Are you a secondary school student interested in becoming part of the rapidly growing movement to improve Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Learning in Tanzania? Here is an opportunity to become one of the participants of the Second Annual STEM Youth Boot Camp that will take place in the first week of January 2017.
International Girls in ICT Day is an initiative backed by all ITU Member States in ITU Plenipotentiary Resolution 70 (Rev. Busan, 2014). It aims at creating a global environment that empowers and encourages girls and young women to consider careers in the growing field of information and communication technologies (ICTs).
This was the first of many boot camps in STEM that will be organised with Projekt Inspire in partnership with Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology (NM-AIST) in Arusha and many other Stakeholders including Tanzania STEM Initiative.
The number of students pursuing STEM education in tertiary institution has been dropping from 34% in 2004 to 14% in 2012. Due to this, Inspire STEM has decided to organize a STEM Boot Camp for Secondary School Students in Tanzania in order to promote STEM education and participation amongst Tanzanian youth.
