HP has a long tradition of supporting innovation in education, beginning with our founders, Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard. For years, HP has worked to change the equation in education. We’re aiming our efforts inside and outside the classroom, working with students, teachers, and entrepreneurs to redesign and complement the learning process, wherever it takes place.
Transforming STEMx Education
More minds are better than one. That's the idea behind our “Transforming STEMx” initiative, which supports new approaches to STEMx education. We do this through our HP Catalyst Initiative, which brings together organizations from around the world that are passionate about transforming education.
The HP Catalyst Initiative taps into the power of collaboration through a global network of educators whose goal is to transform STEMx teaching and learning—from secondary education through the university level—and inspire students to use their technical ingenuity and creativity to address urgent social challenges.
HP’s Education Innovation Funds are grants given to key educational institutions in China and India with an ambitious goal to bring to life new visions of the classroom and help teachers transform their roles – from content provider and instructor to facilitator, coach and advisor.
HP’s Education Innovation Fund in China includes a $1 million donation to Zhejiang University and the National Commission of the People’s Republic of China for United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
HP’s Education Innovation Fund in India includes a $1 million to the Sri Aurobindo Society.
These grants are intended to promote collaboration among educators within and across classrooms, institutions and countries and to increase the visibility of personalized learning approaches.
