Science education in Uganda (and many African countries) has been reduced to teaching enough theory to simply pass exams. Practical, problem-based learning and experimentation has fallen by the wayside.
This leads to poor overall classroom performance, poor skills development, low job & career prospects and ultimately, weak economic development.
Fundi Bots is intervening by working with schools and communities to provide hands-on, practical STEM / general science education in classrooms and communities.
Our mission is to use robotics training in African schools to create and inspire a new generation of problem solvers, innovators and change-makers.
We want to see improved – and equal – access to quality science education, better technology innovation and overall economic growth across Africa as a direct result of exposing students from an early to better science education training and tools.
The work we do bridges the technology divide between the classroom and the real-world and provides training and resources that are modern and relevant to the students inside or outside standard academic institutions.
We want students and non-enrolled youth to learn practical skills and resources from day one and follow an education and career path that teaches them to be excellent students in the classroom, innovative problem-solvers in the real-world, experienced and knowledgeable employees, and exceptional technology entrepreneurs.
