iNERDE’s Colonie de Vacances STEM just finished up its first week in Bamako! So far the iNERDE team in Mali, comprised of Mohamed Kante, Christian Vlcek, Nadia Famularo, & Rebecca Brosseau, have introduced the students to each of the STEM fields and how they are used in our daily lives, built parachutes and gliders, and brought in several inspiring guest speakers to talk about their careers in STEM.
“The highlight of my week was hearing the screams of excitement as our “nerds-in-the-making” launched their gliders off the balcony. The looks on their faces were a great reward for the hours of preparation we’ve done, and I continue to be inspired by their curiosity and eagerness to share what they’ve learned about STEM.” – Nadia Famularo, iNERDE Empowerment Agent
We would like to again thank all of the week one activity sponsors for your support!
