Effecting change through STEM Education
Emerging Leaders in Technology & Engineering aims to supplement the existing educational systems of developing societies to enrich the growth of young thinkers and leaders. ELiTE does not follow any curricular requirements other than the pursuit of innovation. The program emphasizes hands-on problem solving as a means to address to local issues. To this end, ELiTE has students create experiments and design projects that reflect the daily challenges that their communities face. The program emphasizes perspective over knowledge, and provides a platform for students to discover their own abilities to affect change at home. As Patrick Awuah asserts, "the ability to create is the most empowering thing to happen to an individual."
