To introduce STEM Learning: IBM looks to Partner with Rajasthan govt

IBM is looking to ink a deal with the Government of Rajasthan to introduce the ‘Stem for Girls’ Programme (science, technology, engineering, and math) in the pink city.

According to Harriet Green, CEO and chairman CEO of IBM Asia Pacific, the program was unveiled in March in India and was introduced to states such as Bihar, Telangana, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh. Now, the company aims to scale the program by tapping regions such as Rajasthan, Assam, and Gujarat.

Under the program, four million teachers, one million students, and 2 lakh girls will be mentored by the company. Currently, more than fifty thousand girls are being enrolled across more than 600 government Schools for the initiative, Ms. Green said.

She added that IBM is scouting for schools to work with their curriculum development committee and the state government.

The duration of the Stem program is three years and every year, students will undergo training for at least 45- 50 hours. IBM-ers will also mentor separately for 10-20 hours.

Ms. Green always believed in the power of role models, mentoring, and influence of positive leadership on employees and communities.  Leaders are the ones, who could shape up the nextgeneration of talent and provide then the chance to gain knowledge and hands-on experience in the tech field, business leadership, and project management, she added.

The move by IBM is a big boost for the students in Rajasthan.
