Student Talent Enhancement Program Application (STEPapp) has received a mandate from the Indian Ministry of Tribal Affairs to implement its gamified learning app across all tribal schools in the country. This is the first time a government institution has tied up with an Indian EdTech startup on a monetised project.
This initiative will benefit more than 1.5 lakh students from grades 1 to 12 across the country immediately and will expand the scope in the coming years. Through this association, STEPapp will enhance the students' performance in school exams as well as in competitive exams. This will also enable schools to measure the students' learning outcomes through dashboards. The content provided will be in the English language.
STEPapp is a gamified learning solution for students to gain conceptual clarity in math and science through its gamified format making it fun and enjoyable. It offers many features including a simplified testing methodology, measurable learning outcomes, self-paced learning along with content created by more than 400 IITians and doctors. STEPapp has been implemented in 242 Schools, with 35,167 registered students in 21 states including Maharashtra, Karnataka and Gujarat as of August 31, 2020.
Praveen Tyagi, Founder of EduIsFun Technologies (STEPapp) said, "In these pandemic times, education needs to be given its utmost importance and the right steps have been taken. We are able to empower EMRS schools and teachers to provide online learning solutions to these tribal kids and work towards our shared vision of empowering them with quality education. We are proud to contribute to nation-building in these very difficult times."
STEPapp is an initiative to teach students about the concepts of Mathematics and Science in a gamified way so they can have fun while learning various concepts. This project will cost the tribal development department about 15 crores for this academic year.
