About the institution

Fun­dación STEM sin Fron­teras (FSsF) is a non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cat­ed to pro­mot­ing STEM edu­ca­tion in mar­gin­al­ized rur­al com­mu­ni­ties of Colom­bia. The orga­ni­za­tion aims to fos­ter crit­i­cal think­ing, cre­ativ­i­ty, and prob­lem-solv­ing skills in STEM while bridg­ing the gap between tra­di­tion­al learn­ing and the capac­i­ty build­ing need­ed today. One of its pri­ma­ry goals is to empow­er girls and young women to pur­sue STEM edu­ca­tion, rec­og­niz­ing the sig­nif­i­cance of increas­ing diver­si­ty, inclu­sion, and inno­va­tion in the field. The orga­ni­za­tion achieves this mis­sion by pro­vid­ing var­i­ous tools and plat­forms, includ­ing sci­ence fairs, social media plat­forms, blogs, webi­na­rs, and forums, to high­light its work and share infor­ma­tion and resources about STEM edu­ca­tion. Through its efforts, FSsF aims to cre­ate a more inclu­sive and equi­table soci­ety where every­one can have access to STEM pro­grams and the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pur­sue their pas­sions and achieve their full potential.
