Hello and thank you from our STEM girls
Time Out 4Africa hosted the 4th Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) EXPO for girls in Minna Nigeria. The EXPO was designed to expose girls, ages 7-10, to the basics of STEM Education. Thirty-five girls were exposed to basic science experiments, coding through the use of code.org, robotics through the use of code and go mouse sets. Twenty-five of the girls that attended the EXPO where returning from the 2019 EXPO. Twelve of those girls stated that the STEM EXPO was the first time that they were exposed to STEM education. They were so excited!
Funds donated to Time Out 4Africa’s STEM Camp in Minna were used to purchase the STEM supplies used at the camp. Funds were also used to purchase drinks and snacks that were provided at the event. Additionally,all the girls were given a Time Out 4Africa 10 anniversary bookbag for school supplies .
Girls at the EXPO received information on STEM careers and they were encouraged to think about the possibilities of a STEM career opportunity. The girls expressed excitement about engaging in the STEM activities and learning about STEM careers
