2020 started with a bang for STEMpedia! We had the privilege of participating as an exhibitor at the 2020 edition of the International Consumer Electronics Show, now known by its acronym CES, a globally renowned annual trade show that hosts presentations of new products and technologies in the consumer electronics industry. STEMpedia was one of the seven startups chosen by the esteemed Motwani-Jadeja Family Foundation, an acclaimed charitable organization that supports and empowers entrepreneurs in India and around the world, to represent India at CES 2020.
