How can STEM CSR uplift female education in India?

In this modern world it is clear that women are performing excellently in almost every profession, be it- an astronaut, a scientist, professor, teacher, doctor, entrepreneur etc. Whatever field you point out, women are setting new trademark on it. Women empowerment is growing with a vivid pace, so as to maintain the men to women ratio in all the realms of the workplace.

We need to have an education system where the practical knowledge is being taught and real-life learning is done. STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) effectively covers all these aspects. Government and several corporate also support STEM by CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) by funding and supporting programs and camps organized by STEM.

#1 Maintaining Girl’s Ratio in STEM

Current scenario of the education system has an imbalance of boys and girls ratio. Therefore it is a need to uplift girls in our country so that, they are not neglected from the quality education. STEM CSR avidly works in this field and helps to provides right quality education and real-life learning system for the students.

#2 Reducing Stereotype hindrances

There are so many stereotypes holding back the colorful future of girls. Society hits their confidence harshly. It breaks them and they give up thinking that they aren’t worthy. The irony is that it is happening in the same country where women are superpowers and are effectively performing their duty and responsibility. STEM CSR provides an encouraging platform for all the curious minds of the country. STEM also helps them realize their true potential and a clear path to their passion. By having an open and curious mind which understands and perceives knowledge correctly is set to be a success in future.

#3 Increasing Opportunities for girls

STEM CSR will help grow more employment opportunities for women. As per now, women are talented and skillful but due to less employment, they end being at home. STEM CSR will create more jobs for women where they can love what they do and help other teach manage or whatever task they opt for. Another indirect advantage is that the employed women will be a role model to those who are struggling in their life and it will boost their hope too!

#4 Fostering advanced level skill development in girls

There is constant touch towards the emerging needs of the modern world which STEM provides so that its students gain deep insights of the new and advancing technology and research. It helps students to develop the most demanding skills. The STEM is a boon for females in our country, as it helps females excel in learning and creating.

#5 Improving self-confidence and boosting self-esteem

The way of teaching STEM applies uplifts the overall confidence of students thereby making them a real-world problem solver by innovating and creating solutions. It creates a mindset of learning by fun. There remains no boredom in the process of learning because the process of rote learning is eliminated. STEM nourishes their talent and removes any hindrance coming in their path due to lack of confidence. Stem CSR makes this sure, that girls do not get laid back just because of lack of guidance and confidence.

Our education system has a gap between learning and its application in real world. This system continues until the end of school. With Stem CSR they will get some real working experience in the technological world. This surely will help them to become a better professional in their respective field.

Reasons How STEM CSR Can Nurture Girl Education

The world is developing at a great pace, the things which were used commonly in the 1990’s is no longer utilized today. Right by means of transportation by means of communication, we created a world where nothing is impossible to achieve. To continue with this revolution, we need to increase the implementation of STEM principles in every possible phase. This can be done by diminishing the gender gap in STEM education and creating more and more opportunities for the girl child to come up and become a better version of her in future. Interestingly, there is more involvement of parents in educating a girl child than ever. But due to some loopholes in the Indian education system, it is getting tougher day by day to help girl child develop critical skills and improve technical skills. The only solution possible to improve the current education system is by integrating it with STEM curriculum. And to foster and increase the reach of the STEM concept, CSR or Corporate Social Responsibility can play a major role. Below are five reasons depicting how STEM CSR can prove to be a boon for the education of a girl child.

#1 Orienting the sincerity in the right direction

No one can deny the fact that girls are more sincere towards their duty. We have always been a part of that situation where teacher punished us for not doing homework on time but girls were never on that line. They were the punctual ones. This punctuality and sincerity can take them to heights. Stem education system is designed to improve their mental ability and technical knowledge which through Stem CSR environment is easily available to gain.

#2 Improving Critical Thinking

STEM curriculum provides brainstorming problems, which engages a student in a practical learning environment. Generally, girls are believed as they’re not proficient enough to develop technical skills, but by solving brainstorming problems they will surely break the stereotype down.

#3 Attracting Girls Towards Learning

Generally, girls start to develop a hoax during studies that understanding mathematics and science is very difficult. But when we teach them in a different way by making them learn and apply the STEM concepts in STEM labs, they start to enjoy STEM. With the help of STEM CSR, we can have more labs where students can develop a practical approach and perspective towards learning.

#4 Boosting confidence and fostering

When girls take part in group STEM projects, they get a chance to express them and perform science. During the activities, they get an opportunity to tell what they feel about the project and how they can improve it. This thereby boosts their confidence and helps them to do well in STEM subjects.

#5 Learn about Teamwork

We have heard in the news or through friends and families that a group of boys started a business or group of friends took a step to eradicate illiteracy or poverty from the country etc. but never heard of a group of girls doing such. Research shows that girls lack this trait of working as a team. Curriculum in this education system gives you situations to work and fight together as a group to achieve the targeted goal. This will make them believe that every problem will not be a problem if a team works together on it.

A STEM environment is all we need today to help a girl child a secure and successful future. To know more about STEMCHAMP or if you have any queries, please let us know at info@stemchamp.com

STEM For Girls and STEM CSR

We all are well-acquainted with the fact that how women empowerment is playing a significant role in today’s competitive domain. Be it being a teacher and shaping the future of millions of young minds or flying high in the sky and ensuring the safety of the country, women have never let us down in any field. So in order to maintain this trend, we need to ensure girls receive a quality education and are able to unlock and discover the secrets of nature. To achieve this STEM (Science Technology Education and Engineering) is playing a major role in refining and reinventing the education system.

The current education system is leading the future shortage of skilled workers by providing inadequate education of children high-tech areas. Stem education, these days is being preferred by corporate, society and government institution inform STEM CSR to develop stem skill in the youth of the nation. Stem CSR, an acronym of Corporate Social Responsibility is a great initiative taken by corporates and government to foster STEM in the youth of the country. The learning is fun and relevant in the stem, in addition, it also enhances the critical thinking of students. So that they can rise and shine in this modern technological world.

One of the drawbacks in the current education system is the imbalance in the ratio of boys and girls. To balance this gender gap, we need to foster STEM CSR programs for girls and help to grow this STEM movement. Below are five points, depicting why STEM CSR is beneficial for girls of the country:

#1 Educating in a right direction

Recent research shows that science achievement gap emerges after a kid starts to go to school i.e. by kindergarten. This gap will continue until the class eighth. If kids didn’t get exposure to science concepts or any related opportunities, then they will get less knowledge and idea about the natural sciences, thereby creating a gap. This gap will haunt them for coming years too. With STEM CSR they will get enough chances to learn and apply STEM concepts in the modern world and reach a level of proficiency in their field.

#2 Eradicates the stereotype barriers in the society

There is a common belief that girls can’t be technical workers. They lack the ability to understand and apply the technical terms. This belief deteriorates the confidence inside a girl and then she chooses to sit back in the home, thinking she doesn’t belong to scientific fields. Although this society is well aware of the fact how girl power is ruling this country, still they can’t rid of these stereotypes. The role of STEM CSR is to help students to develop critical thinking and encourage them to become an engineer, scientist or an entrepreneur someday. With STEM education girls can outnumber boys in any field, as STEM jobs are growing at the rate of 17% each year.

#3 Increases Employment Opportunities

Many women in spite of having many degrees and knowledge are not employed. They just take care of the family, despite being too talented and productive. STEM CSR will create jobs for the girls and woman in the society. Giving employment has two benefits. First: it will increase the opportunities for women to grow. Second is. young girls will have the females as their role model. This will develop a thought that women can be anything she aims to become which will encourage them to be like them in near future.

#4 Preparing girl power for this competitive world

The modern world is all about emerging competition and fighting challenges. Educating girls will ensure they’re familiar with the challenges and utilize their skills to do well in their fields. STEM CSR will prove to be a boon for the females of the society.

#5 Boosts Self-Confidence

Education is one of the precious gifts a parent can give their children; it is an asset that happens to grow as you grow. The worth of a good education can never be estimated. It boosts up your self-confidence and makes it possible for you to do your own thing without any fear. Especially for being confident is necessary, and that is why Stem CSR provides an environment for girls to make sure they do not lack behind just because of being afraid.
