Shell Trinidad and Tobago Ltd. (STTL) has been implementing Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts and Math (S.T.R.E.A.M.) Programme for over a decade. This national programme aims to strengthen the energy sector’s talent pipeline and the country’s progress at economic diversification by enhancing critical thinking, creativity and problem solving through strengthening awareness, competence and the delivery of Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics within the educational system. Since 2019, NIHERST has been one of Shell’s facilitators in STREAM education.

The programme provides key opportunities through a combination of informal education and hands on learning around innovative science and technology resources. It not only communicates the fundamentals of STREAM it also enables the foresight to demonstrate how STREAM connects to the everyday and real world. This allows the concept of STREAM to become more relatable to the correlation between science and society.

  • To develop 21st century skills such as creative problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration and communication.
