Mumbai, 16 May 2023 – STEMROBO Technologies, is proud to announce its collaboration with My Udaan Trust for launching computer education in four schools adopted by My Udaan Trust across Maharashtra. The initiative, launched in 2022, aims to provide students from classes 1 to 8 with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in the digital age. STEMROBO is imparting basic computer literacy to the adopted computer labs by My Udaan Trust which are – Zilla Parishad Primary School Nashik, CSC High School Girgaon, BMC Byculla West School (Marathi and English Medium), and Aryan School in Mumbai. Through this partnership, more than 1000 students are taught computer basics, MS Office, and coding in both Marathi and English.
The initiative has been taken by the My Udaan Trust that has been working with municipal schools and Private NGOs in Maharashtra on projects ranging from skill developments to educational infrastructure improvement. The lab equipped with 20/25 computers holds classes twice a week. The main objective of this program is to nurture creativity and innovation among students, to make kids digitally empowered.
The program’s success is evident from the strong foundation it has laid for students to work and operate computer systems and do block-based coding. In its first year, the initiative saw the enrollment of around 700 students, and it is now in its second phase with over 1000 kids.
STEMROBO has deployed a dedicated trainer to each of these schools to train the students and teachers. The program is designed to develop students’ problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and creativity through hands-on learning.
Speaking about the initiative,Anurag Gupta, Co- founder of STEMROBO Technologies said, “We are delighted to work closely with passionate educators at My Udaan and to see the impact of this program in the first year itself. The enthusiasm shown by the students and teachers has been overwhelming. We believe that computer education is the key to unlocking future opportunities, and we are committed to providing quality education to every student in India.”
As we firmly believe that computer education holds the key to unlocking countless future opportunities, we remain steadfastly committed to delivering exceptional quality education to every student across India.” he added
Ananya Goenka, founding Trustee of My Udaan Trust has been working in the field of charitable education for over 20 years, said, “STEMROBO has given us quality content in Marathi and English for children, to whom language is a big barrier in going forward with computer education. They have helped us in our journey of giving underprivileged students an equal opportunity to learn coding. Celebrating the 75th year of independence, it is our small step towards nation building and we are happy to have STEMROBO as our guiding partner.”
STEMROBO’s computer education initiative is aligned with the National Education Policy 2020, which emphasises the importance of digital literacy and aims to equip every student with basic digital skills.
