About the School

ThinkYoung STEM School is a 6-week programme designed to train youth in demand-driven STEM skills and help them pursue a higher education path in specific STEM subjects in Ethiopia.

 

STEM education is a key pillar of 21st-century skills development. Aspiring to become a middle-income country by 2025, Ethiopia has registered significant economic growth in the past ten years. To sustain its current growth, the government has focused on tackling skills gaps and mismatches, specifically boosting STEM education and employment.

 

In partnership, Boeing and Ethiopian Airlines are working to develop two STEM education programs with the objective of increasing the talent pipeline for the aviation industry in Ethiopia. 

 

ThinkYoung STEM school will have two different programmes running in parallel. One dedicated to upskilling students and the other dedicated to upskilling teachers across the country.

Teacher Internship Programme
17th July - August 25th 2023

The Student Internship Programme is a 6-week programme focused on introducing students from different regions in Ethiopia to the basics of coding and computers. Learning and understanding these foundations is key to developing an appreciation of how things work and how to use STEM subjects in order to solve problems in a logical and creative way.

The Teacher Training Program is focused on equipping teachers from different regions in Ethiopia with STEM skills to educate their students in STEM subjects. Educating teachers is critical to achieving better STEM pedagogy throughout education. This program will introduce teachers to STEM subjects and various teaching techniques that will support them in delivering the training to their students.
