We train STEM Secondary Teachers across Africa. Register below for our up-coming Workshop.
“Teachers are the biggest influence on our young population in Africa. If we do not train them effectively, it would be difficult to have a national impact and train the next generation contributory work force that will strengthen the continent’s economy through technology innovation.” – Dr.Unoma Okorafor, WAAW founder & president
WAAW Foundation understands that training STEM Teachers is a critical component in ensuring that African girls are trained in STEM. We focus on giving teachers GENDER-SENSITIVE STEM curriculum so teachers can help guide and recruit more girls in STEM and prevent gender bias and stereotypes in their classes.
For STEM secondary educators in Africa, we offer our engaging, rigorous teacher professional development model which provides tools to empower teachers and their students and transform the classroom into a collaboration space where STEM content comes to life.
We emphasize hands-on learning away from the blackboard, and Africa-focused integrated curriculum that helps teachers break down the rote memorization methodologies which are prevalent in the African educational system and which stifles creativity. We train http://www.honeytraveler.com/buy-kamagra/ teachers to develop cutting edge STEM curriculum for their classrooms using affordable locally available resources, train in digital literacy and employ technology and free online resources to enhance learning and engagement in their classrooms.
We equip Teachers to organize extra-curricular hands-on activities in STEM to grab their students’ interest at an early age (in secondary school) when career decisions are formed. We provide resources for continued learning for STEM teachers and facilitate communities and networks for peer support, mentoring and continued engagement. We also facilitate STEM competitions that motivate teachers to keep innovating in their classrooms.
Application is opened for our 2019 ICT/Computer science and STEM teachers training program. Follow us on our social media and sign-up on our mailing list to receive updates on our programs.
