Let's Build Ghana's Future Together

Inspiring and Empowering the next Generation

The Ghana Science and Tech Explorer Challenge Prize (GSTEP) excites, encourages and supports Junior High School (JHS) students (11-16) and teachers in Ghana to develop practical Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM) skills and products that benefit local communities.

For Ghana to truly thrive, a community must awaken and support the development of our future leaders. GSTEP is inspiring and empowering the next generation of inventors, industry leaders and entrepreneurs in Ghana.

We are changing Ghana's future, one student at a time.

Opportunities to get involved

We are interested in hearing from schools who want their teachers and students to benefit from active learning materials and mentoring free of charge. 

Teachers will see their students challenged to come up with groundbreaking community products and services that could win their school substantial cash and other prizes.

We are looking to develop partnerships with private-sector industry sponsors to help maximise the impact on the lives of our JHS students, schools and teachers. 

There are lots of different opportunities to partner with us, including cash sponsorship packages and in-kind support (including volunteering your time and sharing materials and event spaces free of charge).

The GSTEP programme is working closely with the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service to ensure the programme is a great success.

We are running a number of events for public sector professionals to hear more about our work and opportunities to support us.

There are many committed non-profit organisations using STEM, practical education and entrepreneurial thinking to support young people to develop key skills.

We are running a number of events for non-profit organisations to discuss how we can collaborate with other practitioners working in this space.

Do you work in a STEM-related professional industry and want to support the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs?

There is an exciting opportunity to mentor students and teachers as part of the GSTEP programme. 

Are you a student living in the Greater Accra or Ashanti regions between the ages of 14 and 18?

If so, you can apply to our youth ambassadors programme. Not only will you get the chance to influence the GSTEP programme, you’ll receive top training on leadership skills, career development and entrepreneurship skills.

Making an impact and developing innovative solutions, together.
