The Ethiopian NGO STEM Synergy, in cooperation with the Ethiopian National Commission for UNESCO, Ministry of Education and UNESCO Addis Ababa Liaison Office with the African UNION and UNECA, are jointly organizing an event to celebrate the World Science Day for Peace and Development on the 10th of November 2016.
The event will be focused on the importance of science, technology and engineering for youth involvement for peace, employment and achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Around 60 young exponents will present their projects at the Addis Ababa Exhibition Centre. Selected projects will be rewarded by an international jury composed of the representatives from the UNESCO Office in Addis Ababa and foreign Embassies (India, Sierra Leone, Cameroon, Italy, Germany and others) and supported by STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) specialists.
