Shoily Foundation is plan to establish STEM education support to ensure quality education. It aims to eliminate poverty and illiteracy through science education and rebuilding the nation by empowering youth. It is registered under the Canada Corporation as Not-for-profit organization with the Corporation number 1197425-4, by the Government of Canada. The business number is 740107933RC0001.
We’re a nonprofit with the mission to provide a free, world-class science education for anyone, anywhere.
1. Science demonstration towards students (SDS):
Our Shoily Science scientists and educators develop hands-on learning modules that are fun and easy to implement which will boost up the encouragement for the students in science area. These learning module hands-on experiments will either be demonstrated physically in school with multimedia projector or remotely (online stream). Shoily foundation science development team will give priority to develop the learning modules to best meet the needs of their local community. Shoily Science team design the prioritized lab experiments based on locally available materials. The learning modules should match the school boards existing curricula beside the local community interest such as agriculture, robotics, manufacturing programming and so on. Our shoily science educators are volunteer instructors who are either working as professionals or graduate students in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). Shoily Science instructors are dedicated individuals with excellent presentation skills.
Online Science Demonstration Program
This program is based on online science demonstration for the students. We develop lots of online videos demonstrating various science experiments that students can watch.
In future, Shoily Science team plan to visit the elementary and high schools; demonstrate the interactive science experiments to students which last roughly one and half an hour in a week (four week in total). At the end of the training, students will be given some quizzes and science based competitive examination. The the top talent will be given full scholarship support for one year. The financial support will be awarded based on his/her family income and the award will be handed over in nearby SERA workshop. In future, Shoily foundation plan to arrange yearly science fair, robotic/programming competition event etc.
2. Science Education in Rural Areas (SERA):
Shoily Science Program, the village Initiative for Science Education (future initiative), will offer professional development support program for science teachers in underdeveloped rural areas based on local curriculum. The program consists of a three-day professional development workshop, trainers will demonstrate interactive science experiments using locally available materials that could be integrated into their own classrooms eventually. If the material is truly not available in the closer areas, Shoily foundation will support them to provide them with those materials. These hands-on science-based (or STEM) experiments will be developed by Shoily Science design team to focus on physics,
chemistry, biology, material science, and engineering with given priority on regional needs, and available resources. The educators also provide offline support to the attendant trainees in the implementation of the experiments. As of 2021, SERA plan to conduct this program in Bangladesh and has trained over 50 teachers which may impact roughly 1000 students remotely!
