The Programme aims to support the advancement of Girls Go Tech participants and serves as a hub of STEM education for teachers and corporates and related stakeholders to share resources and exchange ideas.
On one hand, the Programme will build a pipeline of sustainability in the process of nurturing female STEM talents for the economy through further development of the past GGT participants. It allows GGT participants to further expand their skills and knowledge in coding or STEM-related initiatives on an online platform at their own pace, and experience first-hand the transformative power of technology in the community through real-life activities.
On the other hand, the Programme also provides an ideal platform to drive conversations regarding STEM education among different stakeholders in the education and commercial sector. Teachers will be able to get hands-on curriculum and best practices in STEM education and exchange curriculum and teaching experience. Corporates will be able to access to communities in need, by leveraging their resources to support STEM education.
