What is STEM?
STEM is the acronym used to refer to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics subjects. STEM Synergy emphasizes a hands-on approach to the application of STEM concepts that students learn during class time. Students solidify what they learn by designing their own experiments in labs but we emphasize extracurricular learning that will take kids off campus and into the community.
How We Do It
We do our work from the ground up and are able to extend our reach by building on established community partnerships. We make a difference by continuing to stimulate our students’s curiosity and love for STEM subjects outside of the classroom.
We're Stronger Together
By working with local communities, government institutions, and nongovernmental organizations dedicated to the sustainable growth of developing nations we’ve been able to bring STEM education to students across Ethiopia, Israel, Kurdistan, South Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda and Kenya. It is through continued partnership that we hope to build more STEM centers, create better access to computing resources, science museums and fairs, and collaborate on new university outreach programs in communities all over the world.
Foka Science and Engineering STEM Center
Foka STEM Center gives students of all ages access to high-quality STEM education in multiple ways and continues to be a source of inspiration for new programs and initiatives throughout Ethiopia by providing diverse experiential learning opportunities.
Science Museum at Addis Ababa Science Technology University
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.
Ethiopian National Science
Engineering and Robotics Fair
This annual event highlights the growing relevance of a strong education in STEM subjects for youth and the opportunity to cement a path forward for developing communities to peaceful prosperity.
