Moonshot Junior has entered into a global strategic partnership with Australia-based STEMmates, bringing together two EdTech companies empowering kids through hands-on learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). The partnership brings together deep knowledge pools in areas such as practical learning, entrepreneurial training, and technological exposure to help children upskill and be future-ready.
Moonshot Junior Inc., a Silicon Valley-based, educational-management start-up specializing in an entrepreneurial and innovation-centric program for children, is pleased to announce that it has entered a partnership with Australia-based STEMmates. This alliance will help in expanding our reach by upskilling children with skills for the future.
STEMmates is a Western Australian-based initiative seeking to cultivate and empower kids, who will be the next generation’s workforce, to remain curious, imaginative, and think critically.
Through hands-on, activity-based learning sessions, STEMmates’ out-of-the-box, ready-to-go platform provides parents, as well as schools, the opportunity to offer students to further develop an understanding of – and interest in – STEM.
Alok Jain, CEO, and Co-founder of Moonshot Junior, is excited about this strategic global partnership with the STEMmates. He says that both the organizations have similar objectives therefore it will be much easier to align our strategies and expand our footprints.
“At Moonshot Junior, we are offering a unique four-stage project-based learning approach and fostering an entrepreneurial mindset through experiential learning. STEMmates impart STEM education through practical sessions that help kids to learn and apply STEM concepts that are in line with the current school curriculum. Technology plays an increasingly critical role in our learning modules and it will accelerate the learning solutions to make children future-ready,” says Alok.
STEMmates co-founders Santosh Majety and Anil Nair are looking forward about partnering with a like-minded company that shares their belief that learning should not be confined to the classroom.
“With STEM and STEAM—the A in the acronym referring to the Arts, alongside Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths—firmly a focus in schools, and being at the core of what has been coined the jobs and economy of the future, we look to address the question: What can we do to further the interest of our kids in these subjects?” says Anil.
“We believe that Moonshot Jr’s SaaS-based offering would be a perfect complement to what we are looking to achieve in terms of supporting kids’ education while encouraging them to build, develop and engage with fundamental STEM and STEAM concepts and principles. We’re looking forward to working collaboratively in giving kids the best chance at success in STEM and STEAM,” concludes Santosh.
Moonshot Junior Inc. is an EdTech start-up that is remodelling the concept of empowering today’s innovators and turning them into tomorrow’s entrepreneurs through project-based learning and product development experience.
Our community strives to uncover and nurture STEAM skills in children with the help of our innovation and entrepreneurship-centric, SaaS-model-based Innovator Program. Our community and platform are an overlay around the ideas, projects, and products straight out of the creative minds of children between 9-17 years, with guidance from experts.
