Overview of Stem Lab at Phu Thuan A Secondary School

Stem Lab is equipped with robots, sensors, electronic devices, gardening tools, crafts, temperature meters, PH meters, etc. This technology allows students to explore their creativity in a safe and stimulating environment. The Stem Lab also has a mini-library of educational materials, including books, and magazines, which students can use to further their understanding of STEM subjects.

With more than 700 students, Phu Thuan A Secondary School is giving an effort every day to bring the best learning environment for students.     

The quality of education in Vietnam is improving, but there is still a long way to go. Despite recent efforts to improve the quality of education, there is still a wide disparity between the quality of education offered in urban and rural areas. This disparity is especially pronounced in schools that lack the necessary resources and infrastructure to provide quality education.

By building Stem Lab are giving children the opportunity to explore their interests and deepen their understanding of science, technology, engineering and math. This accessibility to technology and educational materials can help children develop the skills they need to compete in the global marketplace and take advantage of the opportunities of the 21st century.

Mitsubishi Electric Vietnam will continue to carry out its mission, focusing on creating a better future through education, bringing sustainable development values, contributing to the prosperity of the environment and the Vietnamese people as well as increasing the strong cooperation between Vietnam and Japan.
