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.

LAGOS, NIGERIA – The future of education is gradually evolving beyond the four walls of the classroom and is making use of both conventional and unconventional means to educate millions around the world. The internet is playing a major role in achieving this.
This brings me to the concept of MOOC, my main topic of discourse in this blogpost. Before I delve further into how I have been able to make use of this resource, I’d like to give you a basic definition of what MOOC is all about…
iNERDE is launching its first major fundraising campaign since the successful conclusion of our Colonie de Vacances STEM last summer. We, all of us who contribute their time to iNERDE, are committed to engagement. We want to build a better world with our hands, our minds, and our hearts. It can seem like a diversion to work on marketing and fundraising, though we recognize that getting our message across and securing resources allows us to develop curriculum, deliver it our Nerdy kids, and to turn dreams into reality.
