President Alvi to Launch STEM Programme for Students Today

President Dr Arif Alvi will inaugurate the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) program today (Wednesday) to impart training in the said fields to the students, Radio Pakistan reported.

What is STEM Programme

STEM Careers Program is a joint venture of Higher Education Commission (HEC) and Pakistan Institute of Engineering & Applied Sciences (PIEAS) to inspire the potential youth of the nation to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Besides, STEM teams also represent Pakistan in International Science Olympiads (ISOs) in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics organized across the world, exhibiting the natural talent of the country in these competitions.

Under the programme, training will be provided to Matric and FSc students. Students of grades 9 to 12 will be enrolled in the pilot programme and will be selected based on their ability and talent. The programme would be implemented across the country, including Azad Jammu and Kashmir.

In his tweets, the minister said the project has been designed to convert 450 government schools into STEM schools because the country cannot change unless government schools are modernized.

He said after the initial 450 schools, more schools will follow this model.
