HeadStart STEM

  • A robust STEM education creates critical thinkers, problem-solvers, and next generation innovators.
  • National Science Foundation predicts that 80% of the jobs created in the next decade will require some form of math and science skills.
  • At a crucial stage when Indian government is promoting initiatives such as Make in India, Skill India, Digital India to encourage manufacturing, technology usage in the country, STEM is turning out to be an essential and integral component of our education.
  • Research shows that children develop interest in STEM fields at an average age of eight.  Hence critical to provide quality STEM learning in schools.
United Way Mumbai's campaign, HeadStart STEM is aimed at encouraging more children to pursue STEM with inputs provided to children from 1st to 10th grades.

HeadStart STEM works to:
  • Create an enabling environment for students to succeed.
  • Develop and enhance STEM learning outcomes through innovative educational material and infrastructure.
  • Engage professional teachers in low-income and government schools to promote new thinking within the classroom and build capacities.
  • Engage community stakeholders to ensure enrollment, retention and quality education.
