SEEDSTEM.org is a Non-Governmental Organization, formed by a team of people who are committed to making a difference in the lives of underprivileged children particularly girls by empowering them through STEM education. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. We trust that our thoughtfully designed STEM courses will aid in the all-round education of our children through inter-disciplinary and hands on learning. Our team is taking all possible effort to take STEM education to as many schools as possible. It is our earnest desire to escalate this effort to the level of colleges in the future.
We have planned our courses in such a way that there is focus on all aspects of STEM because the skills and knowledge inherent in each discipline are essential for a child to be successful in a science based career. Further, these fields of study are deeply intertwined in the real world.
Our courses ensure an interactive learning experience via workshops and activities. The comprehensive nature of the courses is targeted towards bringing to light the latent talents of children. We encourage children to think out of the box, be creative and independent. We believe in the Maxim that educating a woman results in educating a generation. In tune with this, we have ensured that our girls/women participate in motivational programmes and development of soft skills in addition to STEM courses. There will be classes on organic farming to bring home the message of sustainable living. Worldwide, STEM supports the study of engineering and technology even at elementary school level. We at SEEDSTEM.org strive to impact the lives of children from the middle school level. We provide quality education free of cost and all expenses are borne by us.
Started in late 2014 to offer first rate and comprehensive STEM education to children, we not only look to inculcate a love of science among children but we also focus on increasing the active participation of girls in STEM fields.
With the additional knowledge and hands on application that we encourage in a stress free environment, we hope that it would widen the aspirations of children and prompt them to enter STEM fields later on. It is our passionate desire to aid young people to have an approach to science that is driven by love of discovery, exploratory learning, and which requires children to actively engage with challenges in order to find solutions.
Our vision is to deliver basic STEM education to all children and to make STEM education an enjoyable process among them. We want our children to be creative and independent and prepare them to take on leadership roles in the future.
Our objective is to broaden the participation of every child in STEM by providing a STEM environment for them through project based learning. Organic farming is taught so that children learn sustainable living concepts early in life. Motivational courses and skill development courses ensure that children particularly girls pursue a career in STEM utilizing their full potential. For our children to be well balanced individuals, we integrate music therapy and art therapy in our courses. We strive to provide education for underprivileged children free of cost. We work towards empowering girls through various empowerment programmes designed by women for women.
