It’s Time to STEM UP…
Everything rises and falls on EDUCATION. We cannot lead a quality of life beyond our collective intellectual abilities. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are at the forefront of Economic Growth.
SCIENCE IGNITE AFRICA delivers practical STEM learning that is fortified by providing indigenous technological solutions to real life problems.PARTNER WITH US
More than 7 out of 10 Nigerians are willing to leave their country for Europe, America or Asia. Independent studies have shown that the quest for a better pay, access to good healthcare and social ammenities are fundamental reasons many Nigerian youths are despirate about emigrating.
As of 2015, most of the global poor live in sub-Saharan Africa . The average poverty rate for sub-Saharan Africa stands at about 41 percent, and of the world’s 28 poorest countries, 27 are in sub-Saharan Africa all with a poverty rate above 30 percent.
Almost 60% of children in sub-Saharan Africa between the ages of 15 and 17 are not in school. Unfortunately, less than 30% of those in school get quality education and less than 40% of Graduates have good jobs.

Our Key Focus SDGs
In line with the sustainable development goals, we design and develop all our projects, activities and partnerships to achieve these goals in Africa. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) applications are imperative to the acievement of the SDGs.
QUALITY EDUCATION SDG 4
We empower children, teens and youths with Practical Solution-Oriented STEM Learning. Our Memory training classes ensure aid lifelong learning opportunities.
INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASRTUCTURE SDG 9
Industrialization and nnovation are results of scientific and technological advancements. We train youngsters to be innovative and develop products that can be commercialised.
AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY SDG 7
Access to Electrical Power is mitigated by underdevelopment in subsaharan Africa. Taking advantage of the climate in this region remains a critical step towards a breakthrough.
GENDER EQUALITY SDG 5
Human Capacity Development and STEM Education are necessary ingredients that to reduce discrimination against women. Educating the Girl Child in STEM disciplines is fundamental step towards achieving gender equality.
END POVERTY, HUNGER AND UNEMPLOYMENT SDGS 1,2 & 8
We develop technological solutions to facilitate Agricultural Production and systems to prevent food wastage, Application of Biotecnology in crop production can help to increasecrop yield and resistance to diseases.
ENVIRONMENT AND CONSERVATION SDGs 6,12,13,14&15.
We build a culture of conservation and replenishment into the upcoming generation of Africans. Climatic changes and environmental degradation are partly due to continuous deprivation of nature’s gifts without replenishment.
For Africa to be competitive in the global market, improve its economy and the overall well-being of its citizenry, a deliberate investment in science and technology is well overdue. The best way to invest in science and technology is by spurring up the citizenry’s interest in science and technology.
Science Ignite Africa will enhance the impact of science education by giving students, children and youths the opportunity to apply the knowledge of science which they have learnt in school to solve real life problems or tasks laid before them. This initiative will not only facilitate learning by solving problems in the immediate environment, but will also expose these young minds to some scientific problems facing the world as a whole and provide them with modern techniques and tools employed in other areas of the world to solve similar challenges thereby developing young scientists with problem-solving skills which Africa desperately needs
