When young people have an improved understanding of the application of STEM subjects in real-life situations, their perceptions, aspirations and attitudes relating to STEM subjects and STEM careers are broadened.
✨Inspire and make a difference
Mentoring the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians is impressively splendid.
STEM Ambassadors are helping young people engage with STEM in the classroom and via online activities.

There exist no gender boundaries in STEM, yet some girls lose confidence in STEM subjects due to early experiences and socialization that promote negative stereotypes about females' lack of ability in these subjects. #DayOfTheGirl
How to challenge the stereotypes:
The dark side of technology.
Ever been bullied by someone you know but you have "Never met?"
Someone who spreads false rumours with the intention of defamation of character and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Showing tolerance and empathy might make a difference.
To build a peaceful future, it's crucial for us to promote #Tolerance, understanding and acceptance of diversity in all aspects of our lives.
The practice of tolerance encourages and empowers people to explore forgiveness and alternatives to revenge and violence. #ToleranceDay
Effects of #climatechange pose a lot of risks to peace, yet without an environment of peace, sustainable development cannot thrive.
Science explains how our lives are impacted by climate change and the #ClimateAction needed to combat it.
#scienceday of peace and development
If you love how easy Science has made your life, celebrating #ScienceDay is important.
Scientific knowledge is critical for the advancement of technology and innovation, hence, let's celebrate the accomplishments made through the combination. #WorldScienceDay
By embedding SDG #ClimateAction in STEM lessons, we provide young people with a strong knowledge base around #Climatechange related issues and a strong set of transferrable skills required to combat it. #ScienceDay for peace and Development.
It is incredible seeing young people at the forefront of tackling the issue of the climate crisis. Indeed, "The future of the planet concerns all of us, and all of us should do what we can to protect it." Wangari Maathai.
We have seen evidence of how #climate change disrupts livelihoods, displaces families, and pushes people to poverty.
By making choices that have less effect on the environment, we can be part of the solution and influence change. #EndPoverty
"Climate Change and Sustainability"
Everyone of us can help limit global warming and take care of our planet.
By making choices that have less harmful effect on environment, we can be part of the solution and influence change.
Today is #DayOfTheGirl.
We are celebrating girls' tech power as well as advocating for their digital access and inclusion across technology and innovation.
Girls need digital literacy skills to reach their full potential in an ever-growing digital society.
