Kepler-x is a three (3) year observatory program that addresses vital economic issues through disruptive teaching methods. It uses project-based learning, mentoring and hackathons that would allow students to unleash their creativity.
Each year, the United States invests billions in STEM education and workforce development, knowing that over 70% of their domestic and international jobs will require those core skills: science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Africa does not have a robust strategic plan on STEM policies, or even a clear framework for implementing them. It is not even clear if some national leaders understand their importance or meanings. This outsourcing of infrastructure is destroying the ability of African governments to invest in STEM skills for the future. We want to have smooth roads in Lagos, Lusaka, Nairobi and Maputo, but if we do not train our people in the right skills we will lose out as a continent.Marieme Jamme, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of SpotOne Global Solutions
