In 2016, SelfEd reached out to us about supplying our curriculum to low income schools around India. We jumped at this opportunity to bring STEM concepts to areas with little to no technology present. We realize that millions of students in some areas are unable to escape the poverty cycle due to inadequate education and of no access to the proper resources. With the SelfED partnership, we aim to fix this problem.
Over summer of 2017, Future Engineers Camp and SelfED ran several workshops to introduce basic STEM concepts in the rural town of Padaraynapura in India. Collaborating with corporate partners, Microsoft and Nokia, students received computer tablets and experienced the magic of technology for the first time. Not only did students acquire their first taste on tablets, they also participated in engineering lessons such as, Airplanes and Aerodynamics, Compression, and Tension, and Design Thinking.
We constantly strive to enable students in low-income schools to learn independently with or without teacher guidance to overcome the limitations of their environment by bringing hands-on educational activities and resources. SelfEd is always looking for volunteers to achieve this goal. We are involved in many projects and we are looking for your help! Click here to inquire about offsite volunteering opportunities.
