The Media Space is saturated by entertainers as nudity is being celebrated above intellectualism, patroitism and innovations. This has eroded our moral values resulting in the rise of fraud, greed, criminalities, insecurities and over dependence on foreign help.

The remote cause remains that the ‘intellectuals’ were not engaging, experienced, determined enough to dominate the media especially online platforms with valuable contents.

AdasiScience was intentional about addressing this by training 100 African Scientists & Educators (media enthusiasts) in a 2-day Media Booth Camp in January 2021. This was followed by 3 months intensive training in digital marketing, content management and science communications.
