Mark Gelfand helps award winners of the National Science, Engineering and Robotics Fair
STEM Synergy has helped to make STEM and virtual computing centers, labs, and museums more accessible across Ethiopia, the Ethiopian Herald reported last week.
“STEM Synergy … has been complementing the government’s ongoing efforts to bring about transformation in science and technology,” the article said, noting how these efforts are aimed at developing the culture of science and technology and therefore improve competitiveness.
One example of the collaboration between STEM Synergy and the Ethiopian government, along with other NGOs, is the Ethiopian National Science, Engineering and Robotics Fair, taking place over the last week. Innovations developed by 120 students from across Ethiopia are being recognized at this fair, which highlights the growing relevance of a strong education in STEM subjects for young people.
STEM Synergy has played an important role in providing access to STEM centers around the country.”We are working with almost all universities and states to realize the synergy we are aspiring,” Mark I. Gelfand, STEM Synergy’s founder, told the Ethiopian Herald.
