Live STEM Demonstrations (Virtual Volunteering)

 

United Way Mumbai

Program Description

The global outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has adversely impacted the schooling system. The worst affected are children from marginalized communities as they have limited or no learning opportunities at home. Employee volunteers can create learning opportunities related Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) for children to learn at home. They may conduct live demonstrations on digital platforms focusing on simple scientific experiments or simplification of abstract math concept or introduction to logical games. While keeping these demonstrations safe and engaging, volunteers may help children understand the scientific principles behind them and relate them to their everyday lives.

 

For many children, Science and Math are challenging subjects in school. They struggle to make sense of the varied concepts being taught and are unable to see their relevance to everyday life. Without adequate guidance, the children are unlikely to develop an appreciation for the subject and nurture scientific thought. And with schools closed on account of the pandemic, children from marginalized communities have limited or no access to guidance or learning opportunities.

 

Volunteers Role:

To make the subject come alive for children, employee volunteers can create learning opportunities for children to learn at home. These may include:

  • Live demonstrations focusing on simple scientific experiments. Simplification of abstract math concept or introduction to logical games such as solving a Rubik’s Cube or a game of chess.
  • While keeping the demonstrations safe and engaging, volunteers may help children understand the scientific principles behind them and relate it to their everyday lives.
  • During the activity, they may also engage the children in a discussion about current STEM related news. A DIY Science kit may also be gifted to the children to help them start their journey of learning through exploration and discovery.

  

Where:

The virtual session would be conducted on digital platforms like Zoom or Google Meet. A group of employees would work with children in smaller groups using the break-out room feature. The duration of the entire activity will be 90 minutes.
