A 12-year-old girl, Jessicia Ose, has convened a booth camp to pursue the advancement of SDG 4; “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning”, using the STEAM (Science. Technology. Engineering. Arts. Mathematics) framework.
The virtual event tagged summer STEAM Booth Camp started on Monday, August 10, 2020.
The objective was to promote the furtherance of the Sustainable Development Goal 4, targeting an audience of children between ages 6 & 12, featuring subject matter experts. Module taken include: Time management, Negotiation, Table Etiquette, Photography, Cooking, Hand Painting, and Recycled Arts added spice to the event.
At the end of the booth Camp – which had over 100 students in attendance – Jessica is hopeful that every child like her would be more aware about the SDGs and align themselves with at least one by making a change in their immediate circle and making the world a better place.
There were a pack of Do It Yourself [DIY] time, and the children have been churning out amazing work. The Booth camp ends on Saturday August 15, 2020 with a Zoom party where participants will have the opportunity to showcase their works and pledge to move it forward by adopting an SDG of their interests.
Among the trainers are Lead Partner, Shepherd and Crest, Tosin Owolabi; MixnBake CRO, Ikeolu Biobaku; Scroll Consulting CEO, Gamaliel Tanimomo; Kitchen Warehouse CEO, Julia Charles-Abike; and The Quill’s Ink CEO, Modupe Abayomi.
