Nigeria: Apwen to Hold Girl Child Educational Programme

The Association of Professional Women Engineers of Nigeria (APWEN) in partnership with Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) will on Saturday April 21, hold a girl child educational programme tagged 'Invent It, Build It.' The event, which will hold at the Sarki Central Primary School, Misau, Bauchi State is to ignite passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in young girls and to showcase the socio-economic value and application of engineering in our everyday life.

President of the association, Felicia Agubata, in a letter to The Guardian said the association is confident that early contact with the target group will spark off a desire and an ambition of the girl child to study the sciences and pursue engineering as a profession. As the girls begin to imagine great careers in engineering and diligently demonstrate passion and with the right guidance, the sky will be their limit.

APWEN's role is to mentor, point the way forward and partner with the participants to midwife their careers by providing learning aids, seminars, scholarships and inspiration. During the event, experiment will be performed by the pupils with guidance from APWEN members.along with an interactive/sensitization session for parents, guardians and teachers to inspire positive attitude and support for females in the pursuit of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
