Ovamba’s Chief Operations Officer, Viola Llewellyn will participate at the “Pioneering STEM in Africa 2015 Summit” hosted by Konnect2Africa Ltd [K2A] in the UK. The event took place from the 3rd to the 4th of December 2015 at The Royal Society in London, a prominent and prestigious venue where major important scientific events are organized.
According to the konnect2Africa, “This event aims to bring Africa to the forefront of the minds of investors when it comes to STEM. It will address key topics in advancing STEM and technical education in Africa through the collaboration of industry, educators and policy makers. Key themes to be covered include the role of schools, colleges, and universities in developing STEM; careers and skills development; and international perspectives, research and initiatives”.
About her participation in the summit, Viola Llewellyn explained, “Since becoming an active member of the Board of Trustees of the International Women’s Think Tank (www.IWThink.Tank.org) in 2013, I have come to believe that the traditional image of STEM disciplines is up for challenge and scrutiny.” She also added: “The whole world, Africa in particular needs to revise the old notions of dusty chemistry labs and conceptual theories. Science is all around us and the next generation will shape their world through the lens of technical innovation to meet challenges and solve world problems”
