Women in STEM Roadshow Success for India

Women Stem Roadshow 2Over 360 young women participated in nine Women in STEM Roadshow workshops in Delhi, Kolkata, Patna, Hyderabad, Kurnool and Aligarh, India, in February 2018. The goals of the workshops were to strengthen ties between the United States and India, create awareness for young women on higher education opportunities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields and encourage more Indian students to consider higher education opportunities in the United States by interacting with university alumni in India and promoting Education USA.

Each workshop focused on STEM fields from international and local experts, teaching and learning pedagogies, hands-on electronic experience including Education USA programs and connections to the Roadshow Network. Workshop participants created relationships with women in STEM fields who will mentor and encourage young, female students to be involved in STEM fields.

The workshops were organized by the U.S. Mission India Public Diplomacy Grants Program, the U.S. Department of State, and Ohio State professors Sultana Nahar, Anil Pradhan, Karen Irving and Director of Intalage Inc. Nasreen Haque through a grant from the U.S. Consulate New Delhi.

Priya Kurle, assistant director of the Ohio State India Gateway, coordinated and arranged these workshops.
