If Nigeria must free itself from a monolithic economy, and make headway in innovative scientific and technological development, there is the compelling need to invest massively in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), so says the Director of Education, Trinity International College, Ofada Ogun State, Mrs. Funmi Aderinoye.
She spoke to The Guardian shortly after three of her students represented Nigeria at the recently concluded International Physics Olympiad (IPhO), in Switzerland, and at the international Chemistry Olympiad in Georgia in July 2016. The students are Ebuka Okoli, Amaechi Abuah, and Amam Oghenefejiro.
According to Aderinoye, “Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), is significant in the development of any nation. It is the bedrock of any meaningful or sustainable economic growth and development. This is because it enhances and entrenches in the system, capacity building that enforces the synergy of human and material resources to propel national development.
