The Young Engineers and Scientists of Africa (YESA) is an initiative aimed at increasing the pipeline Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Innovation (STEMI). YESA interventions operate from Grades 0-12 and are designed to supplement the national curriculum in a stimulating and challenging environment to promote creativity and innovation. All interventions are aimed at addressing the gaps in the developmental stages of providing support to learners through a broad range of activities.
Summary of Key Activities of YESA
Key partners include:-

What is a Theme Day? (Please visit the Theme Day Web Site)
Theme Days – Project Based Collaborative Learning Enhanced through ICTs.
The concept of a Theme Day involves a cross curricular approach to project based blended learning pedagogy. A key element is that it makes provision for a range of additional opportunities for a group of learners to become engaged in the process of developing the activities and resources for the rest of their colleagues in the Grade.
