The Lagos state government and Getbundi education technology company has commissioned a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (stem) laboratory at Wesley Girls Senior Secondary School, Yaba, Lagos.
The stem laboratory is the pilot phase of an ongoing partnership between the Lagos state government and Getbundi that would see the deployment of Getbundi’s education technology platform across schools in the state.
Special assistant on education to the Governor Of Lagos State, Adetola Salau, while commissioning the center spoke on the importance of stem education, saying it helps to prepare students for the workforce and equips them with the skills needed to excel in a rapidly-changing, technology-driven society.
She said the Getbundi offering is in line with the Steamup Lagos Project whose goal is to infuse the ideals of a globally unified steam curriculum, making learning fun, accessible, sustainable, relatable to learners, while inculcating in them critical thinking ability, problem identification and solving skills, collaboration and creativity in designing solutions to identified challenges in society.
She said by virtue of the partnership, the Getbundi is helping to provide students with real-world experience and help them to develop the skills that are in demand in the job market with the donation of a steam lab equipped with the latest equipment and software.
