EcoSTEM Programme

The EcoSTEM programme seeks to enhance practical STEM and environmental sustainability education across the EduSpots network communities and beyond.

All our programmes are created by our local team, using resources that can be found in rural communities low-cost or recycled, with ideas relating to local Ghanaian environments and lives, also linking to the national curriculum.

Each month, we launch a monthly challenge with our network of EcoSTEM clubs which engages students in JHS to work as a team to conduct some form of scientific experiment or activity.
