Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Following a successful and ambitious STEM event for 420 Jamaican schoolchildren which was was held in March 2018 in Jamaica and supported by JET-UK in partnership with Jamaica High Commissioner, UK. The workshop covers 10 primary schools and 4 high schools in the Jamaican cities and towns of Kingston, St Andrew, St Catherine and St Elizabeth. The event was the STEM Creative Futures Jamaica' Workshop. The students were mostly from Grades 5 & 6 but 70 were in high school Grade 10. This inspired us to start Creative Future@Africa by spreading the workshop all over Africa countries, the first of which will be Nigeria in August 2018 and hence the reason we are asking for your support.
Creative Futures - Nigeria is a 3 days-long event. It is designed to inspire pupils in STEM. It aims to show students their potential and encourage them to learn about STEM subjects, and perceive higher education as something they would want. The framework for the event is that it was part of Science and Engineering Taster Week, hence the ability to find audiences in so many locations and in such numbers.
The structure of the event is fixed. “Creative Futures: Achieving Your Potential” suits students aged 9-11 years. It includes the presenters acting as role models, mentors and inspirational speakers. The focus of the student experience is upon helping the pupils to use their FOUR-C thinking: Critical thinking in order to work Collaboratively and Communicate their Creativity while working in a team (4Cs).
