ExxonMobil Foundation Collaborates with JA Africa on $300,000 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Programme



The ExxonMobil Foundation and JA Africa, have launched the "ExxonMobil STEM Africa” initiative, a $300,000 programme to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) for approximately 3,000 African students across Nigeria, Namibia, Angola and Mozambique.

According to APO Group, the programme, will prepare middle and high school students for future STEM careers, through immersive quizzes and hands-on experiences at Innovation Camps.

 

Fresh Angle International, understands that the camps, delivered by JA Africa, will teach new approaches to addressing STEM-related challenges.

“Growing students’ STEM skills is key in developing the next generation of problem solvers across Africa,” ExxonMobil Foundation President Alvin Abraham, said. “We’re excited to see how these young minds apply what they’ve learned through our programme.”

Teams who present the best STEM solutions will represent their countries at a major regional industry conference in Cape Town, South Africa.

 

Students will gain cross-cultural exposure, learn about energy from a global perspective and showcase their ideas while connecting with industry leaders.

“In an era where technology and innovation propel the global economy forward, Africa's position at the forefront of technological advancements is crucial for maintaining competitiveness and sustainable development,” said JA Africa President and CEO Simi Nwogugu. “We are grateful to the ExxonMobil Foundation for this partnership to nurture STEM competencies to shape Africa's future."
