STEM education is important because development and progress in any country strongly depends on the analytical and logical skills inherent in its workforce. As per recent studies, the future holds great promise but also has its own share of challenges.
By 2020, over 7 million people are in danger of losing their jobs. 65% of current 7 year old children will have to work at jobs that don’t even exist today!
Hence, it is critical that school education keeps pace with the changing dynamics and requirements of the future.
It is here that STEM literacy can play a huge role in training children of today for the world of tomorrow!
This is why across the developed world, be it America, Japan, China or Korea, ample resources and efforts are being invested in STEM education. India needs to move in that direction too.
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines, namely science, technology, engineering and mathematics through an interdisciplinary and applied approach. STEM education emphasizes on a concept-driven approach that strengthens analytical knowledge, problem-solving abilities and helps students pursue excellence in different fields in these subjects.
All along, the belief was that mathematics is a complex web of numbers and science, a maze of complicated theories! But not any longer. smartstem™ brings a whole new perspective to these much dreaded subjects by integrating them into the curriculum through a cohesive learning approach based on the principles of STEM education.
smartstem™ empowers teachers and students with the right set of skills and technology, so they can teach and learn these subjects with eagerness, ease and enthusiasm.

It has always been my dream to see technology becoming an integral part of a teacher's life inside the classrooms. The smartclass program implemented in our schools has indeed been like a dream come true.
The modules are both informative and enjoyable and it has enhanced the teaching and learning process.
The teaching methodology has transformed from an orthodox, laborious method of verbal explanation to a very interactive and graphical presentation, making teaching more interesting to the teachers and learning easy and enjoyable for the students.
The smartclass program has made the classroom sessions very interesting and interactive. It is helpful for both, the teacher and students in the learning process.
