Etisalat Nigeria supported the Working to Advance STEM Education for African Women (WAAW) Foundation on the occasion of its 2013 Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Camp for 30 high school girls aged between 13 and 17 years.

Titled ‘Robotics and Renewable Energy for Africa’, the workshop which took place on Aug. 03, at the Laureates College, Lagos,  was facilitated by some Nigerian and American women, and it allowed the girls to experience hands-on activities, tutorials and experiments.


The founder of WAAW Foundation, Dr. Unoma Okorafor, said the learning objective of the STEM camp was to ensure that girls thought of science and technology as tools that could help them solve real problems in their communities.

 “The focus is to encourage our girls to look around and use locally available materials for innovation”, she said.

The facilitators included a special education teacher from Honors Academy School in Texas, Ebele Agu; Associate Professor of Physics and STEM Education at St. Catherine University in Minnesota, Dr. Kaye Smith and Mechanical Engineer from St. Thomas University in Minnesota, Frances Van Sloun.
