To mark International Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) day, the Ministry of Public Infrastructure and European Union Delegation to Guyana, with support from the Ministry of Education, launched the third and final campaign to promote STEM for girls in Guyana, at the Arthur Chung Conference Centre on Monday, February 11, 2019. The event was attended by 200 persons who included representatives of some 15 Secondary schools from regions three, four, five and ten.
This campaign will see the release of 10 new promotional videos. For three consecutive years, the campaign has interviewed/interacted with women to learn more about their experiences working in a wide range of STEM-related fields. A number of the videos capture interviews with well-respected figures who strongly support the sentiment that in order to get good jobs, creative jobs, and good salaries, girls need to apply themselves more seriously to STEM subjects. The project ‘Women in Engineering and Technology Awareness campaign’ which included the three-year #GyGirlPower campaign was funded by the European Union as part of the gender approach in the Integrated Coastal Zone Management project (ICZM). The ICZM is ongoing since 2017 and will continue up to 2021 with a budget of EUR 30 Million funded by the European Union.
The 2019 campaign videos will be released over the coming weeks. The videos from the previous campaigns can also be found on Facebook or Youtube by typing in the hashtag #GyGirlPower or #STEMworks.
