Young Minds Science Programme (YMSP)
This is a programme targeted at pupils in primary schools. It features series of activities aimed at raising pupil’s educational aspirations and stimulating their interest in science subjects. The utmost aim of this programme is to encourage young children to develop a career path in biosciences.

STEP-UP Science Programme (SUSP)
This is a programme targeted at students in rural and urban secondary schools where basic facilities and resources for science teaching are lacking. Our approach includes donation of science equipment and various instructional resources, training of science teachers, science mentoring, summer schools etc. We also expose students from these background to basic scientific techniques in line with the Nigerian Secondary Schools Curriculum.
