Kim took Nanmeebooks, a company founded by her mother to increase science literacy and critical thinking, from publisher to content provider four years ago. Since then, she has embarked on multiple projects and literacy campaigns: she launched the Learning Centre as part of the company’s CSR programme to increase hands-on science learning as well as the Little Scientists’ House, a way to encourage kids to conduct experiments.
In 2015, Nanmeebooks had just finished localising MathWhiz, which uses software-based teaching to help children learn at their own pace. “It’s a big challenge, and it’s not cheap. People don’t realise the need. But if schools see it as important, it will be revolutionary, because otherwise kids give up without a decent foundation in math,” Kim says.
