WINNERS OF NATIONAL STEM COMPETITION (gstep) CONFERS ON KUMASI MAYOR

GENIUS SIX, an all-girl technology-based team from the Uaddara Basic School of the 4 Garrison Education Centre in Kumasi who emerged the overall winners of the recent National STEM Competition, Ghana Science and Tech Explorer Prize has paid a courtesy call on the Kumasi Mayor, Hon. Sam Pyne at his office.

According to Mr. David Oppong, Metro Director of Education who led the team, the visit was to officially introduce the team to the Mayor on their achievement as the overall winner of the national competition.

He said the all-female team won the competition through an innovative device they created by name Illuminated Child-Road Safety Device (IC-RSD).

According to the team, the close proximity of their school to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital – Accident and Emergency Unit posed great threat to children who use the busy road in front of the school, citing cases where school children were knocked down by speeding vehicles.
