YUVA Academy conducted a Team Building session at Strike City, Bagatelle, with 14 young Mauritians who form part of the Robotics Team Mauritius. In October, the team will participate in FIRST Global Challenge 2022, hosted in Geneva, Switzerland.
STEM Education in Mauritius
STEM is an abbreviation for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM is an interdisciplinary approach to learning where academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons. Students apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in contexts that connect the classroom and the world around them.
YUVA is the pioneering organisation promoting STEM education in Mauritius and the rest of Africa.
STEM is a curriculum based on educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
Robotics Training in Mauritius
YUVA’s STEM education initiative aims to inspire science and technology leadership and innovation in young people from Mauritius to increase understanding, impress the importance of cooperation, address the world’s most pressing issues, and improve the quality of life for all.
By showing the youth of Mauritius that if they learn how to communicate, cooperate, and work together using the tools of science and engineering to find solutions to the world’s grand challenges – water, energy, security, medicine, food, and education – they learn how to work with each other, trust each other, and become part of a truly global community.
