With Cisco’s support, Pratham Books has developed a range of richly illustrated, engagingly narrated storybooks for children based on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) themes. They introduce and explore STEM concepts in a way that sparks children’s curiosity, draws them in, and sets their imagination alight.

Awareness and understanding of STEM subjects is a growing necessity, with the National Science Foundation predicting that 80% of the jobs created in the next decade will require STEM literacy.

Our STEM-based books are available in nine languages, and can be enjoyed in print form, as digital books, and as audio-visual books. To ensure greater access, STEM libraries – each consisting of over a hundred of these books – are distributed among schools and non-profits serving children in need.

These storybooks aim to bring alive the wonder of science, and help build a new generation of critical thinkers and innovators.
