Overview

The 18th STEM Festival is a celebration rooted in our core values of engaged learning, gender equality, and environmental awareness. This event serves as a unifying platform for Cambodia’s dynamic STEM community, sharing a common objective to enhance the quality of STEM education in the country.

Aligned with Cambodia’s national vision of becoming an industrialized nation, known as Cambodia 4.0, the festival plays a vital role in inspiring the youth to embrace STEM fields. By adopting a STEM education approach, we empower students to apply their skills and knowledge to address real-world challenges, fostering innovation that can contribute to Cambodia’s sustainable development.

The festival brings together Cambodia’s youth, educators, families, universities, and organizations involved in STEM, environmental initiatives, waste management, and clean energy. It’s an inclusive space for collaboration and learning, where everyone can play a role in shaping the future of STEM education in Cambodia.

We invite you to be a part of this transformative experience – showcase projects, sponsor the event, participate in competitions, engage in STEM activities, share expertise, or simply soak in the inspiration. The 18th STEM Festival is a collective effort to create a brighter and more resilient Cambodia through thriving STEM education and impactful innovations. Join us on this exciting journey!
