We are developing the science self-efficacy of young people

We are doing this by exposing them to hands-on STEM activities and 21st century digital literacy skills.

This project addresses the stereotypical views young people hold about science and scientists, the gendered delivery of science and digital education, in formal learning environments and the narrow aspirations evident among young people. It is being carried out through carefully developed materials, international good practice and research-informed approach to STEM and Digital education

The EkitiDIGISTEM project will work with:

Teacher training colleges
to develop digital literacy modules for in-training teachers
Primary schools
to deliver curriculum-related science activities
Teachers
to understand challenges to integrating and adopting practical science and digital literacy
Government
to influence and create educational policies that will support and enhance young people’s practical science experience

Some pictures from past projects

We work with some of the brightest minds

The ekitiDigistem project is an initiative of the Ekiti State Government, sponsored by the World Bank and delivered by STEMRES Learning Initiative stem.ng.

It is receiving management support from Ekiti State University, Nigeria and research and evaluation support from the digital learning laboratory, at Northumbria University United Kingdom.

Enough talk, would you want us in your school? Do you want to know how to get started with digital literacy and practical science?
