What We Do

While there is no single definition for STEM, STEM can be defined as a set of inter related disciplines and skills. STEM training allows for the development of expertise and capability in each individual field and enables the ability to work across all STEM related disciplines with a view to generate and stimulate ground-breaking ideas and products relevant to current global trends.

Our Current Programmes

Quality Training

Mentorship & Job Shadowing

Job shadowing has many potential benefits for both the individuals being mentored and the mentors or hosts within our immediate community. It is an opportunity for mentors and hosts to share best practices and to allow for self-development of the individuals to be mentored. The participants use their experiences within different organisations that Girls in STEM Trust partners with across all fields as a way of “testing out” possible career options.

NEW IDEAS

Africa Code Week

An initiative in 36 African Countries, Africa Code Week allows for the intensification of programming and coding skills for the African Youth every year in October. The Girls in STEM Trust volunteers and participates in ensuring that this initiative is a success. I the last edition of the Africa Code Week in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, in October 2018, 530 students were trained in 25 schools in just three weeks and 279 of these were girls! We’re gearing up for the next season!
