Today is World Science Day and 2022-23 is the International Year of ‘Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development’. As part of these observances, UNESCO emphasizes the importance of giving children access to quality science education from an early age, to encourage them to ‘develop curiosity’, and ‘value the quest for truth’.3
We are delighted to mark World Science Day with the launch of the Pratham Books STEM Literacy Programme that helps early learners discover STEM concepts through the magic of storybooks.
At Pratham Books' StoryWeaver, we are firm believers in the role that stories can play in making STEM inspiring and thrilling for young learners.
Stories have the ability to feed our curiosity, our urge to know “what happens when…”, which is precisely what makes them such a powerful learning tool.
The programme offers digital story-based learning resources for Grades 1 to 5, that teachers can use to spark discovery and engagement across a broad range of Maths, Science & EVS topics.
STEM literacy builds core 21st century competencies like curiosity, perseverance, problem-solving and innovation - enabling a lifetime of learning.Teachers play a pivotal role in helping children build these foundational skills. We hope that we can support them with this programme, by bringing the magic of storybooks into the classroom.
