A framework for seeing the bigger picture rather than isolated fragments
Shell believes in empowering and equipping the future generations of professionals and leaders with tools and skills for the jobs of tomorrow. NXplorers is one of the steps beings taken in its aim towards achieving a brighter future.
NXplorers is an innovative educational program developed by Shaping Learning for Shell. It introduces young minds to the complex and creative thinking skills for them to become positive agents of change.
Integrating these approaches into one programme creates a new way of looking at global complexities, and shows young people how to approach the complex challenges the world faces, now and in the future.
Shell wants to address the paradox of declining interest in stem (science, technology, engineering and math) courses among the young by focusing on developing broader skills which ultimately inspires greater awareness on the topic. Through 3-day workshops, trained facilitators worked with student participants and their teachers to find solutions to real world challenges relevant to themselves and their local communities.
It was very fun and i was surprised to learn a lot of stuff that i could actually use in my personal life and also in school.
Aside from it being fun and interactive, we really learned so much that we could apply in our daily lives. At this young age, it’s really good for us to be exposed to these kinds of activities so we’d be able to make a better future.
There are three stages to the NXplorer programme – Explore, Create and Change – with tools and resources for each.
