Summary

Project 1808's Science and Leadership Festival is an annual multi-day event meant to encourage interest in STEM fields (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics). More than 300 students and community members have attended our first two events and we are ready to grow and expand. With more funds, we will be able to provide equipment, supplies, and food for the event. With your support, we can inspire our students to become innovators and leaders!

Challenge

For many students in Sierra Leone, science and other STEM subjects are taught only from textbooks. However, subjects like biology, chemistry, ecology, and computer coding were meant to be learned in a hands-on manner. This is what makes science fun! This multi-day event filled with hands-on activity will inspire students to pursue careers in STEM.

Solution

By providing students and community members the opportunity to participate in engaging and educational activities they will be able to develop a better understanding of scientific concepts while sparking their interest in STEM-related fields. As students are inspired to continue their eduction in science, technology, engineering and math, we envision our "SciLeadFest" participants becoming leaders and innovators in their community.

Long-Term Impact

As more individuals are able to experience how fun science can be, more students will pursue careers in STEM fields. These individuals will not only be able to improve their job prospects, but they will also be able to assist in solving community problems while inspiring future generations to continue their education.
