Navratri (literally, nine nights) celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and chaos. But more than anything else, it is the celebration of woman power – Shakti, or the female principle of Nature.
Goddess Durga is the symbol of supreme woman power or Nari Shakthi. She represents everything the ideal women should be. Bold, courageous and fights against evil. …
नारी तू शक्ति है
तू कुछ भी कर सकती है
Women must shine in all field and be a role model for the upcoming generation.
So there need to be a balance and all women should get equal opportunity. This can be achieved only when they are educated. So there is a special emphasis on S.T.E.A.M. (an amalgamated knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) for girls.
So in order to motivate girl children with role models and specifically women, STEAMEDU formed G.E.N.I.U.S (Girls Empowering New India Using STEAM).
In STEAMEDU more than 80% of the students are girls which is a great example of filling the gender gap of women in the field of Science and Technology.
Team G.E.N.I.U.S.(Girls Empowering New India Using STEAM-education -Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) is a team of young girls who are the aspiring innovators of different age groups, recruited from different schools across Delhi-NCR aiming to participate in First Tech Challenge 2019 (an international Robotics Competition) who are extremely passionate about Robotics, Entrepreneurship and Social Outreaches
Being an all-girls team they strongly feel that they can make a difference in the lives of girl students across the country by inspiring them with our journey of STEAM. The world is increasingly getting technology-driven and a career in STEAM offers girls an excellent opportunity to shape our world and to bridge the gender gap that exists today.
In order to achieve this, they have introduced a Robotic Aarti concept with building an Aarti Robot and an app to control it via touch, voice, and mind too, in an attempt to connect technology with spirituality.
So this Navratri lets support their efforts towards uplifting girls in STEAM. ……to empower INDIA as an innovation nation
