About Pathfiinder

Pathfiinder is a STEM Education Guidance Initiative that strives to bridge the knowledge gap in STEM education. With a current team size of 10 high school students, we have successfully assisted over 200 underprivileged children through various programs such as coding, science and mathematics classes, monthly webinars, and workshops with eminent personalities from STEM fields. During the lockdown, we provided over 100 hours of online teaching.

We, a group of ambitious high school students, are determined to become future engineers. We are the driving force behind Pathfiinder, an organization that aims to empower underprivileged students by providing them with valuable information, mentorship, field trips, and practical experiences. Our objective is to equip them with the necessary tools to explore their potential, learn, stay informed, and ultimately succeed.
