Kenya National STEM Learning Ecosystem
The proposed ecosystem will serve as the national STEM Learning Ecosystem and will be modelled alongside the 102 STEM schools that have been identified and equipped by the government through The Centre for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education in Africa (CEMASTEA). The Ecosystem will be used as a framework to galvanise partners from other sectors and also provide a coordinating mechanisms for STEM activities in the country. At the moment, there are different STEM initiatives by different players and there is urgent need for realignment. Young Scientist Kenya, working with CEMASTEA, a public education institution and whose mandate is to coordinate In-Service Education and Training (INSET) for practicing teachers of Mathematics and Science in Kenya will coordinate the efforts.
