Many developed countries could attribute their development in large part to the genius and hard work of their scientists, engineers and innovators. In a world that is becoming increasingly complex and tech, where success is driven not only by what you claim to know but by what you can do with what you know. It is more important than ever for our youths to be equipped with knowledge that promotes logical and analytical thinking on how to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidences and make sense of information while explaining technical relationships. These are the kind of skills that students learn by being a part of the STEAM Club (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
The STEAM Club in secondary schools focus on achieving the above stated capacity in students through interaction with learnings, concepts, skills, hands-on modeling of real-world devices, processes, which sparks imagination, questioning, problem solving, collaboration and hands on activities while they address real life issues. They are empowered to take initiative and they progress to make the best of resources around them.
In this process, they are being enhanced to chart a career for themselves in the STEM education in the nearest future as they progress, leading to our children becoming African Michael Faraday and Thomas Edison while able to favorably compete with their contemporaries around the globe.
In the course of The STEAM Club activities in the secondary schools, children have been privileged to be exposed to various modern day technologies like the Renewable Energy e.g. Hydropower, Solar Power, Wind Power etc., Electronic Circuit Board, Hydraulics Arm(Harness the fluid pressure to perform heavy duties), Robotics, Electric Circuit Board ECB, Concept of Polymer Science, Electrolysis, Sunburst Mirror wall deco, Understanding circuitry and resistors and many more just to mention a few.
