In today’s rapidly changing world, certain skills such as critical thinking, analytical problem-solving, research, as well as technical skills are incredibly important, and will become even more so in the future. These skills can be developed right from when a child is born, and one way to do so is by exposing them to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) related activities.

With this objective in mind, the Aga Khan Education Boards for Canada, France, Portugal, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America invite you to participate in the Global Stem Festival, a celebration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The Global STEM Festival continues a long history of the Ismaili Community’s engagement in knowledge, intellectual enquiry, and learning more about the world, so as to make a contribution to improving the lives of ourselves and others.

The Festival encourages children and young adults between the ages of 3 and 17 to explore STEM fields at home with their families, select a project they’d like to work on, and then share it with the global Jamat. From building a volcano to designing an app, participants are free to engage in any project related to STEM.

Once you have registered, create your project (individually or in a group), make a video recording of it (which can include a presentation, a collection of photos, drawings, or written work), upload your recording to YouTube and submit the video link through the submission form between 5 July and 14 August. Then, join us for the Festival Finale on 29 – 30 August where you'll have an opportunity to view all the projects submitted from around the world.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn, develop your skills, and share your work with the global Jamat. To register or to obtain more information, visit the Festival’s website at
