The HEAD Foundation, in partnership with Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) Cambodia, Kampuchea Action to Promote Education (KAPE) and New Generation Pedagogical Research Centre (NGPRC) organised a STEM Mentoring Forum in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on 4th and 5th April 2023.

45 STEM and mentoring practitioners from SEAMEO STEM-ED Centre, MoEYS, schools, and non-profit organisations from Southeast Asia came together to discuss STEM education and mentoring in the region, with a specific focus on Cambodia.

The main outcome of the forum was to identify effective practices for a successful STEM mentoring programme in Cambodia. The main consensus among participants were STEM needs to be focused on real-world problem solving; and STEM teacher training and STEM delivery in classroom must be country-appropriate.

To develop and sustain STEM development in Cambodia, participants identified enhancing capacity building programmes for educators, providing support through online platforms and STEM toolkits, fostering collaboration and partnerships among stakeholders, and ensuring accountability and sustained commitment as key factors. The insights gained from the forum will shape the design and delivery of future STEM-centric initiatives in Cambodia.
