Topic: Stem Strategy, Role of Teachers
Dr. (Mrs)Yasodha Shanmugasundaram
Mother Terasa Women`s University
Dr. Yasodha started the session by explaining the word STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. She said the main challenge for the students is to identify the problem-solving strategies in various disciplines. For the same, awareness of the problem plays a vital role. This is only possible, if the students are able to analyse and present the technical or scientific information precisely.
Dr. Yasodha mentioned, STEM enables the students to understand the field along with the practical application, theories and concepts. They will also understand that people engrossed in STEM are dedicated to improve the social and environmental issues and resolve the societal problems.
Dr. Yasodha vocalized, STEM is not only the responsibility of the tutors but rather the parents also need to take an active part in promoting STEM and shorten the gap. A seed of curiosity needs to be implanted in the minds of the students at an early age.
Dr. Yasodha stated that STEM should be made mandatory in university level for the students to make them as good citizens. Technology, Engineering and other areas of STEM invades every aspect of the lives of students and will reflect in a whole new way of living.
More than 100 participants, participated in this Expert Talk on STEM Strategy and took part in the discussion.
