Ghana Science and Technology Explorer Prize

The Ghana Science and Tech Explorer Challenge Prize (GSTEP) excites, encourages and supports Junior High School (JHS) students (11-16) and teachers in Ghana to develop practical Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM) skills and products that benefit local communities. 

During this 3-year programme, we will be working with 20,000 Junior High School (JHS) students– as well as teachers, schools and communities  in the Greater Accra and Ashanti regions – to encourage practical learning and the development of STEM and ICT skills through a series of challenge prizes.  

The Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service in collaboration with DreamOval Foundation, Foundervine, Nesta Challenges, MEST and Dext Technologies have embarked on a journey to facilitate the generation of STEM ideas within the youth of Ghana. With the aim of cultivating them into enterprising products and solutions to address community issues.

Under the theme “Understanding Ghana’s STEM and Entrepreneurship Agenda and its impact on education in the 21st century”. This programme will be an opportunity to understand and align with the Government's plan for STEM education and how the private sector and other stakeholders can support Government's effort at driving the STEM agenda.

Meet the bright young people helping us shape the GSTEP Programme

How can you help?

We are looking for speakers and mentors who have expertise within the areas of STEM and entrepreneurship, who can run workshops in their area of expertise for our Youth Ambassadors, if this is you, get intouch.

 

Change is never as impactful when it is done in silos, that is why we are leaning on the experts within the STEM ecosystem to join the conversations and start putting in the action. We are looking to partner up with other companies within the private sector who can provide Financial and non-financial support to the GSTEP programme as whole. The future of the Ghanaian nation is in the hands of
us all and we have a responsibility to develop a generation that can build a nation that we all can be proud of.
