ASA Foundation & the Caterpillar Foundation launch - STEM Education Development (Batam, Indonesia, 2022 - 2023)

15 September 2022

Supported by the Caterpillar Foundation, ASA Foundation recently launched a STEM Education Development program for 70 middle school (SMP) teachers from Batam. The 30 male and 40 female adult participants were trained, educated, and empowered on STEM education topics with a key focus on engineering modules such as Industry 4.0, Automation & Robotics, Electronics, Civil Engineering and Lean Management & Manufacturing.

While ASAF provides weekly mentorship along with monitoring and evaluation activities, the trainers will now transfer their knowledge to their male and female youth groups on a long-term, sustainable basis. The program will reach out to over 11,000 male and female students with 50% female participation.

Many thanks to the Caterpillar Foundation for all their help and support!
