EDUCATION THAT SOLVES PROBLEMS!

Science and Education ought to solve our problems, sharpen our innovative skills to think creatively, add value to local resources around us as to make new products, boost industrialization and advance indigenous technology, then Africa will truly become self reliant!

 

Have you ever thought of this: we have over 300 Universities & Polytechnics in Nigeria, how come we still import almost everything including toothpicks? Why do we continue to depend on foreign products and debts to survive?

 

The only way to get it right is to start paying attention to practical science and innovation from our elementary and secondary schools! Starting from Osun, our High Schools Science & Innovation Festival will engage thousands of high school students and young innovators from next year.
