One-Child Africa

2023 2023 Winner Project | Engage Science Engagement (Falling Walls Engage)

The Science Engagement project I am involved in is called One-Child Africa, and it aims to enhance the quality of STEM education for children in Rwanda, particularly young girls who come from marginalized backgrounds and lack access to good quality Science education.
Our project aims to empower children by developing their interest and passion for STEM, building their confidence in problem-solving, and encouraging them to use the skills they have learned to tackle societal issues. Our Engagement approach involves providing year-round STEM education programs that foster hands-on, applicable, and inspirational learning experiences in science to children aged 3-15. We also create educational resources, including STEM Boardgames, books, and posters, allowing children to engage with science outside the classroom.
The project involves working closely with schools, communities, and families to provide STEM education programs that are tailored to the needs of the target group. Our engagement approach involves using a variety of formats, content, methods, and tools to engage the children in STEM education, including workshops, exhibitions, competitions, and outreach programs.
