Learning Pods

In 2021, STEMGuyana, along with its partners, Tullow Oil, the Department of Youth, and the Guyana diaspora, launched an academic support programme, rolling out twenty-one  ‘Learning Pods’ in nine of the country’s administrative regions. The objective was to create an engaging, effective and scalable cost effective after-school educational delivery model aimed at improving the performance outcomes of vulnerable children.  The programme initially secured funding for four months and then was expanded to eight months.

Recently, the IDB provided grant funding of $940,000USD for expansion of the learning pod program to 3 years, 10 months each year with an increase in learning days per child from 1 day per week to 3 days per week.   The Learning Pods program is intended to be a longitudinal study which can be expanded across the country and region.

Execution of the programme is managed by a mobile and web app which organises more than 1300 tech integrated Lessons Plans that have been created by STEM Guyana’s team of interns.
