Ghana’s educational system, as known by the majority of people, is more theory-based than practically oriented. This is a contributing factor to the low development of the country.

Most young students have creative and innovative practical ideas that can be exploited to help improve the country’s productivity, but they get little or no opportunity to express these initiatives.

DreamOval Foundation in partnership with Challenge Works, Foundervine, MEST Africa, and DEXT Technology, has collaborated to promote STEM education through the Ghana Science and Tech Explorer Prize (GSTEP).

It aims at unraveling the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematical (STEM) skills of junior high school students.

The competition, which has already begun, involves about 50 Junior High Schools from the northern and southern sectors of the country, who are to compete and produce technological solutions.

The participants are expected to transform their creative ideas into long-lasting solutions to help solve Ghana’s developmental problems.
