STEM Synergy at work:  Some examples

Foka STEM Center

Foka STEM Center gives students of all ages access to high-quality STEM education and continues to be a source of inspiration for new programs and initiatives throughout Ethiopia by providing diverse experiential learning opportunities.

STEM Synergy conceived of, designed, built, and supports Foka and 17 more STEM Centers in East Africa.

Addis Ababa Science Museum

Located on the campus of Addis Ababa Science Technology University (AASTU), the Science Museum at Addis Ababa Science and Technology University (AASM) offers access to interactive exhibits that encourage visitors to engage independently with both familiar and novel subject matter. This solidifies previously gained knowledge while inspiring visitors young and old to explore unfamiliar topics more readily.

STEM Synergy conceived of, designed, and built this facility, along with 2 more under construction.

Ethiopian National Science Fair

This event held every year on World Science Day highlights the growing STEM reach throughout the vast nation, bringing together students from all regions.

STEM Synergy coordinates the many local science fairs, then arranges the logistics to bring the local winning students&projects to the National science fair.
