STEMROBO Technologies, an Ed-Tech startup focused on leveraging technology in studies that cater to the K-12 segment has recently expanded its footprint in the African Country Ghana with the establishment of Tinkering/Innovation labs in 50+ schools. The new state-of-the-art labs will provide training in robotics, experiential learning, STEM Education, IoT, and Artificial Intelligence to more than 3000+ students. The expansion comes as a part of a larger roadmap of company growth and their commitments to innovate the K-12 landscape in the untapped market where they don’t have specialization in STEM subjects.
In order to improve and provide the best-suited education classes according to Ghana’s curriculum to the k-12 students, STEMROBO’s experienced engineers from India will be providing training to 200+ local engineers/teachers both offline and virtually. The establishment of Innovative labs would provide the students the opportunities to develop computational & design thinking abilities and a space where the youngsters can experiment with, learn, develop and conceptualize different scientific ideas.
Danquah International School, Peculiar International School, Perpetual help School, Destiny Heights Academy, and Alpha Beta International School are some of the leading schools in Ghana where STEMROBO has established Tinkering/Innovation labs and the company is aiming to reach 300 more schools within a year of this expansion.
Commenting on the expansion plan, Anurag Gupta, Founder, of STEMROBO Technologies said, “Ghana is an untapped market where the scope of leveraging technology in studies is quite high and it is an opportunity for us to improve the STEM ecosystem where there is a less recognizable emphasis on STEM education. With our expansion in the African market, we are excited to offer STEM and activity-based learning to Ghanaian schools, demonstrating our commitment to bringing a paradigm shift in providing 21st Century skills in the untapped market.”
“STEMROBO has the potential to make a difference and a real desire to improve the educational ecosystem in Ghana; we want to be a company that is truly a partner in addressing the educational challenges, no matter how difficult they are. These Innovation labs will not only provide a crucial learning experience to students but will also provide an opportunity for Ghana local teachers to hone their skills that will align with the needs of the digital age. The measures we have announced are characterized by a determination to be more open and willing to expand the emphasis of STEM education. We are working closely with the Ghana Govt. to deliver unique solutions to the remotest part of the country.”, he further added.
The Ghana Govt. has strongly emphasised on the importance of STEM education and the numerous career opportunities a student will be exposed to if trained through a STEM programme. Keeping this in mind, STEMROBO has got an upper hand in implementing this initiative on ground.
