Education in science, technology, engineering and maths
We actively support science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) through a range of programmes in more than 20 countries. NXplorers, our flagship STEM programme, aims to help young people develop creative thinking to bridge the skills gap. NXplorers is now active in 19 countries, and engaged more than 78,000 students in 2022.
In 2022, we extended our STEM programme in India to cover all age groups from grade 7 to university level to help students gain the skills and confidence to engage in world issues. In the UK, our year-long Girls in Energy course taught some 300 young women about energy and career opportunities in the energy industry. And in Malaysia we worked with the Ministry of Education to make our STEM programme available to students across the country.
