STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics—the fields that help us understand and improve life on Earth. Our nominees all approach these areas in different ways—some are doctors or researchers, others are business people or celebrities—but all of them actively use Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, YouTube and more to advocate for progress.
