Happiness and Favour who were our recepiants last year will continue to enjoy the scholarship for the upcoming year also.

We are happy to say the boys now also use the donated computers for there science classes.

The day was also marked by the visit to the school ( Mawo International School, Minna) by the Timeout4africa foundation team. Mr Harisson was present during one of the STEM girls computer class.

     Timeout4Africa Education and Sports Foundation continues to expose our STEM girls to STEM experiences.  In July 2019, Mawo School STEM Girls went on an excursion to Habees Water Bottling Company in Minna, Nigeria.
    Habees is a table water bottling company, located in the Minna Metropolis, with a capacity of processing about 100,000 bottles of water per day. The STEM Girls saw the water purifying process comprising the use of sand filter, carbon filter, and resin to remove particles and carbon from untreated water. The girls were in awe of the size of water tanks used in this process.
     While in the facility, the STEM Girls went to the blowing room where they saw prefab plastic put into a machine and blown into a mold in the shape of the bottle.  The process fasicnated the STEM Girls and two of the girls were given the opportiunty to use the machine to produce 2 bottles. The girls said they will never forget the experince at the bottling company and they learned about the importance of the water purifying process. 
     The STEM Girls also visited the production room where the water is further purified using UV light to kill  bacteria. Additionally, the girls observed the water bottles being filled with water by the filler and they watched the label shrinker machine apply the labels onto the bottles.  Once this process was complete,  the water was ready to be packaged for distribution. The entire process is automated which further ignited the girls' love for STEM. Precious Udekwe, one of the STEM girls on the trip stated, "It was an interesting and educative experience for me and other STEM girls. We saw for the first time ever, how  water we consume daily undergoes various purification processes to make it safe for drinking and keep us healthy."
  At the end of the excursion, the girls took group photographs with staff of the company expressing thanks for having them and gain such experience. The girls subsequently had lunch and returned to school. 
   Thank you very much for your donations. Without your suport, these types of experienes are not possible. Please continue to support us with donations during the year at www.Timeout4Africa.com.

Time Out 4Africa Youth Ambassador, Naomi Kolo, attended the Calvert County Public Schools Science and Engineering EXPO In Maryland, USA on February 23rd, 2017.  While at the EXPO.  Naomi was engaged in hands-on activities learning about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  The EXPO also exposed Naomi to options available for STEM classes, clubs, and careers.

Naomi stated, “The EXPO was fun and I loved all of the activities."  Naomi was also excited about learning new STEM activity ideas that can be shared with girls in Minna, Nigeria at the 2019 STEM EXPO, which will be held in Minna, Nigeria in November.  Exposing girls to STEM at an early age has been proven to keep them motivated and inspired to pursue STEM careers. 

Time Out 4Africa is proud to have participants like Naomi involved in STEM activities throughout the year.  Our mission is to inspire and motivate participants from our programs to stay engaged in educational activities throughout the year. We look forward to highlighting another Youth Ambassador in an upcoming update.

Time Out 4Africa hosted the 3rd Annual Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) EXPO for girls in Minna Nigeria on January 28, 2019.

The EXPO was designed to expose girls, ages 7-12 to the basics of STEM Education. Fourty-five girls were exposed to basic science and engineer activities. This highlight of this year’s EXPO was the engagement with the Keva Planks. The use of the Keva Planks promoted teamwork, creativity, and innovation, all skills needed by a STEM professionals. Twenty-nine of the girls in attendance were returning from the 2017 EXPO. Ten 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, girls were given a Time Out 4Africa 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.

We were happy to see the the two scholarship recipients of the STEM GiRLS SHINE Award, Favor and Esther present during the expo.  The Timeout 4Africa Foundation pays for school tuition, uniforms, bus transportation to school, sports wear and extra computer lessons for both of them.

Your donation made a difference and with your continued support, TimeOut4Africa can reach more girls in Minna, Nigeria, exposing them to the possiblies of STEM careers.
