Encourage and Inspire Girls in STEM

EWN Girls Get STEM Project is a six months project for underprivileged school girls. Its goal is to provide STEM training to promote an interest of these girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skills. We started STEM program on December 4, 2015 in 3 different public schools with 270 girls in Pokhara. Later we continued this program in another school-Mahendra Secondary School with 104 girls in 2018 to motivate and build confidence in foundational STEM such as computer literacy and scientific problem solving to the disadvantaged girls. . To start our next STEM program, EWN organized 2 days STEM ToT to 3 school teachers of Shree Krishna School on Aug 2 and 3, 2019.

Girls mainly our country Nepali girls are marginalized in science, engineering, math and computer to the degree of their male counterparts in certain scientific interests and participation by the time they complete school level. Many girls may have an interest in STEM and enjoy it. But they do not always have the same opportunities as boys to complete and benefit from an education of their choice. Many girls are held back by biases, social norms and expectations influencing the quality of the education they receive and the subjects they study.

The beneficiaries are young school girls ages 12-15 studying in grade 6,7,8 and 9 who have no access to computers at home and attend the schools that are not well facilitated. A trainer lead sessions on every Friday afternoon after school hours. Trainers are school subject teachers who are providing training to strengthen and enhance awareness of the importance of STEM education for girls.
