EY’s mobile platform is expected to enable STEM Learning for over 6,000 girls in schools across Delhi NCR.
EY has developed a mobile platform in collaboration with Tribal Planet, EY STEM Tribe, to help girls in 13-18 years age group engage in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) curriculum and pursue high-growth careers. India is the first country to launch the global initiative that will provide an entertaining and gamified STEM learning experience to over 6,000 girls in Delhi NCR.
The EY STEM Tribe digital platform forms a part of EY’s global Women in Technology movement, aimed at accelerating gender parity in the technology space and reinforcing the organization’s purpose of building a better working world. Following the launch in India with Delhi NCR, EY will take this to schools in the United States, starting with Seattle and Atlanta.
Available for free on Android and iOS platforms, the EY STEM Tribe mobile app features modules on science, such as climate change, space exploration; technology, such as artificial intelligence, 3D printing or blockchain; the future of work and skills that may be required for future; and inspirational stories of women in STEM. The STEM curriculum on the platform is developed with leading educational institutions around the world. Parents and teachers will also have access to the platform to highlight the need for them to encourage girls to explore STEM as a career choice.
