Livingstone Etse Satekla, better known by his stage name Stonebwoy has rekindled his passion for education and science in particular after he openly advocated for the use of the “Science Set” live on his show on the 29th December at an in Sunyani.
The STEM education campaign received a major boost ahead of the year 2020 with the award winning dance Hall GAD Stonebwoy joining the campaign. There at the event filled with close to 4000 people, Stonebwoy used the opportunity to address the audience on the need for everyone to take science serious.
He further went on to say that science plays an important role in the development of a country. He made it known that with the help of science through technology, the event has been made possible, citing examples of the tools used; microphones, sound mixers, amplifiers, lights among many other equipment that made their work as entertainers possible.
An introduction of the award winning innovation, “The Science Set” was done by the famous artiste.
The Dext team was introduced to the audience after which he admonished the audience to show support towards the science set. He then affirmed that January 2020, he will embark on a “Back to School” campaign to drive home the need for STEM in ghana.
On stage live projection of the young Ghanaian startup is something no artist has done before in the history of Ghana music. This is indeed worth celebrating and more attention should be paid to this awesome example.
ABOUT SCIENCE SET
The Science Set is an affordable science toolbox that contains 45 individual materials for over 38 experiments and is small enough to fit on a student’s desk. There are currently over 40,000 students in Ghana, United Kingdom and the United States with access to the science set.
Science Set is designed and manufactured by Dext Technologies who has the capacity and resources including people and production workshops to provide the requisite technical support for all Science Sets that it will produce and distribute. Dext has a tall list of science and technology developers and contributors with an extensive range of expertise for all areas of interests in its portfolio.
HOW TO USE
The design philosophy of the Science Set is to be intuitive by default. Very little training if any is required for teachers to use and administer the use of the science set. In addition, Dext has developed comprehensive user and instructor manuals to make the use of the Science Set easy and fun for teachers and students. They also have a comprehensive series of videos that show how to effectively use the science set.
