The emerging role of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education is a direct result of rapid technological and scientific advancements. In promoting technological innovation and sustained economic growth, its dominant position is uncontested.
According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Human Capital Report 2017 report, Pakistan has listed in the bottom five countries for education and skills development. As the outlook of the country’s education system deteriorates, the quality of research in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics suffers.
With the technological revolution on the horizon, it is being predicted that STEM education will directly impinge on labor productivity. As per statistics, by 2022, robots will take over the jobs of 75 million people globally while simultaneously creating more than 130 million new jobs.
There is now a growing realization amongst policy makers on the significance of quality education, especially STEM. The Government is currently collaborating with the private sector to introduce reforms in the fields of education, science, and technology. In a bid to shift towards STEM education, President Arif Alvi has launched the Presidential Initiative for Artificial Intelligence & Computing (PIAIC).
Focusing on the current and emerging requirements of the industry, and the future, Fun Doctrina (Pvt. Ltd) has developed distinct techniques, detailed experiments, a highly credible team of professionally qualified teachers, children’s book, a comprehensive project manual, and colorful illustrations to help the students learn the concepts of STEM.
