Around the globe, particularly in developing countries, women and youths lack opportunities to obtain the education that they so desperately need and deserve. Cultural stigmas, religious restrictions, and oppressive laws keep women trapped in desperate poverty and ignorance, unable to obtain the education that might give them hope. History has shown time and again that educating girls provides benefits to the economies of nations. In many cases, changes in cultural attitudes and the legal status of women have resulted in economic benefits that break the cycle of centuries of poverty in just a single generation. The fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) are critical to any nation seeking to grow in the 21st century global economy. A robust economy will require citizens thoroughly equipped to compete in the science and technology fields. Aerospace Palace Academy, Nigeria is where Innovation happens. Our mobile App and the rocket and aircraft kits serve as the “vehicle” to reinforce Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics concepts as well as to teach valuable life skills such as teamwork, leadership, and innovative thinking.” Our STEM Innovation strives to achieve this goal by focusing on three primary objectives. 1. To encourage and inspire young people in developing countries to pursue post-secondary education and careers in scientific and technical fields by hosting STEM workshops that foster their interest. 2. To bring students from other developing nations to adopt our mobile application and attend our online and virtual schools to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics wherever they are in the world. 3. To create supplementary programs and encourage implementation of STEM programs at the schools in Nigeria and other developing countries that support these students and encourage them to view science, technology, engineering, and mathematics as a tool to instill innovative and problem-solving skills.
