Time Out 4Africa hosted a 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-two girls were exposed to basic science experiments, coding through the use of code.org, robotics through the use of code and go mouse sets, and engineering through the use of Legos. For many of the girls, it was their first time being 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 at the end of the event.

Girls at the EXPO received information on STEM careers and they were encouraged to think about the possibilities of a STEM career opportunities.  By the end of the EXPO, the girls were able to tell you the meaning of the STEM acronym, expressed excited about engaging in the STEM activities, and were able to identity STEM careers.

Nema, an 8 years old attendee at the EXPO, stated that it was her first time seeing Legos.  She was excited to see how the Legos connected and was thrilled see the Lego design come together.  Nema said that the LEGO Station was her favorite station at the STEM EXPO.  Another attendee stated that she loved the code and go mouse set and was excited to see the mouse move all by itself!

Your donation made a difference and with your continued support, Time Out 4Africa can reach out to more girls in Minna, Nigeria, exposing them to the possiblies of STEM careers.
