Actual STEM Professionals is a place for those who work in any field or sub-field related to STEM to share their experiences.

If you are a STEM professional and would like to feature on our site, sharing your story and workplace with students all over the world, you can download a copy of our Actual STEM People – Information and Questionnaire. Simply fill it in, add some cool pics, and email it to emily @ actualteaching.com (minus the spaces of course!).

As a former STEM Professional myself, who has now moved into the world of secondary science education, I noticed a distinct lack of one-stop-shops for first-hand information by people who work in STEM fields.

Students all around the world are interested in what it means to work in a STEM career, how you get there, and what you actually do.

Teachers all around the world try to get this information for their students, with varying levels of success.

This site was created to be a treasure-trove of stories by real-life STEM professionals – those who are out there right now doing their thing!
