Unveiling a New Era in STEM Education: The Intel & Casper Impact Partnership with Twin Science
We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with tech giants Intel and Casper, alongside Young Guru Academy (YGA). This groundbreaking collaboration, part of Intel’s Pandemic Response Technology Initiative (IRTI), is set to revolutionize STEM education in Turkey. We are focusing on promoting inclusive STEM and sustainability education, bridging the digital divide, and leveraging technology for positive societal change.
The Scope and Impact of the Partnership
This partnership aims to reshape STEM education, equipping educators with innovative teaching methods and resources. By focusing on inclusive STEM education and sustainability, the project aims to reach many students, including those in underprivileged and earthquake-prone areas. The initiative is set to impact Turkey’s educational landscape significantly, driving positive change through technology.
Twin Science Kits are being used in underprivileged and earthquake-prone areas for YGA’s World Science Movement Campaign.
Empowering Educators and Students
Central to the success of this impact partnership is the empowerment of educators and students. By providing them with the necessary tools, resources, and training, we as Twin Science & Robotics, alongside our partners, we ensure that educators are well-equipped to deliver high-quality STEM education. Students, in turn, gain access to cutting-edge educational experiences, preparing them for success in the digital age.
The Vision Behind the Partnership
Our partnership with Intel and Casper aligns with our mission at Twin Science & Robotics – empowering educators and students with STEM for Sustainability skills. We are targeting 40 schools and 2,000 educators in 17 cities, especially in regions with underprivileged student populations and limited resources. Our initiative is crucial in earthquake-prone areas, tackling educational challenges and ensuring equitable access to quality education.
Intel’s Vision in Education
We are integrating Intel’s Skills for Innovation (SFI) initiative into our partnership. This framework empowers educators and decision-makers to adopt technology for innovative learning experiences. Designed to engage students in various learning environments, Intel’s SFI aligns perfectly with our goals, equipping Turkish educators and students with the tools they need for project-based STEM education and innovation.

Bridging the Digital Divide
A vital aspect of this partnership is its focus and our commitment to bridging the digital divide. The initiative addresses disparities in educational opportunities by reaching out to underprivileged areas and providing access to quality STEM education. This approach is instrumental in creating a level playing field where every student has the chance to excel in STEM fields.
Sustainability and Innovation in Education
Our impact partnership aligns with the global shift towards sustainability and innovation in education. By integrating these themes into the curriculum and teaching methodologies, our partnership ensures that students gain technical skills and a deep understanding of their role in creating a sustainable future. We are playing a pivotal role in this transformative initiative. We are handling content generation, adapting Intel’s content into Turkish, and managing an educational platform for teachers and students. Our expertise extends to providing technical training for teachers, organizing competitions, and offering ongoing support throughout the project.
