Alpha Beta begins the STEM35 Legacy Project

Alpha Beta begins the STEM35 Legacy Project.

A project to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education at the basic and junior high school levels in Accra’s Dansoman municipality has been inaugurated.

The Alpha Beta School began the STEM35 Legacy Project as part of its attempts to develop a STEM Centre of Excellence.

With a goal of earning $350,000, the project’s first phase successfully renovated its science labs, modernised its IT facilities, and added a physical science hub.

Dr Naomi Adjepong, Director of the School, said this at the school’s annual Founders’ Day celebration and project launch in Accra last Friday.

The Community engagement

Dr. Adjepong noted that the project modifications would provide cutting-edge STEM education facilities for both Alpha Beta students and the local community.

“The school has also introduced innovative STEM-related programmes which include the launching of STEMROBO (Coding, Robotics, and AI) as a weekly subject for students in Years one – nine, and the STEM Champions programme, a 10-week STEM immersion initiative,” she went on to say.

The programming, she explained, would include practical workshops, guest speaker sessions, and industrial excursions for kids at the school and in the community.

“The STEM35 Legacy Project extends beyond the school walls, exemplified by successful partnerships with local public schools.”

“Alpha Beta hosted 140 JHS students from the AME Zion School for practical sessions in the science lab, aiding their understanding of scientific concept,” she went on to say.

Dr. Adjepong stated that the continuing STEM Champions Programme for females in JHS two and three was another notable community project spearheaded by the school.

The Way forward.

The initiative, she added, was designed to include additional technology enhancements such as upgraded Internet connectivity and the construction of an Innovation Lab and Maker Space this year to improve the project.
