Developed through extensive analysis and stakeholder engagement, the five-year, US $30 million Chevron Enjoy Science Project brings together nine strategic partners to sustainably upgrade Thailand’s competiveness and innovation by improving the country’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education and TVET (technical
vocational education and training).
