Women and Child Development Ministry in association with Ministry of Education, MyGov and Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology launched an online campaign to celebrate women in Science.
This campaign celebrates women who have carved a niche for themselves in the field of Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). It also encourages young girls who aspire to excel in STEM and contribute towards nation building, an official release said.
The campaign honours young girls from across the country who have performed well in Maths and Science.
As part of the campaign, citizens can congratulate a young STEM star from their state/district through a personalised card and encourage them to pursue these subjects. More than 700 such STEM stars have been featured on MyGov platform.
The campaign was launched on 11 February as it is celebrated as International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The day recognises the critical role women and girls play in science and technology.
The United Nations recognised 11 February as International Day of Women and Girls in Science in 2015 with an aim to promote full and equal access to participation in science for women and girls.
