The minister stated that these activities would be offered in collaboration with a few universities.
Speaking at the 2nd STEM Promotion Roadshow at Abomosu STEM Model School in the Eastern Region, the Minister revealed this.
According to Dr. Adutwum, the country’s economic status needs to drastically improve, and education will be a key factor in making that happen.
He added that learning management systems that have been downloaded online and placed onto tablets will be given to 30 schools.
The change, which is a part of the government’s transformational STEM strategy, will allow students who enrol and graduate to finish a year of college work and spend three years in university rather than four.
“Twelve schools in our country are going to do aviation and aerospace engineering. We are partnering with universities in a very creative way, and the creativity is borne out of the fact that the students who will be able to enroll in the program by the time they graduate from high school will have completed one year of college work,” he said.
“Consequently, when they go to university, they will spend three years instead of four years…I want to assure you that the government understands that in the short, medium term, long term, our transformation depends on education,” he added.
