Millennium Fellowship Project: Edumobile
Edumobile: The essence of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and entrepreneurship in our lives, now more than ever, can be extremely difficult to ignore. These tools drive what has come to be known as the 4th industrial revolution and their significance, will last for years to come.
Despite the great revolution, a large population of the future generation in Ghana are oblivious to the world of STEM, Entrepreneurship and their practicalities.
This seems elusive to a majority of young students as they keep learning by rote memorization of concepts and are tested by how well they can remember the formulas and definitions they learnt.
Edumobile is a mobile STEM entrepreneurship outreach focused on making STEM education practical and equipping students in Ghana with entrepreneurial skills as well.
Edumobile is literally an on-wheel organization that spreads the good news of practical STEM Education, Entrepreneurship and Innovation right from one school to the other, reaching future generations in every corner and leaving no one behind.
