Kaiser Foundation for Social Development has rounded off the maiden edition of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Summer Camp Construction Programme – Lagos 2016.
It was a 7-day mentoring and hands-on technical training programme with award and recognition for the over 30 children that took part in the programme.
The children had the opportunity to learn more about construction and engineering and then showcased what they had been doing during the weeklong programme.
To appreciate their efforts, one after the other, they were honoured for job well done.
In the course of the week, the programme focused on career guidance, mentorship, leadership skills, vocational and skills acquisition in construction.
With the theme, ‘Construction Can Be Fun’, the CEO of Construction Kaiser Limited, organisers of the programme, Igbuan Okaisabor, asked the private sector to identify and support secondary school students and expose them to construction.
He explained that the value added to the programmes’s young participants within one week would be better felt in the society if other organisations do the same.
The children expressed delight in the wealth of knowledge they had acquired in just one week and the organisers have said that they would to sustain it.
