Science Bee's founder, Mobin Sikder, saw many of his classmates struggling with their lessons; sometimes they couldn’t understand the topic, and sometimes there was a lack of authentic information. He's seen huge discrimination among the students who live in urban areas and others who live in village areas. Students living in rural areas were deprived of proper guidelines and good instructors.
Science Bee has Bangladesh's largest Science-based website, with over 200,000 monthly active students, most of whom are from rural areas. Our on-campus project was 'Biggyan Kormoshala'. We have arranged seminars in more than 15 different schools, where we have been able to teach more than 5,000 students directly. We have also launched Bangladesh's first live talk show on science. The topmost scientists and popular technology-related people come as guests in this show to teach students about their respective fields. We have reached about 1 million people with this show. Till now, we have arranged 40+ competitions on various topics and also organized an event to help students who are depressed. About 10,000 students took part in it, and the event successfully reached 1,42,000 students. Besides, we have a monthly prize-giving option in our Q&A section, where every month, the top 3 contributors are presented with gifts to encourage them to ask and answer more questions.
Mobin Sikder, the founder of Science Bee, received 'The Diana Award' in 2023, established in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, United Kingdom. He also won the 'IVD Bangladesh Volunteer Awards 2021' from UNV and the Bangladesh Government for his work in the education sector. Moreover, Science Bee was honored with the 'BYLC Volunteer Awards 2021', 'Funding For Bangladesh 1.0', and the 'YSSE Global Education Award' for our contributions to e-learning. We have gained media coverage in top Bangladeshi newspapers and media outlets as well. Our upcoming gamified app will offer STEM courses, quizzes, ebooks, news, and so on, promoting accessible learning. We have planned to create more practical video content so that tough science-related topics can be easily understood.
