STEM, otherwise known as science technology engineering and math, is a field of study that has exploded in both importance and popularity. The group of academic and industrial disciplines is the backbone of modern innovation, with countless new advancements being attributed to the research from leading STEM experts. STEM keynote speakers devote their career to inspiring students, business owners and the general public, to pursue STEM in higher education.
The following are STEM speakers at the forefront of their sectors, who are spearheading advancements in science, technology, engineering and math. A role model to young people, their professional development within the STEM industry is a key topic in their public presentations.
From biology and ecology to chemistry and physics, the landscape of science is vast and ever-evolving. With the earliest recorded evidence of science being traced back to 3500 to 3000 BCE, during the Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia era, scientific discoveries continue to influence all areas of modern life. The study of science branches into three main areas – natural science, social science and formal science – which explore both social constructs and biology.

Engineering puts the study of science, technology and math into practice. Defining the process of designing everything from buildings to machines, the industry spans across a number of sectors. Since humans have designed inventions, engineering has been a key field of study, dating back to the 1390s. Engineering is a broad term which covers chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical manufacturing.
One of the most celebrated women in STEM, Kate Bellingham is a former audio engineer. With a passion for inspiring an interest in the sector, she was the President of the Young Engineers, a programme within schools funded by the BBC, that promoted the study of science and engineering. Additionally, this engineering speaker was also a National STEM Careers Coordinator for the Department of Children, Schools and Families in 2010, a role in which she encouraged young people to pursue STEM, despite their age, race or gender. As a speaker, Kate is an advocate for girls in engineering.
Similarly to the study of science, mathematics has been a core subject for centuries. Used to define the study of algebra, number theory, geometry and mathematical analysis, mathematics is concerned with the repetition of patterns. Math experts can devise predictions from calculations, which is used to ensure the structural integrity of buildings and investigate phenomenons in nature.
