Cameroon hosts 4th STEM Africa International Conference

The fourth edition of the International Conference on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics for Africa kicks off today Tuesday 30th May. The conference dubbed STEM-Africa is held in Yaoundé under the patronage of the president of La Republique.

The event which spans three days is an initiative of the University of Michigan (USA) and the Ministry of Scientific Research and Innovation in collaboration with the Ministry of Higher Education.

STEM handles educational policies in a bit to improve competitiveness in science and technology development, with the intention of making people learn to be creators, innovators, inventors… Quality science, technology, engineering and mathematics education for all peoples is the main driving force behind the existence of STEM.

The theme of this year’s edition of the event is STEM for Africa-US Frontiers in Science.

Cameroon seems to be hosting a lot of international events at a time when the socio-political and educational atmosphere looks pretty unstable. With the Anglophone Problem in West Cameroon, upcoming elections coupled with the Boko Haram headache in the northern part of the nation, there is every indication that the country is not comfortable.
