Education Consortium for the Advancement of STEM in Egypt (ECASE)

The Education Consortium for the Advancement of STEM in Egypt (ECASE) harnesses the potential of the country’s youth through innovative science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education. World Learning, in partnership with The Franklin Institute, the 21st Century Partnership for STEM Education, and the Teaching Institute for Excellence in STEM, is developing a network of up to five STEM high schools that embody trans-disciplinary collaboration, real world applications, and critical thinking for the 21st century. This initiative directly supports a new vision of Egypt as a country equipped with both the human capital and institutional resources to compete and excel in the international marketplace.

  • This four-year project will serve as a catalyst for change not only for future STEM schools, but also for system-wide math and science education reform in Egypt. The project will establish five STEM model schools throughout the country and deliver comprehensive support to students, teachers, administrators, and key policy, private sector, and community stakeholders. Through institutional capacity development, teacher training, curriculum development, and student learning assessment, the STEM model schools serve as incubators for future leaders and innovators. These students will have the potential to advance at the forefront of research and development initiatives that fuel scientific invention and generate employment opportunities and economic growth.
