The long awaited summer holiday is just some weeks away and primary & secondary school children in Nigeria will have approximately a month and a week to ease themselves off class work and home work.
Decades past, holiday has always been a time when children visit grandparents in their home town or take a trip to spend time with their loved ones abroad. It is also a time school children take a break from the daily 8am – 2pm lecture hours in school and the task to meet up with class work and home work.
It is widely accepted that not all is taught in the classroom. It is however necessary for parents to ensure they locate a summer camp near them and enroll their kids to learn hands-on practical skills in STEM and renewable energy. With this, the country will have future problem solvers and innovators.
To this end, WAAW Foundation presents list of summer camps that engage students in STEM in Nigeria.
