Ghana’s Youth Robotics Team Prepares to Compete in Singapore

The team will be at FIRST Global, an annual Olympic-style international robotics competition that brings together youth from all around the world to share their passion for STEM.  The competition will be held at the Singapore EXPO and will highlight the role of hydrogen in sustainable energy and the reduced carbon future. This year the Ghanaian team is composed of 5 students from the Achimota Senior High School located in Accra, Ghana who have been mentored by STEMbees, a pioneering organization  promoting STEM education among African women. STEMbees is leading a fundraising campaign for financial assistance and support from companies and individuals who share a passion for innovation, education, and empowering young women in the field of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to raise approximately $30,000 needed for the trip which include flights and accommodations for the team and two mentors/coaches.
