Thank you China Global Television Network (CGTN) for including Coding Lab in the feature on females in STEM courses! In light of International Women’s Day, CGTN covered the uptick in women pursuing STEM courses.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), which were traditionally seen as fields dominated by men. In Singapore and at Coding Lab, we’re proud that our parents and educators are encouraging their daughters to pursue STEM fields.
“We do increasingly see more and more girls. Some of our best students are girls, actually. We used to have all boys classes, but now you see at least three to four girls in every class, so I would say about a 30 percent increase.”Candice Wang, Director of Coding Lab
Coding Lab has always been proud of encouraging all of our students to strive for the best in the programming field, regardless of gender, and we are grateful to have been recognised for it. We have always aimed to provide a welcoming learning environment for every student, through displaying a good mix of projects by boys and girls, and teaching with examples relevant to both genders.
“Coding is important. One of the most important things in your future and in our present too.”Kameswaran Mekala Kalai Aathiraa, 10 years old, Young Computer Scientists
