About the Project

STEM for Girls Project focuses on increasing girls’ representation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education which is currently at an alarmingly low percentage across India. Education has a vital role to play in developing the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that enable students to contribute to and benefit from an inclusive and sustainable future. Learning to form clear and purposeful goals, work with others with different perspectives, find untapped opportunities and identify multiple solutions to big problems will be essential in the coming years. With STEM learning, effective mentorship and career opportunities, girls can thrive and become a stronger participant in the digital economy.

Leverage coding as a tool to build critical 21st century skills and agency in girls across the country
