STEM talk

On April 24th 2014, the “Bill Gates” Bilingual school complex, a primary school located in Yaounde, hosted the first GetReady event, a “Career Day” at the occasion of the International Girls in ICT Day 2014. To maximize the impact of the event for students, their teachers and parents were also invited and many were present.


The activities of the event included:

  • an introduction address by M. Félix Ngada, the school manager;
  • a brief discussion with students about their favourite subject in class to break the ice;
  • Presentations by three enthousiastic professional women in STEM about ICT studies and careers (by Nathalie Tekam, IT Engineer), and the importance of ICT in other STEM careers (by Maryben Chiatoh : agronomist, and Sylvie Djacbou : Environmental Consultant);
  • a workshop with students to lead them to have fun while thinking to solve a problem, experiencing teamwork and exercising leadership;
  • a Q/A session;
  • a brief demo in the school’s IT room to students and parents to explain them what using “kebisu”, the web tutoring platform to be deployed soon in their school, will change for them.
