Freelance Science Communicators

About Us

Join us to reform educational practices for children in Pakistan. Together let’s do good the smart way.

Our Science Communicators work to end educational inequality in Pakistan.

They’re change makers.

Science Fuse is a social enterprise working to change the way STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education is perceived and communicated in Pakistan both in and outside classrooms. We create interactive and informal STEM-learning environments for young learners. We believe that if children especially those from underprivileged backgrounds get a chance to experience hands-on and engaging STEM education, our world would be in a much better shape. If these children develop a passion for learning in something they care about then they would be less likely to dropout of school. And staying in school gives them a chance to better the world.

Pakistan was ranked at 113 out of 127 countries in the Global Innovation Index (GII) 2017. One of the main reasons for this is the low standard of science education in the majority of our educational institutions, both private and public/charitable. Join our team of changemakers to reform Science Education in Pakistan and help us shape future innovators and problem-solvers of the world.
