iNERDE is a social enterprise with a plan for radical development in Africa. Our STEM Summer Camps teach African youth problem-solving, innovation, entrepreneurship, integrity, self-confidence, teamwork and, of course, the STEM skills needed to succeed in the modern world.
iNERDE’s goal is to provide African youth the opportunity to discover their potential in STEM fields and every field in the modern world that requires high technical literacy. We aim for nothing less than to give Africa’s youth the tools that they need to turn their deep aspiration for a bright future into reality.

PARIS, FRANCE – I’m on my way to Dakar for the final week of iNERDE’s first STEM summer camp in Sénégal. I spent the last few days in Lille at the International Conference on Machine Learning, ICML, a gathering of the world’s top researchers in the science and mathematics behind artificial intelligence. Machine Learning is a revolution in the making, enabling computational devices to understand what they see, hear, and sense and to make decisions that can improve on human performance levels…
We kicked off our second edition of the Colonie de Vacances STEM program this past week in Bamako, Mali and we’ve got plenty of news to share with you!
The summer’s activities started with a launch event at the Cité des Enfants, where iNERDE’s camp directors and teaching staff met with the parents of this year’s participants. They were able to learn more about the science curriculum and all the activities we have in store for their children over the next month. Several former iNERDE participants were also invited to share about their experience at last year’s camp. It was great to see some familiar smiling faces!
