The Guinean educational system, including primary and secondary school curriculums lacks hands-on science experiments that complement theoretical lessons. Consequently, students do not have opportunities to enhance their knowledge and understanding of subjects that are taught in classrooms and to develop scientific thinking.
Our objective is to increase science literacy in Guinea by exposing students to STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and providing them with access to skills of the “21st century job market”. Guinean students deserve a more comprehensive curriculum which will provide them with the ability to learn the right skills and compete for STEM jobs on the global stage. A STEM education would make students better equipped to solve the country’s most challenging problems by opting into critically needed professions in healthcare, technology, engineering, and data sciences. In addition, the improvement of the education system will help create a strong and effective talent pool of critical thinkers capable of leading incredible innovations suited for the continent.
Help us make STEM fun and functional in Africa
We are a group of professionals, enthusiastic about enhancing STEM education in Guinea. We need your help and support to successfully implement this project. In-kind and financial donations are needed to set up the labs with the appropriate supplies and equipment and to help offset costs related to daily operations and equipment maintenance. 100% percent of your donation will be used to bring this project to life. Please donate to support this project. Together, let’s make STEM education fun and functional in Africa.
