IVLP Impact Award Project: STEAM for All

Wadha's project provided hands-on learning opportunities for children in various Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) fields such as programming, robotics, circuitry, electronics, 3D modeling and invention. Wadha organized a school visit for International Day of Education, where she spoke to students and shared information about the project. Overall, Wadha engaged 17 volunteers and 12 students aged 12-17 in the project. During the play session, students were given the opportunity to explore and develop their abilities to understand, solve, and create through STEAM related experiments. Parents of children in the workshop expressed their gratitude and noticed an increased enthusiasm for STEAM.

IVLP Exchange Experience

Wadha's exchange experience led to the development of her IVLP Impact Award Project: "I had the idea for more than a year, [but it was] my IVLP experience [that] empowered [me] to initiate the project and reach out for resources locally and internationally. Exposing my initial idea and discussing it with experts during the IVLP, I was moved to another level where I realized the need and impact of [this project]. "
