Stakeholders have been urged to support Government in the transformation of the country's STEM education.
Mr. Solomon Owusu, a Ghanaian based in the diaspora was of the view that government alone cannot take up the challenge and therefore called for collaborative effort in making it a success.
According to him, STEM education plays major roles in the development of every nation, hence the need to pay much attention to the course.
