The Department of Science & Technology (DST) and IBM India are collaborating to start two DST initiatives Vigyan Jyoti and Engage with Science (Vigyan Prasar). The Vigyan Jyoti Programme will promote the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning among the girls. It will create a field for meritorious girls from grades 9 to 12 to pursue STEM in their higher education.
The Vigyan Prasar (an autonomous organisation of DST) will build and run ‘Engage with Science’ a technology-driven interactivity platform. It will create a community of students, teachers, and scientists connecting the high school students to the higher education institutions.
