STEM learning in Africa – SIA

by Becky Parker

Fara runs a non – profit organization called STEM in Africa (SIA) and their mission is to encourage and galvanise more young African students to go into STEM careers.

They do this by hosting events, through a well-established mentorship scheme and a radio show. The mentorship scheme focuses on teaching students from local communities how to tackle climate change in Africa and the importance of sustainability. In addition, SIA are building a science hub for our students in Nigeria, this building will be built from repurposed plastic bottles and run on solar energy.

This project aims to tackle plastic waste pollution in Nigeria whilst providing a space for their students to be innovative.
