Girls in STEM program – 2nd edition
Open call will select up to 30 projects that promote the broader participation of elementary and high school students in scientific and technological careers in Brazil
The call for the STEM Girls: Educating Future Scientists second edition program has been launched by the British Council in partnership with the Carlos Chagas Foundation. The program will provide financial and technical support for projects that have been developed for at least two years in schools, universities, science museums and social organisations in Brazil aiming to include girls in the STEM fields, such as natural sciences, engineering and computing.
The call will select up to 30 projects that promote the broader participation of elementary and high school students in scientific and technological careers in Brazil, generating interest and encouraging them to continue in the STEM areas. Selected projects may request a financial contribution of up to R$ 15,000 each.
Interested candidates can learn more about the program by watching the series of workshops conducted as part of the training phase, between 17th November and 10th December. The sessions were led by experienced educators in activities that empower girls in Brazil and the UK, providing practical tips on how to develop and implement schools projects:
In its first edition in 2021, the program offered financial and technical support for twelve projects in the five regions of Brazil. The project was developed by the British Council in partnership with the Museu do Amanhã and the STEM Education Hub.
The STEM Education Hub is a project resulting from a partnership between the British Council and King’s College London. Sign up to our newsletter to learn about our next events:
