    I used to say that physics is hard and not for women but now I have the idea how it’s helpful and I will do it. I think it had changed my mind and I am going to work hard. The event was awesome and what I wish is that it could be there every year or annually

    - Faith Indekhwa from Ruai Secondary School

    Technological gaps will keep on growing between developed and developing countries as long as new approaches are not adopted in the teaching of STEM in primary and secondary schools. Most Kenyan secondary schools laboratories are ill- equipped for students to carry out experiments; thus they perceive sciences as dull, theoretical and abstract. They fail to relate what they are taught with its application in the real world. Science will remain an abstract pursuit to learners so long as they are not exposed to its real application in their daily lives. Technology will never be appropriate if students are not afforded means of contextualizing it –this should earnestly begin in our laboratories.
