Given these five points, we can improve the STEM positioning of young people:

  1. Early participation: Promote STEAM education from childhood with a focus on gender and discipline.
  2. Promoting STEM identity: Enhance the positive image of STEM professionals for better identification with stems. Facilitate exchange between young people and similar STEM professionals in gender, life interests, ethnicity, etc. Make visible the contribution of people who move away from stereotypes to STEM, but avoid highlighting only those cases where STEM has been a success.
