Making STEM education affordable

India has long had a firm focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) - even the Indian Constitution reads: “It shall be the duty of every citizen of India … to develop the scientific temper, humanism, and the spirit of inquiry and reform.” And although India’s prestigious Institutes of Technology turn out some of the most qualified engineers and coders in the world, getting the chance to apply to these institutions is beyond many a child in rural India. 

Our first Edupreneurs incubator was held in India, where we discovered the fantastic startup that is out to change the face of science on the continent: Experifun. With a low cost science kit that comes in 25 versions, covering chemistry, biology, physical science and more, Experifun’s kit is already in use across over 70 Indian schools. They were one of two winners of that our Edupreneurs cycle, and we’ve just given a seed investment to help this Bangalore-based startup expand their offering even further.  We’re excited to see what they do next.
