Africa’s future lies in the hands of its youth. With productivity disparities evident across regions, there’s a critical need to equip our children with the skills that will drive innovation and solve local challenges. Enter STEM Africa Fest 2024—a transformative event dedicated to empowering over 7,000 children across Lagos and Abuja with crucial STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) skills.

STEM education isn’t just about preparing for the future; it’s about shaping it. In today’s rapidly evolving world, proficiency in STEM disciplines is indispensable for career success and groundbreaking innovation. STEM Africa Fest stands as a beacon of opportunity, offering children and youth hands-on experiences in AI, Machine Learning, Robotics, Coding, and more.

Since its inception in 2021, this unique STEM learning festival has impacted over 12,000 children, parents, and educators, igniting curiosity and fostering a passion for STEM across communities. This year the target is to impact over 7,000 attendees across Lagos and Abuja. This year’s theme: “Igniting Change through CleanTech and STEAM,” underscores the festival’s commitment to sustainable innovation and technological advancement.

Here is what some parents had to say about the last event. Oluwkemisola Eesuola, remarked, “I was really impressed by the various hands-on STEM activities my children could engage in at the event. This should really be a long weekend bootcamp rather than a day’s event.”

Kola Abayomi, shared, “STEM Fest is really the best! My son had the privilege of building a game by himself at one of the STEAM Labs which was shared on his mother’s device. It was really a proud moment for me as a parent.”

This year, the festival returns with even greater ambition, set to ignite change through CleanTech and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics).

Mark your calendars: Abuja hosts STEM Africa Fest on July 13th at Rainbow Marque Garki, followed by Lagos at the prestigious Landmark Center in Oniru on July 20th, 2024. Expect immersive STEM labs, inspiring career talks from industry leaders, and engaging exhibitions.
