In today’s rapidly evolving world, the importance of STEM-based sustainability education cannot be overstated. It is through both STEM and environmental education that we can equip the next generation with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in a sustainable future. Recognizing the significance of this endeavour, Twin Science, Rolls-Royce, and Young Guru Academy (YGA) have joined forces in a groundbreaking partnership. Together, we aim to revolutionize STEM for Sustainability education, making it accessible to children from underserved communities and empowering them to become the innovators and problem solvers of tomorrow.
Why Rolls-Royce used Twin Products?
Rolls-Royce, a renowned pioneer in cutting-edge technologies, has long been committed to meeting our planet’s vital power needs while ensuring sustainability. As part of their broader mission, Rolls-Royce recognizes the importance of inspiring future dobule-winged (competent & compassionate) scientists and engineers.
By partnering with Young Guru Academy and Twin Science, Rolls-Royce leveraged expertise in STEM for Sustainability education, driving meaningful change in the lives of future leaders. This collaboration enables Rolls-Royce to reach millions of children globally, instilling a passion for STEM and cultivating the skills necessary for a brighter and sustainable future. The target is 25 million children by the year 2030.
Rolls-Royce, a global leader in advanced engineering and technology, has chosen Twin Science as a trusted partner to develop a white-label STEM kit. This collaboration brings together Rolls-Royce’s prestigious brand and Twin Science’s expertise in STEM and sustainability education. With the Twin Science kit as the foundation, Rolls-Royce is able to offer a comprehensive and engaging educational experience aligned with their brand values.
The kit, adorned with the Rolls-Royce logo, contains a carefully crafted selection of electronic components, modules, and a curriculum designed to spark curiosity and inspire young learners. This innovative approach allows Rolls-Royce to leverage Twin Science’s expertise in delivering high-quality STEM education while ensuring that the kit reflects their commitment to excellence and innovation. By combining their resources and knowledge, Rolls-Royce and Twin Science are empowering the next generation of innovators, engineers, and problem solvers.
What is Young Guru Academy (YGA)?
Young Guru Academy (YGA) is an international NGO and leadership school founded in Turkey. With a focus on empowering youth through education and mentorship, YGA has been instrumental in transforming lives and nurturing young talents. YGA’s commitment to fostering double-winged individuals aligns perfectly with the objectives of the Twin Science and Rolls-Royce partnership. Through their network of volunteers and partnerships with esteemed institutions, YGA brings expertise and guidance to educational initiatives, ensuring their impact reaches far and wide.
YGA organized a World Science Movement STEM workshop in Ata Secondary School in Eskisehir Turkey, with underprivileged children. Rolls-Royce Turkey office employees also joined the workshop and shared their comments.

Importance of Partnering for Impact in Education
Collaboration is at the heart of driving meaningful change in education. By partnering with like-minded organizations, we can pool our resources, knowledge, and networks to create a more significant impact. The Twin Science, Rolls-Royce, and YGA partnership exemplifies the power of collaboration, combining the expertise of each organization to develop comprehensive STEM Kits and curricula that engage and inspire young minds. Together, we believe in creating inclusive and equitable access to quality education, empowering children from all backgrounds to explore the wonders of sustainability, science, technology and environment.
“It started in London, and a year later we have it. We are going global now. There is no reason we can’t use this stem kit anywhere. Children have the same thrust for learning. They have the same aspirations. So congratulations!”
Scope of the Partnership
The Twin Science, Rolls-Royce, and YGA partnership go beyond the mere provision of STEM Kits. Together, we are committed to bringing the benefits of STEM-based sustainability education to underserved communities around the world.
Through our joint efforts, we have reached students in Kenya, South Africa, UAE, Turkey, Japan, Singapore, and beyond. We have also supported local trainers, empowering them to enhance their teaching methods and implement the STEM Kits effectively in their classrooms. Additionally, we have established an online platform that facilitates peer-to-peer learning and serves as a hub for the teacher community to exchange ideas, resources, and best practices.
“Digital-driven education will be the pillar of modern-day teaching. To educate children in the most effective way possible, you need to adapt to the way their thoughts are structured. Rolls-Royce STEM Kits allowed all levels of teaching to take place – from basics to advanced. It is a well-developed, fun and informative programme.”
The Impact of the Partnership
Through this program, we have introduced a comprehensive STEM Kit that includes electronic modules and parts, designed to facilitate hands-on learning experiences. This kit enables children to delve into the realms of robotics, coding, and AI, nurturing their curiosity and igniting their passion for STEM for Sustainability subjects. By aligning the curriculum with 21st-century skills and Sustainable Development Goals, we are not only empowering students with technical knowledge but also fostering critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration.
“Science is fun to learn, it gives us the knowledge about the reasons why things happen. Science enables us to learn how to build machines that makes our life easier.” – Lexy
“Science and mathematics are in the core of every occupation. Everything is changing so fast in this world and science is the core element to adapt that.” -Patience
Promoting Education Equality through CSR Projects
As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, Twin Science actively engages in projects that promote education equality. We understand the significance of providing equal educational opportunities to children from all backgrounds, regardless of their socio-economic status. Through our partnerships with industry leaders, we have developed and implemented targeted CSR projects that aim to create a level playing field for students. By focusing on STEM education, aviation education, and sustainable education, we empower young minds and enable them to explore their potential in these critical fields. These education CSR projects are designed to break barriers and ensure that every child has access to quality education, paving the way for a brighter future.
The transformative partnership between Twin Science, Rolls-Royce, and YGA marks a significant step towards a more inclusive and equitable STEM education landscape. Together, we are empowering young minds, instilling a love for science and technology, and nurturing the skills required to shape a better future. By joining forces, we believe in the power of collaboration to drive meaningful change and unlock the potential of every child. As we continue this journey, we remain dedicated to reaching millions of children worldwide, providing them with the tools and opportunities they need to thrive in the digital age.
