The Afro Science Network
C hallenged by the lack of STEM information and news in the media space in Africa, we have designed a platform to address this shortfall. We are a team of scientists and engineers interested in communicating the world of STEM to ordinary people and mainstreaming research in STEM for development in Africa.
Our vision is to be the premier voice and platform for works of scientists of African origin, to become the hub for the promotion of scientific knowledge and its applications in various settings across Africa to support socioeconomic development on the continent.
To accomplish this, AfroScience Network has the following objectives:1. To collate the stories and experiences of African scientists across the world, make them publicly available for the promotion, recognition and appreciation of African scientists
2. To demystify STEM and encourage young African students to venture into this area of study and to offer them relevant support in their endeavor.
3. To create a database of indigenous African scientific knowledge and promote it to dispel the notion of the non-African nature of science.
4. To make scientific knowledge and applications readily available in all parts of Africa and to all Africans through audiovisual materials in various languages on the continents
5. To collaborate with all ethical organizations which promote and disseminate STEM knowledge, especially for the benefit of Africans.
