“As a company deeply rooted in Africa, we recognise the critical role that STEM education plays in driving innovation, economic growth, and sustainable development across the continent,” Sher added.

The executives conducted interactive sessions with the students, highlighting real-world applications of STEM disciplines and sharing personal anecdotes to inspire and motivate the students.

Through engaging presentations and discussions, they emphasised the significance of developing problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and creativity, all of which are essential attributes for success in STEM fields.
