STEM’s children programme
Broadcom Inc., a global technology leader that designs, develops and supplies a broad range of semiconductor and infrastructure software solutions, has formed its national partnership with IRIS (Initiative for Research and Innovation in STEM) to advance the STEM’s education pipeline.
The IRIS National Fair promotes and nurtures science and engineering research among young Indian innovators and creates a national platform for students to represent India at the world’s largest international pre-college science competition, ISEF (International Science and Engineering Fair), and participate in the Broadcom MASTERS® International.
Broadcom’s sponsorship will impact over 4.5 million students across socio-economic and geographical boundaries within India and underwrite the participation of Team India at ISEF 2020, a program of Society for Science & the Public, held in Anaheim, California, in May 2020.
“The privilege of supporting a national science fair program in India as well as those we support in the US enhances Broadcom Inc.’s brand as a leader in corporate social responsibility dedicated to inspiring and empowering the next generation of scientists, engineers and innovators,” said Henry Samueli, Chairman of the Board of Broadcom Inc., and Chair of the Broadcom Foundation that provides oversight for the new partnership.
IRIS outreach activities include partnerships with STEM programs serving children throughout India, face-to-face STEM workshops, IRIS alumni community outreach programs, and mentorship camps for affiliated fair winners and ISEF finalists. fiinews.com
