Share the story of your personal STEM superhero and help showcase a new wave of role models. Win prizes and meet real-life STEM heroes!
In the STEM Superhero Challenge, you have the opportunity to recognize someone who has personally inspired your interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). By telling your hero’s story and passing down any lessons learned along the way, you can share that same inspiration with the rest of the world and help inspire the next generation of diverse, talented individuals to pursue a rewarding STEM career. You could also win a cash prize and the chance to meet some of the real-life STEM heroes at Regeneron who help solve the human body’s complex mysteries.
Regeneron and Base 11, the Challenge Sponsors, are committed to helping empower our future STEM workforce by creating a platform for a new wave of inspirational and relatable STEM role models, showcasing them as the unseen heroes of our world.
Your participation in this challenge is essential to this mission! Tell us about your hero, why they inspired your interest in STEM, and what lessons they shared that might assist others on their own journeys.
History has taught us that people feel empowered to succeed when they see someone they identify with excelling in their own way while still having a valuable impact. For this reason, we are especially interested in hearing about the everyday, unsung STEM heroes who personally inspired you. Don’t underestimate the value that a relatable, down-to-earth role model can have on the world! Oftentimes their impact extends beyond their professional work alone.
Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this community that supports and encourages diversity in STEM!
