PARTNERSHIPS

Get to Know Us

Partnerships play a vital role in achieving collective goals and driving meaningful change. As stated by Helen Keller, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." This quote highlights the significance of collaborations and the power of working together to accomplish greater impact than what can be achieved individually.

Physics Beyond

Are you a STEM enthusiast or aspiring mathematician or physicist looking for a community of like-minded people? Are you interested in exploring nature from a researcher's point of view? Are you interested in high-quality gifted programs to stretch yourself? Then PhysicsBeyond is for you! Join PhysicsBeyond's discord server here and follow PB on LinkedIn to discuss maths and science and get updates on its programs.

 

In the past, Physics Beyond has run a highly-selective and intensive 2-year maths program called BeyondResearch. Currently Physics Beyond is running a 2-month program Introduction to Quantum Research for Girls, as well as a course Physics From A Researcher's Point of View  on YouTube. In the future, PB may host programs such as a Linear Algebra Introductory Course and Introduction to Machine Learning.

 

Programs are delivered (fully or partially) by the researcher and science educator with 8 years of experience - Dr Filip Bar - who is interested in bringing gifted education to high school students. Instead of the dogmatic traditional approach to maths and physics, Dr Bar focuses on imparting the creative process of discovery to his students, many of whom are aspiring mathematicians and physicists like you.

WORLD HEALTH INSTITUTE

Across the globe, 600 million people are affected and 400,000 die annually due to food safety contamination. The detection technologies for harmful substances such as bacteria, toxins, and metal ions are primarily controlled by large corporations and government organizations. Unfortunately, there has been a lack of recent investment in these technologies, resulting in a gap between production and consumption and a disparity between personal safety and societal standards. To address these issues, WHI is focused on increasing awareness, developing an affordable and accessible lab-level biosensor, and launching a smart application to tackle food safety concerns.

In addition to food safety, food security remains a pressing global issue, with hunger and malnourishment being major causes of death. WHI addresses the challenges on the demand side by organizing food and supply drives and maintaining a close partnership with the LearningPlanet Alliance (affiliated with UNESCO) and the FAO, aiming to achieve UN SDG2 of Zero Hunger. Furthermore, there is a lack of institutions and recognition for public health in many countries. WHI aims to raise awareness about general health issues that transcend academic boundaries.

WOMEN IN STEM

The Women in STEM (WiSTEM) initiative is a source of inspiration and empowerment in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Carolyn He, the president for 2023-2024, emphasizes the importance of perseverance, networking, and taking risks.

Carolyn's involvement with WiSTEM began unexpectedly, underscoring the role of chance in our lives. While cleaning out her spam inbox, she stumbled upon an old email about becoming a WiSTEM ambassador. This serendipitous encounter serves as a reminder to seize seemingly insignificant or delayed opportunities.

THE ACTIVE YOUTH

The Active Youth started at the beginning of 2021 as a small group of students from Barcelona who wanted to make a change and contribute positively to society.​

Wanting to encourage others to do the same, we decided to create an organization that would make it easy for youth to share ideas, learn, and take action.

Being one of the few student-led organizations, we are a community that strives to innovate and work all together to develop everyone’s ideas.

And this is just the beginning.
