o spark girls’ and young women’s interest in STEM2D subjects, we need to reach them wherever they are—in urban centers, small towns, villages and rural communities. STEM2D must be accessible and available in a variety of places and settings. All girls—no matter their religion, race, gender identity, or ability—are welcome to join Johnson & Johnson’s WiSTEM2D programming and events.
We are committed to sparking enchantment with technology in young women and girls through creative problem-solving and play all around the globe. As part of Johnson & Johnson’s Health for Humanity 2025 Goals, we aspire to engage 2 million girls in STEM2D activities by 2025.
There are many ways to engage girls, whether you want to help plan an event, share your career journey, present material in a school setting or organize a learning experience at your company.
Whether you're a student exploring STEM2D or a parent, teacher or supporter, this page has tips, tools and resources to help you.
Observing, studying and experimenting to better understand the natural world and how it works.
Putting science and other knowledge to practical use to solve problems, invent useful tools, envision new possibilities and establish meaningful connections between people and the world that surrounds them.
Applying science and math principles to design and develop products, structures, machines, tools or systems that help improve everyday life.
Using a quantitative framework (numbers, quantities, shapes, abstract principles and problem-solving) to describe the world.
Creating something from raw materials by hand or by machinery.
Developing human-centered, experiential solutions in collaboration with patients, consumers and experts from STEM and other disciplines to address unmet needs in a feasible, viable and desirable way.
To advance student outreach, Johnson & Johnson has partnered with leading nonprofit organizations including Girls Inc., Girl Scouts of the USA, FHI 360, First Robotics, JA Worldwide, Smithsonian Science Education Center and National Society of Black Engineers to develop the youth STEM²D resources and website. Our STEM2D.org site contains STEM²D activities that can be completed by students of all ages at home, in the classroom, or in other small and large groups.
Through these partnerships, Johnson & Johnson has reached over ten million girls since first launching our program in 2015.
