Abstract

This study strives to create an online STEM curriculum for the children in developing countries, specifically Uganda by evaluating and making a personalized curriculum for the child to train their skills to pursue their career in STEM at a young age. The curriculum consists of different modules, which include videos and quizzes for each lesson, and a few content related games. This curriculum is a unique innovative approach as students from a STEM school help children in Uganda as it is created based on STEM high school students’ own experience and perspective with various fields of STEM topics. The following is the list of topics and activities for each subject. It also explores ways to help children interested in STEM to pursue their interests and develop their knowledge in STEM. While our tangible goal is to create a curriculum for children that incorporates Algebra, Geometry, Climate Change, and Water and Sanitation. In the end, our goal is to create a community with STEM interests in local areas in Africa through innovative ways (Uganda). We hope to gain feedback from children in Uganda about the effectiveness of our curriculum and learn areas we can improve upon.
