Women History Month: Engaging Youth in Science

Envoy Ankunda working with young scientists

March 20, 2019

Science envoy Ankunda Kariisa is empowering young generations in Cote d’Ivoire for scientific careers, and in this case, through water sanitation. Female participants enjoyed these scientific experiments as they put together the connection between science and daily life. U.S. Embassy Abidjan is actively working on a larger Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) program with the Ministry of Education as a part of Embassy goal to foster economic growth by investing in girls’ STEM education in Cote d’Ivoire.
