The Learn by Building Foundation started as a community project called “The STEMTeers Project”. the STEMTeers project is a project that inspires and connects with secondary school students, by introducing them to Science Technology Engineering, and mathematics. (STEM) and opportunities in STEM. the project also trains volunteers that facilitate STEM clubs; aimed at engaging the students. through hands-on and project-based learning.
The SheTechs project is focused on girls and women. It empowers them with tech skills like mobile and web applications, Basic electronics, and Smart electronics i.e. embedded solutions. My girls have built web apps that provide important help and information, smart bin, gas leakage detector, alarm system, smart secured access systems, smart sticks that can help the blind, etc. One of the things they say after their project session is “I never knew I can do something like this”. The project began in 2021, where selected schoolgirls from low-income families are given scholarships to join the SheTechs project, over 60 girls have participated, and still ongoing. The SheTechs project is also supported by Development Exchange Centre (DEC)
