Tech-focused oil and gas company, Enyo Retail and Supply and Kids creativity play space, STEM Café recently brought twenty pupils from 5 public schools in Lagos together at STEM Café’s office in Lekki, to partake in a design challenge tagged: Invention to Entrepreneurship.
The event was all about the kids building a vending machine with cardboards and winners earned themselves Android tabs to improve their interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, STEM.
The schools that partook in this challenge were Wesley Girls Secondary School, Sabo, Yaba; Mobolaji Bank-Anthony Junior High School, Sabo, Yaba; Aje Comprehensive Junior High School, Sabo, Yaba; Jibowu Junior High School, Yaba and Eletu-Odibi Junior High School, Abule-Oja, Yaba.
Enyo CEO, Mr Awobokun Abayomi, revealed that the company is geared towards improving and enhancing the lives of kids in the country. He also did not fail to mention that they love to cater to the less-privileged, who have mum and dads that cannot provide the money needed to finance their innovative projects.
My Abayomi had this to say, “On this special day, the children experienced the amazing world of STEM in a fun and interactive way, displaying their designs and resource management skills, while learning how to monetise their invention.
“Also, the children were treated to breakfast by Krispy Kreme and lunch by Kmac Grill. The overall winners of the challenge were given android tablets to further get the children interested in STEM. The role of children in every society is very essential and we must ensure that from a young age, they are provided with the tools they needed to succeed in an ever-changing world.
