    Why STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)?

    We Need STEM:
    The demand for skilled Afrikans in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) is closely linked to global competitiveness. How can Afrikans inspire the next generation to solve problems within the community without promoting STEM education?

    The lack of Afrikans entering STEM fields presents additional challenges, but using creativity and innovation to address these challenges is critical to achieving liberation.
    Not enough Afrikan people are being introduced, educated or inspired about STEM education. Instead, formal education seems to be sapping the interest of young people, particularly Afrikan peoples, away from the STEM fields.

    Importance of STEM:
    In the earliest of civilizations (What is now know as Ethiopia and surrounding countries), scientific and technological innovations were a part of our culture and legacy. Today, STEM fields have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of a computerized world. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, Afrikans need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.
    Technology is pervasive in almost every aspect of daily life, and as the workplace changes, STEM knowledge and skills grow in importance for a variety of people (not just for mathematicians and scientists).
    Stereotypes about Afrikan abilities and their role in society often keep us only pursuing careers in entertainment and athletics.

    What You Can Do:
    Whether you are a parent, student, elder, or Afrikan centered organization, you can get involved. You’re taking the first step by reading this message. If you’re a parent, make sure the youth are developing skills that encompass STEM fields and not just for the purpose of going to college and finding a job but to stimulate Afrikan centered thinking that can contribute to nation building. Students, search for STEM classes and curriculums, especially when considering college programs. Elders, encourage the Afrikan family with stories of skill/trade development that contributed to the modern advancements of today. Afrikan centered organization, start using lessons from our history to repurpose STEM into daily activities.

    All the more reason why we need our own focus on "education".
