Science from Scientists is proud to to announce our new Affiliate Program, supporting STEM education in countries around the world. We would like to welcome our first organization, SaigonScientists, to this new program.
SaigonScientists is a privately owned organization based in Saigon – connecting science and business and supporting young local scientists. SaigonScientists is committed to providing excellent research opportunities in the Life Sciences and Material Sciences with professional and creative scientists who are passionate about science.
SaigonScientists has an outreach initiative called “Science from Scientists Vietnam,” (an Affiliate of Science from Scientists USA). The mission of Science from Scientists Vietnam is to help raise awareness in STEM amongst Vietnamese students and inspire the community to pursue STEM as a career and in higher education. Science from Scientists Vietnam develops and provides free hands-on STEM courses for traditional schools, English Centers, and community events. These programs impact the lives of local students by helping them learn about science and technology through hands-on activities, and by sharing staff excitement about STEM.
The SaigonScientists first lesson was on fingerprints. Check out this great video from their first day.
