Role model visit is a club enrichment program which will offer 600 pupils in 20 public schools in Eastern and Greater Accra Region of Ghana the opportunity to interact with professionals from STEM fields, learn about career options in STEM , socially accepted STEM applications, benefits of STEM so that they can develop their aspirations and achieve higher potentials for a better community and the world at large.
About 50% public school pupils perceive that STEM is a complex subject which has limited career opportunities . This can be seen in the statistics for Junior high schools pupils who select STEM as a course at the Senior high Schools or pursue STEM as a career. This project will change the perception of more than 600 pupils in the basic schools.
Role models will provide academic and career guidance in STEM for pupils in Primary 4 to JHS 3. Pupils will become aware of socially responsible and acceptable application which contributes to community development. Pupils will share the knowledge gained with their peers and the community at large.
This project will educate more than 600 pupils to pursue STEM at the Secondary level for them to develop their aspirations and achievements in their community and the world.
