Under the AAP dispensation’s Education Mentoring Program inaugurated on Saturday, over 200 students from Indira Gandhi Delhi Technological University for Women will mentor 1,000 girl students of Delhi government schools in classes 9 to 12.
The Delhi Government inaugurated the program through its “Youth for Education” ambition, which concentrates on mentoring girls studying in classes 9 to 12.
As per Manish Sisodia, the Deputy Chief Minister, BTech, Ph.D., MTech, and MBA candidates of the university will mentor these students. He said initially 200 candidates will mentor 1,000 students.
He mentioned that the world is becoming a knowledge economy, with passionate research and innovation shortly becoming key to progress. Although the nation is glimpsing some important innovations in every field of work, these inventions are mostly directed by men. The participation of women is deep when it shows up to innovation, particularly in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
Manish Sisodia said with the Education Mentoring Program, the Delhi government needs to empower students of Delhi in the fields of Technology, Science, Engineering, and Mathematics.
Sisodia mentioned that they want their students, especially girls, to adopt the right guidance, which will support them to build sustainable innovations. It is their notion that the girls equally overlook the STEM sector.
According to the Education Mentoring Program, each IGDTUW mentor will guide 5 girls studying in classes 9 to 12, clear their concerns related to careers in STEM, share strategies for cracking entrance exams, help in accessing learning resources and encourage them as they transition from school to colleges and careers.
