In partnership with ENYO Retail and Supply, CCHub’s CEO, Bosun Tijani has launched a Kids Creativity Play Space in Lagos. Dubbed the STEMCafe (i.e Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics Cafe), the centre is created to ensure that kids are exposed to the world of STEM in a fun and interactive way.
The centre is located in Lekki, within ENYO Petrol Station (behind Nike Art Gallery). It would provide a non-linear learning structure for kids and teenagers between the ages of 5 -18 years old. At the Cafe, young ones would get to engage in various activities that will help them develop lifelong learning and interest in STEM.
The centre utilises several tools to effectively teach the kids. These tools include: digital labs, coding challenges, robotics kits, 3D printers, physical computing with Arduino, computer games, child-friendly sci-fi movies/animations and Short videos on emerging technologies. The children learn under the tutelage of trained STEM educators.
From robotics to artificial intelligence, there has been a rapid flux of new technologies around the world recently. These technologies will certainly define the future. Countries with very little investments in developing human capacity in science and technology will not fare well.
Bosun Tijani of CCHUB recognises this, hence the establishment of an innovative centre like this.
“Exposing our young people to STEM at an early age is one sure way of building a generation of innovators and thinkers who will sustain and strengthen the evolving position of Africa in the world. I am extremely excited to once again contribute to building a fun platform that will build a new generation of leaders for science and technology across Africa through the STEMCafe.”Bosun Tijani, CEO, Co-Creation Hub
And of course, the CCHUB’s boss is not the only one piloting this project. The space is in partnership with ENYO Retail and Supply which also believes in “creating a conducive learning environment for young people, specifically learning around science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.”
However the centre is not free. Interested members would be required to pay a ₦5,000 annual fee. This fee covers the various packages that will be offered at STEMCafe. The space is also open from 12:00 PM—6:00 PM on Monday to Friday , 10:00 AM—6:00 PM on Saturdays and 2:00PM—6:00PM on Sundays.
STEMCafe also aims to collaborate with more organizations in creating spaces that will give kids the interactive experience needed to promote creativity and innovation.
