STEM Projects

Evolve with STEM

Evolve with STEM is an award winning initiative focused on demystifying subjects in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics among young children in public schools. The initiative was personally initiated and spearheaded by Lucy Quist as CEO of Airtel Ghana.


STEM Champions

Lucy Quist greatly utilizes social media to advocate for greater participation and to galvanize action in STEM. STEM Champions is a campaign she runs on social media to promote ideas, people and organisations that use STEM to solve local problems.

The champions and their ideas serve as living proof of what STEM can and will do to leapfrog development on the continent. They also serve as a source of inspiration to others. The campaign featured 13 of some of Ghana’s young and industrious minds in STEM. The campaign has so far generated over nineteen thousand organic impressions on social media.
