STEAM शिक्षा by adding Arts to STEM disciplines

Women in STEAM

location_on Nepal
We aim to multiply the number of girls taking STEM careers by educating and aware adolescent girls in Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics disciplines through our skill-based training, mentorships, and learning materials. We are working to break the early stereotypes in communities by inspiring and encouraging the young mindsets to learn-lead in STEAM/Computing fields in Nepal.
Binita Shrestha, Managing Director
Building the foundation of engineering attitudes and critical thinking is crucial to encourage creativity. And this can be achieved through STEM tools and toys if we start it early.

about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

STEAM Education is the most important source of empowerment to bring girls out of their socio-economic seatbacks and to recognize their full potential. The STEM approach to basic education through learning materials will become digitally accessible to the learner girls encouraging them to think independently, promotes teamwork/collaboration, and makes them confident.

How does your innovation work in practice?

The main idea here to build the foundation of engineering attitudes, learn, fail, accept, try again to achieve the goals. The STEAM toys and toolkits will develop an attitude of experimenting, accepting failures, embrace it and try again and again to achieve the set goals of anything that they have imagined in their brain. Most importantly, they will develop the confidence to handle risks by themselves and also develop the progressive mindset that they can excel in computing careers.

How has it been spreading?

In order to decrease the social issues/taboos especially for girls/women that exist in the communities or country in general, STEAM education can play a vital role and this approach helps to find resilient solutions. As we are working with adolescent girls from different provinces in Nepal collaborating with CSO organizations and the government following our (60-40)% model of girls and boys.
We use arts to bring young girls out of their comfort zones and facilitate STEM disciplines that make learning more fun and engaging.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

Our workshops and training are based on the STEAM disciplines learning methodologies. One can engage in it through our web application.
