The country’s leading life insurer, Prudential Cambodia, demonstrated its continuing support of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects in Cambodia by supporting educational campaigns in Battambang and Siem Reap provinces, as part of nationwide education efforts.

Approximately 200 teachers and principals participated in problem-solving exercises and games drawing upon STEM skills, held at both provincial departments of education, and learnt of the importance of reinforcing the important role that educators play in ensuring students receive a quality, engaging and relevant education.  

Suong Visoth, a physics teacher at Dop Makara high school in Siem Reap City, spoke highly of the event.

“I think promoting STEM education to teachers and students is very important because these subjects help improve teachers and student’s knowledge of important subjects,” he said.

“STEM education is very good for Cambodia’s future, as it helps improve our students and people’s knowledge on science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” he added.

This was the second year that Prudential Cambodia supported to promote STEM education, building on last year’s success of the 2017 World Science Day competition, which saw some 150 students taking part in the event organized by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, and supported by Prudential Cambodia.

Dr. Chan Roath, Head of the Department of Scientific Research at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, noted the need for strong STEM provision in Cambodia.

“The purpose of these workshops is to promote STEM education for school principals and teachers so they can take experiences and ideas to implement at their schools. If you look at the government’s vision, by 2030, we want Cambodian to become an upper income country,” he stated.

In the five years since Prudential Cambodia first offered life insurance services in Cambodia, it remains committed to contributing to the positive development of Cambodia’s health, education and lifestyle sectors.
