What is STEMEOC? And Why STEMEOC?
STEM Education Organization for Cambodia (STEMEOC) is a locally-registered NGO based in Phnom Penh. Through festivals, programs and events we build supportive STEM communities that inspire Cambodia’s youth in the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
We do this to increase the number of skilled men and women working in STEM-related fields so they can make an equal and vital contribution to the continued economic growth of the Kingdom and the wellbeing of its people, building an even brighter future for Cambodia.
- Engaged Learning – we value independent, life-long learning
- Environmental Awareness – we know this is the single biggest challenge of our time
- Gender Equality – we understand that including a female perspective provides a better outcome for us all.
Why is STEM important?
The study of STEM is recognized globally as promoting innovation, critical thinking and developing high-level problem-solving skills. These skills are in demand worldwide and a greater contribution from a female perspective is vital. In Cambodia, STEM skills are crucial for our continued economic development and are key to tackling the greatest challenges in the world today like improving health and ensuring a sustainable environment for us all to enjoy.
