STEMBees Fundraises for Ghanaian Teens to Compete in International Robotics Competition
Founded by three MEST alumnae in 2014, STEMBees is a nonprofit focused on encouraging and mentoring more young African women to pursue careers in STEM, with a goal of minimizing the current gender gap. Together, they are working to “build a community of women in STEM – a SiSTEM”.
This year five science students from Wesley Girls’ High School under the mentorship of STEMBees have been selected to represent Ghana at the FIRST Global Challenge in Mexico City, Mexico from August 15th to 18th. This international robotics challenge is organized annually to ignite passion for STEM among youth throughout the world, with one team from every nation invited to participate.
In order for them to attend, the STEMBees team and the participants are asking for support through an online fundraiser.
The team comprises 5 members namely; Dillys Annan, Eyram Nud-Duwor, Enam Dartey, Lizette Osafo and Foriwaa Abu-Sakyi.
