For years, African governments, Educators and parents have raised concerns about the lack of practical science education at the basic level. In the 21st Century,STEM education presents greater opportunities for personal and socioeconomic development. This is particularly true for Africa. However, for millions of students, scalable, portable and affordable solutions that bring quality practical science education to the masses are woefully lacking, thereby leading to a lack of science experience beyond the blackboard and a resultant lack of understanding of scientific concepts and low interest in science. The science set solves this by bringing one-on-one science lab experiences to students in an effective and safe way.
The science set is an affordable,portable, and effective, practical toolbox (dimension) that provides practical experiential science education for students. It currently contains 46+ components that can help students perform 26+ experiments stipulated in their curriculum. The core users of the science set are basic education students across Africa and parts of the developing world starting from Ghana. The market is divided into private schools and government schools. However, our key customers are the parents of students, non-governmental institutions, schools, companies and the government. Currently, there are about 144million basic students across sub Saharan Africa.
The innovation can be sustained by consistent product development with required investments to help scale it up. Currently, the science set has been adapted in various countries across the globe and can be used both in every certain be it the home or school of the user.
