Who We Are
“Providing impactful education for everyone.”
STEM Institution was founded by three individuals from diverse backgrounds who are passionate about one thing: learning. The co-founders carry a wealth of experience in the education field. Between the three of them, they’ve got over 20 years’ worth of combined experience in the sector. What’s more, our team is made up of everyone from STEM advocates, to parents of young children, all of whom bear witness to the rapid evolution in Singapore’s competitive landscape — at work, at school and in our daily lives.
We’re confident that our teachers are highly capable of enabling individuals at various stages in their learning journey to master the secrets of coding and thrive in our exciting world of tech.
As of September 28, 2021, STEM Institution is a STEM.org Accredited Educational Organization.
