DPS students bagged the STEM Changemaker Scholarship for 2022. Areen Afaq Ashai of Class 10th and Rahil Ayoub Thakur of Class 12th, from DPS Srinagar, are awarded the Global STEM Changemakers Initiative Scholarships.
This new initiative aims to provide immersive learning experiences to 5,000 young people worldwide through STEM, global competence, and sustainability-focused intercultural exchange programs. The scholarship aims to prepare young people for a changing world by instilling critical knowledge skills in digital science, data science, and broader STEM awareness in order to improve critical thinking, intercultural awareness, and team skills.
It begins with a virtual curriculum on global competence skills for young people aged 14 to 16 and culminates in a two-day in-person workshop focused on sustainable development and local impact. The 2022 workshops will be held in Perth, Australia, Cairo, Egypt, Jakarta, Indonesia, Belgium, and Italy.
Congratulating the students, Principal Shafaq Afshan said, “We are delighted that our students are not just competing on a global level, but also successfully competing to win scholarships. It is a tribute not only to the talent of our students but also to our teachers who train them.”
Chairman Vijay Dhar too congratulated the students and said “At DPS Srinagar we have always aimed to nurture the talent in the community so that it can compete at all levels – local, national and international. We are constantly in the process of improving and exploring so that the students in the valley don’t feel hampered by lack of exposure.”
