Nigeria currently faces a growing population sitting at the topmost figure in Africa and one of the highest in the world. With this comes numerous challenges with regards to standardized means of living, sustainability, as well as economic and financial stability.
In other to deal with these challenging issues, quality education is paramount to achieving success in all ramifications. Most especially Science and Technology education, which offers young people an added advantage of preparing them for the jobs of the future, innovative thinking, and creativity.
Empowering Africans through Education Initiative is committed to supporting Science and Technology education in Nigeria through our programs and partnerships set to upscale the standard of Science and Technology education in Nigerian institutions. One of which is through our program called Experimento NG.
Through this program, we support educators with modern teaching methods and resources tailored to students understanding of Science and Technology.
This program is being carried out in partnership with Siemens Stiftung, while aligning with the UN development goals for sustainable education. Thereby promoting individual development and responsibly contributing to shaping a better society.
Our Experimento NG program is specially designed for teachers in primary and secondary schools. The Experimento NG science kit contains above 130 science practical experiments, a manual and over 10,000 items that can train up 150 students at the same time. Topics covered include areas in energy, environment and health. Areas which are very relevant to Nigerias future development. Further more, these experiments motivate students to raise questions about Science and Technology, develop value based behaviors and responsibly transfer lessons learned to their personal lives.
