#TheFutureisMine

Developed in collaboration  with Quest Alliance, IBM STEM for Girls is a  digital fluency and life skills  curriculum designed to  help girls in government  secondary schools break  gender stereotypes and  explore the possibilities of  STEM-enabled careers.

There is a need to create  an enabling ecosystem  where girls are encouraged  and supported to explore  careers in Science,  Technology, Engineering  and Mathematics (STEM).

Only 44% of undergraduate students across India  are women and even fewer pursue careers in  STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics).

Youthnet signs MoU with IBM, the Department of School Education, Govt. of Nagaland and Quest Alliance to implement STEM for Girls among adolescent girls and boys studying in selected Government Secondary Schools in Nagaland in the current academic year i.e. 2021-2022.

Why STEM for Girls at School level?
