Hear Me, from Carnegie Mellon University’s CREATE Lab, is a fresh tool for initiating dialogue and for utilizing the expertise of those most impacted—students—to influence educational practices. Hear Me’s current project in the Greater Pittsburgh Region captures the perspectives of K-12 students on gender bias and STEM and shares their voices with educators, policy makers, and STEM practitioners—bringing students to the table as vital players in moving the needle toward equity in STEM.
