Comprehensive approach, covering three areas: basic coding and computer skills, non-cognitive skills such as problem solving skills and analytical skills, and increasing confidence around STEM.
Participating schools can engage in a range of extra-curricular activities to enhance the effectiveness of the student workshops. The activities are ran by TWF staff and subject matter experts from our corporate and supporting partners. These include female role- model/career talks, company visits, mobile classrooms, inter-school hackathons/competition so participants can experience real life examples of the diverse array of career opportunities available in the technology industry.
To provide students with better support, the Programme also provides teacher workshops with tailor-made training content in STEM, ranging from sharing of future career trends and development of e-learning experiences, visiting tech companies, to training on online learning tools.
