Apam holds science and technology camp for its students
Apam, Sept 29, GNA- A Science, Technology and Mathematics Education (STME) camp organised for 82 SSS/JSS students from Apam has ended with a call on parents to give their children the necessary logistics to enable them to take their lessons seriously.
Miss Joyce Aidoo, District Chief Executive for Gomoa, said the only way Ghana could catch up with the developed world is to encourage the youth to take up science.
"Building indigenous and substantial science and technology capabilities is vital in eliminating illiteracy, ignorance, disease and poverty", she said.
Miss Aidoo said if Africa is to redress its shortfall in human resources and scientific progress it must begin by ensuring that the education of the youth is complete and qualitatively comprehensive. She called for investment in human resources in order to manage technological change.
The Central Regional Director of Education, Mrs Justice Dzordgiabor commended the Gomoa District Assembly for funding the workshop and urged the students to take whatever they have been taught to practice.
Mr Isaac Hakoba Baidoo, Acting Director of Education for Apam, appealed to students to keep with their books and refrain from immoral acts that could lead them in contract HIV/AIDS.
