AfricAcademy and its educational and school programs exist to support the continent of Africa harness its large population, which is also the most youthful while growing at the fastest rate in the world. This creates huge opportunities not just for Africa but for the whole world.
This is because, this youthful population provides a potential for a magical demographic dividend by balancing the aging and decreasing population in the developed world, and thus evening out the global dependency ratio. However, this potential can only be harnessed if the youthful population of Africa is enabled to become technologically savvy and professional – workforce, entrepreneurs, and inventors- attractive to investment under the global green economy of the fourth industrial revolution.
This revolution threatens to leave billions behind and outside the mainstream due to its technological basis which is changing and growing exponentially while rapidly disrupting nearly every job everywhere. Therefore, Africa requires schooling and technological training systems that prepare the young for jobs that do not even exist at the moment. This is where Arusha Science comes in.
AfriCan professional – workforce, entrepreneurs, and inventors in all sectors who work and compete well globally in the dynamic green economy of the 4th Industrial Revolution
To operate programs, facilities, and human resources that enable competence & entrepreneurship-based science learning. Through our science-in-use clubs and facilities, we are set to drive the understanding, appreciation, and knowledge of our students of the rapidly emerging technologies.
We provide a critical understanding of the relationship between what is taught under the official syllabus, and the potential of tomorrow’s sectors. Such as quantum computing and its sister artificial intelligence; robotics and their brothers’ autonomous vehicles; 3-D printing and its driver’s nanotechnology & materials science; biotechnology and its offspring vertical farming; and green energy technologies to drive all the above.
We aim to contribute to the building of a continental movement for creating a critical mass of competent AfriCan professionals, entrepreneurs and innovators in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in all sectors, who work and compete well in the dynamic global green economy of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
