Mission Statement

The mission of The Exploratory is to empower educators and inspire students to be curious, courageous and community-minded, by making science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) relevant, joyful, collaborative and equitable.

Description

The Exploratory is a science (STEM) education and gender equity NGO registered in Ghana, with a volunteer team in the Boston area. We take a three-pronged approach to make education more relevant, equitable, joyful, and collaborative. We empower educators through professional development that focus on STEM, gender equity and active learning strategies; enable active, hands-on learning by providing and inspiring the creation of mostly locally available learning materials; and nurture young students' curiosity, courage and sense of community through clubs that includes STEM explorations, field trips, role model visits, girls empowerment and more.

In 2016-2017, we will be inspiring over 550 students in grades 4-8 through 60+ trained teachers from 13 government schools in 4 towns/districts in Ghana - in Accra, Pokuase, Nsawam and Berekuso.
