Introducing more rigorous curriculum and increasing knowledge transfer alone cannot improve STEM education in Nigeria. Rather an avenue where students can apply scientific methods in solving real life problems, would be a better way to embrace STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education in Nigeria.

Clintonel Innovation Centre, CIC as a STEM centre aims at bridging such gaps in our education and tech ecosystem.
