THE gender gap still exists in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), although women have made strides in occupying leadership positions and key roles in the sector and related industries such as banking and finance.

To help narrow the gender gap and increase STEM awareness at the grassroots level in Malaysia, Mastercard has partnered with the National STEM Center of the Ministry of Education (MOE) and social enterprise Arus Academy to launch Agents of Tech, a Girls4Tech STEM education programme, within the Digital Educational Learning Initiative Malaysia (DELIMa) portal.

Based on the foundations of Mastercard’s Girls4Tech curriculum, students will learn through a series of comics and interactive dialogues where they will follow a character – Agent Aliya – to solve five missions.

It is curated especially for girls between the ages of eight to 12 years to explore STEM in their education and future careers.

To access Agents of Tech, students, teachers and parents can visit https://sites.google.com/moe.edu.my/login and key in the ID and password provided by the school. Students can also access the site directly at arus.cc/agentsoftech.
