There are many instances of different services on the fediverse, [Qoto](https://qoto.org
) is an instance for discussing STEM related topics. It does have an associated discourse discussion platform which I have been working to add content to, mostly in the Physics, Chemistry and Astronomy categories.
Please feel free to sign up to both, there are a few questions to answer if you join Qoto as the admins really like it to keep to the STEM focus.
If you just want to join the [Discourse](https://discourse.qoto.org/
) this is fine, there are a few other services on offer, which you can ask about once you have signed up., Engagement is encouraged. I am subscribed to [Science daily](@ScienceDaily@newsbots.eu) so do share content on the discourse with the view to encouraging discussion.
I am interested in also reaching out to minority groups who are under represented in STEM and I have set up a thread on discourse to this effect and shared links to biographies / profiles of people from minority backgrounds who have made significant contributions to STEM, hopefully this will inspire others.
See you there @Paul Sutton
