STEM education is as relevant in Africa as it is in every part of the world

STEM education is as relevant in Africa as it is in every part of the world. Knowledge societies which form the bedrock of globalisation and technological advancement are built on the back of research and innovation powered by basic sciences. However, according to data from UNESCO, the region faces large deficits in education infrastructure with only 22% of primary schools in sub-Saharan Africa having access to electricity. Furthermore the rates of education exclusion within the region are the highest in the world with 1 out of 3 adolescents of lower secondary age and over half of higher secondary age being out of school. The gap widens when gender and discipline are included as factors.  We work with partners to deliver programs at target schools and communities with a focus on children aged 8 – 17. STEMJets provides a means for students to have fun while learning about science and explore topics at different difficulty levels with easy to learn activities. In addition students are availed opportunities to learn from their peers.

STEM Education Advocacy & Community Outreach

Through a deliberate and inclusive process we assess community needs and co-create solutions based on identified needs. Let us know by filling out our survey how the quality of STEM training can be improved.

Experimental Learning Aids

With a focus on Maths, basic sciences, environmental education and digital innovation, we develop simple games, stories and learning aids to support an active learning approach in the classroom. Conversant of the fact that the 4th industrial revolution is being powered by automation and processes in the cyber-physical space, we acknowledge that a dynamic program content that fuses digitalisation and basic sciences should be prioritized.
