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.
With the above in mind, IBM has initiated the STEM for Girls project in September 2018 with these components - Computational thinking through coding, Life and career skills, Digital Literacy, Gender education and building personal agency.
The STEM for Girls’ project was scaled up in 2019, with the following core principles:
Leverage coding as a tool to build critical 21st century skills and agency in girls across the country
Work with state governments and education departments to not just support but advocate for the program in schools.
Build capacity of the ecosystem - Include teachers and principals as key players in the program - who eventually own and run the program in their respective schools
American India Foundation (AIF) has partnered with IBM to implement Stem for Girls India program in the three selected states which are Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan and reaching to 45,000 students studying in Class VIII to XI in three years.
Visit allocated schools on a weekly basis and to ensure effective implementation of the program
