President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is scheduled to cut sod for the first of many schools aimed at rigorously pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in Ghana.
The ceremony will take place in Accra on Wednesday, January 12. It will be the Accra STEM Academy.
According to reports, this is to reposition education anchored on STEM.
It is expected to be one of the lasting legacies of the Akufo-Addo administration in the area of education.
It appears to be the implementation of some of the policies in the 2022 budget.
In the budget presented by Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta to Parliament in November, 2021, government is planning to build 35 STEM Senior High Schools and five STEM universities across the country.
