspirations to pursue STEM at further/higher education or within their career
- To shift perspectives and stereotypes of STEM and Fashion which limit the capacity by which these subjects can be jointly explored to solve problems within education and in industry

We are always keen to expand the movement by involving individuals, collectives or companies with an interest to innovate, create or inspire! Anything from taking time to speak at a student event or sponsoring projects and competitions, help us to provide even more opportunities for young people to creatively engage with STEM.
