Coding or Technology is always feared by parents and students alike

STEM1 was founded in September 2017 to “Make Coding fun for Kids”. We strongly believe in empowering the younger generation especially girls, to explore technology - tinkering, making mistakes and exploring are all part of the learning



Our mission is to remove the fear of coding for students. .

We empower the students by introducing the fundementals of programming and focusing on Problem solving over scripting. Students are also encouraged to develop their soft skills through presentations and public speaking challenges.


We provide opportunities for students to practice what they have learnt by being leaders in training & ultimately becoming our own Instructors.


Teach 500 kids by the end of 2022 so they can do what they love and make the right career choices.

Our vision is to create a environment that helps both the students and Mentors to reach their full potential by providing the tools & technologies that are needed for them to be successful and #FutureReady.

Who we are

We are a team of engineers & educators with a passion to make learning both purposeful and exciting for children.

We teach Coding & Robotics to students from Grade 3 - 12.
