250 IGDTUW Students Honoured Under Delhi Govt. Mentorship Programme

On Tuesday, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia honoured 250 Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women (IGDTUW) students for guiding over 1,000 girl students under the Delhi government's education mentorship programme.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia felicitated 250 students of Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women (IGDTUW) on Tuesday for providing guidance to over 1,000 girl students under the Delhi government's education mentoring programme. 

The programme was launched in March this year and under it, engineering students of IGDTUW enrolled to provide STEM mentoring for six months to girl students of Delhi government schools.

A total of 250 girls studying engineering at the university became mentors for more than 1,000 girls studying science in classes 11 and 12 in Delhi government schools.

Under the education mentoring programme, girls who had recently cleared the JEE exam had the opportunity to share their experience, learnings and advice with students who were preparing for the same exam.

The mentoring curriculum included various aspects of STEM higher education -- the available choices of courses in STEM, the entrance exams, the examination patterns, preparation needed for entrance exams, resources available for preparation, financial aid schemes of government, how to deal with exam pressure and stress, time management, techniques for better focus among other themes.

"In a survey conducted before the programme, it was found that only 38 per cent of girls knew about the timeline for all their target entrance exams, and after the programme, this number went up to 91 per cent. Similarly, only 21 per cent students had any idea about the nature of papers they had to answer to clear the entrance exams, but later this number went up to 99 per cent,” the statement said.
