STEM Mexico: Kick-off with a three-day workshop at interactive museum
After a successful STEM program in Brazil, Worldfund launched the first steps to bring STEM to Mexico: a three-day workshop at Papalote Museo del Niño, one of the best children’s museums in Latin America, on November 21-23.
STEM is an educational tendency around the world and it is vital to generate inclusive economic growth, to advance scientific innovation and to create job opportunity to everyone. “We had more than 40 educators each night from all over Mexico and the response was incredible”, celebrates STEM Brasil’s Director Marcos Paim. According to the director, the program will begin next year. “The event was sensational.”
Worldfund already runs a successful STEM program in public schools in Brazil. So far STEM Brasil has trained more than 4.000 teachers with a direct impact in over 450.000 students.
Dozens of creative and innovative teachers attended the event at Papalote Museo del Niño. The educators were from the areas of Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Math.
