Dr. Adutwum, the Minister of education, issues a warning about the risks of eliminating STEM Education

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education is essential to Ghana’s development, according to Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, Minister of Education. Dr. Adutwum claims that the government’s considerable investment in this industry emphasises the significance of this sector. Also, he warned aspiring ministers of education against attempting to eliminate STEM education at their own peril.

“We have planted the seeds that will blossom in the years to come. You alter STEM at your own risk; we have already established the groundwork for it. Every foundation the President laid should be built upon since he is transforming education, according to Dr. Adutwum.

He explains that because STEM education fosters analytical thinking and problem-solving skills, the Akufo-Addo administration has made significant investments in this field. STEM education pushes students to solve problems critically and goes beyond teaching them to memorise theories.

The Minister of Education stated that problem-solving is a key component of STEM fields such as science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in an interview with TV3’s Roland Walker on the Big Issue on Friday, February 17.

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are the only courses, he continued, that cannot be remembered and need critical thinking. Learning these topics will provide Ghana’s children the abilities they will need to advance in the fourth industrial revolution.
