Rewards Await: Engage with Projects, Share Our Vision, Help Shape Our Community's Direction

Unlock exceptional rewards with STEM-Away’s unique reward system, designed to celebrate your contributions, engagement, and outreach. Through participation and collaboration, you’ll earn STEM-Away® tacks, which are central to accessing these rewards.

:rocket: Three Ways to Earn Rewards:

  1. Group Reward Scheme: Join our flexible reward program, which scales based on university group size. The more who join, the bigger the rewards. Early university groups reaching milestones can earn additional tacks, leading to even greater rewards. Discover the full potential of group engagement here.

  2. Community Badges & Additional Savings: Our platform thrives on community engagement. Share our vision, earn community badges, and amass a generous number of tacks. Your proactive outreach is highly valued and rewarded, details below.

  3. Skill-Builder Project Participation & Rewards: Influence the evolution of our Skill-Builder Projects by voting, suggesting research papers to replicate, tools to explore, etc. Your outstanding contributions are rewarded with tacks, details below.

:key: Community Badges & Rewards

Earn exceptional rewards by engaging with our community and earning badges! Your efforts in sharing our vision through Nice Share, Good Share, and Great Share badges play a pivotal role in our outreach.

To participate, simply share posts from our t3: College & Early Career, t3: High School Edition, or any other category that resonates with you.

Remember to use the Share button located at the bottom of each post for your clicks to be tracked. Directly sharing a URL does not track your clicks. We deeply value and appreciate your support in promoting STEM-Away’s mission and programs!

:star: Skill-Builder Projects & Reward Opportunities

Explore Project Descriptions and cast your vote for the ones that grab your attention (opens May 1st 2024). Don’t stop at voting; enrich the discussion by suggesting research papers to replicate, tools to explore, or other innovative ideas (reply to individual project description posts). Your insights, suggestions, and votes are key to shaping our focus and allocating mentorship resources effectively.

Your active participation not only influences our project direction but also earns you community badges (see reward table above).

To cast your vote for a project, click on the thumbs up icon next to the project to reveal all emoji options:

Emoji Project Category Description
:+1: General Interest Project For projects you find intriguing or relevant to your interests.
:seedling: Foundational Project For foundational projects that are essential to a domain or industry.
:twisted_rightwards_arrows: Transferable Project For projects with concepts or techniques that are applicable across multiple domains.
:chart_with_upwards_trend: Emergent Project For cutting-edge projects that are at the forefront of innovation or emerging trends.
:classical_building: Legacy Project For timeless projects that have consistently been valuable or influential over the years.

Note: If a project seems to resonate with multiple categories, choose the one that feels like the strongest fit. If in doubt, the first category (Thumbs Up) is always a safe bet.
