Over the years the organization has helped to enhance and support science education in Liberia, aimed are inspiring students in order for them to take interest in scientific learning. The organization is achieving this by offering technology and guidance to schools that demonstrate a commitment to training their students in the disciplines of science.
This project is founded upon the belief that providing the tools for Liberian students to apply their knowledge of science will enable them to create a skilled workforce integral to post-Civil War rehabilitation efforts.
