In an effort to improve their technological skills, primary schools have this holiday joined network clubs as part of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programme, which is the basis for the new education curriculum.

Primary school children are on a mission to improve their technological skills taught at school this holiday by joining networking clubs such as the Maker Club.

STEM concepts at primary school level produce a future student who instead of using sketch pads for art might be a graphic design whizz-kid.

The schoolchildren are being taught hydraulics, computer programming and web designing to build a world-wide squad of creative thinkers, designers and to become problem solvers.

STEM is more than just the teaching of science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects but also involves creating a human resource base which is competent in satisfying industry’s needs by producing practical  and technical skills in Zimbabwe
