Summary

On INVENTIVA we broadcast live educational videos on YouTube about knowledge in the STEAM areas in a creative and fun way. Its objective is to arrive in territories in Latin America where academics and schools in areas like science and technology are limited. It is a project created by Geek Girls LatAm, ValPat, and Academia de Inventores. Help us to connect more geek girls to learn about STEAM.

Challenge

The Covid-19 pandemic caused schools and universities closed their doors impacting education in an unexpected way. According to UNESCO reports, in Latin America only 55.9% total of all the students are registered, it is stated that 1 of 4 girls do not attend school and from the 103 million young people in the world who lack basic literacy skills, more than 60% are women. Children in Latin America do not have access to high-quality education and online media could help with it.

Solution

We generate free interactive content and workshops, providing girls and boys live experience in robotic, programming, electronics, mechanics, mathematics and some other content in the STEAM fields. Through INVENTIVA we facilitate a free learning platform that promotes the inclusion of children in the study of STEAM areas in which usually girls and women do not participate. We want to generate opportunities for our girls in a world that is on a constant technological advance. Support us!

Long-Term Impact

Reduce gender gaps in the work environment in the STEAM areas. There is a gap in the world where women earn 23% less than men, investing in education generates higher rates of employability. With INVENTIVA the children, especially girls will get skills that will help them to be professionals prepared to face the technological challenges creating social and economic impact. Support us to continue our work for gender equality for our girls and reduce inequalities.
