Sir Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam had the dream of taking Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths education to the grassroots level, so that every child, irrespective of class, could gain from its manifold benefits. STEM Learning aspires to make his dream come true, by making STEM education accessible to underprivileged children .We’re so humbled that our Mini Science Centre is now established in the Mecca of Science- Dr. Abdul Kalam’s home in Rameshwaram, Tamil Nadu.

STEM Learning was conceptualized with an aim to inculcate basic concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) at a school level, thereby encouraging aptitude inclination of students towards STEM learning. Models designed by STEM are easy to handle and add the hands-on experience to the concepts in an easy, practical process and substantiate what they learn from text books.

STEM Learning has provided STEM education to 8,00,000+ Students, trained 5000+ teachers in 850+ urban/rural schools by installing Mini Science Centre in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Goa, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, J&K, Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu and many other states of India.These interactive, entertaining and informative centres open a new dimension for the children to watch-observe- question-learn. The experiments and models give the children a first-hand exposure to popular scientific, engineering and technology theories and principles. The experience fascinates and awakens the young mind with the right scientific thought process.

STEM learning is committed to the cause of making education more engaging and interactive and are committed to the successful implementation of CSR program in education .

All our efforts, together, collectively can make young minds ignited in every corner of the country.

The graph below indicates the stellar achievements of STEM Learning in terms of rapid expansion in number of donors, Mini Science Centres, students impacted and teachers trained.


Graph indicang number of CSR donors year wise -2011-18

In the initiial years, CSR donors who supported the program numbered only a few. However, since 2014 there has been a steady and consistent increase in CSR donors supporng Mini Science Centre Programs. This gradual growth could be aributed to changes in strategic planning and program, exposure to the CSR donor community on various plaorms, exhibion, seminars etc.

Mini Science Centre

Mini Science Centre in schools for teaching science and maths to school children with easy to use hands-on working models & effective teaching aids.

Mini Science Centre

Our Mini Science Centre (MSC) is innovative and interactive with a hands-on approach to teach the concepts of Science and Math. This modern way of teaching not only helps students to understand the concepts easily but also to implement them for the progress of the society.

Each Science Centre consists of 65 table-top working Science models which are informative, easy to grasp and have in-depth manuals (available in English and four other regional languages). MSCs help students learn difficult scientific and mathematical concepts with ease. MSCs Plug & Play models and actually observing concepts, which are often only read in books, ignites the children’s inquisitiveness, thus resulting in engagement. The school takes care of the MSCs after they have been successfully set-up. Also, they are presented according to the syllabus for SSC, ICSE and CBSE style-based boards.

STEM Learning trains teachers so that they understand the models, empowering them to make the learning experience fun and memorable. This helps the children to gain the maximum amount of knowledge through the various models.These MSCs, set-up in underprivileged schools, provide an extraordinary opportunity for the corporates to include education in their CSR.

Mini Science Centre Inauguration is done by renowned dignitaries, so as to infuse enthusiasm & fervour in the school where it is installed.

When underprivileged children get an opportunity to interact with such personalities, they are automatically inspired to succeed. This entire approach has been tailored to enhance the children’s knowledge in the fields of Science and Math, along with giving them feelings of belonging, enthusiasm and happiness.

We, at STEM Learning, see this as an opportunity to show children the new, more interesting perspective of Science and Math.
