The early years are a critical period that greatly shape and determine the course of one’s life. Consequently, chances that an individual will attain their full potential are heightened when their natural talents are encouraged and nurtured during this early stage.

We present AFRALTI STEM, a series of mentorship programs for the inquisitive young mind. Subject themes revolve around IoT, AI, and Robotics.

The programs are organized into modules. Each module targets a specific age range:

MODULE A: Junior Computing and Digital Technology (14yr – 17yr)

Module Overview

This module teaches practical computing and basic digital electronics skills. It leverages modern

technologies and teaches repurposing of (otherwise mere) consumer devices and products such as

smartphones/tablets as tools for practical IoT innovation.
