Young Makers Vietnam launched in 2014 on the foundation that a true STEAM education can inspire Vietnamese youth to imagine themselves pursuing careers of tomorrow. The project was launched by Everest Education, in partnership with Intel Products Vietnam and the HCMC Youth Union.
The first two years of the Young Makers Challenge were incredibly difficult in getting the structure off the ground, but seeing how the lives of dozens of students have been transformed has made it all worthwhile. In 2016, the team sensed that the vision had outgrown Everest Education – to truly change the lives of students all over Vietnam, Young Makers Vietnam was born as an independent organization. The team has now taken the makers movement nationally, from Saigon to Danang and from Hanoi to Lam Dong.
