Webinar: Building Teachers’ Capacity to Teach STEM with PhET Simulations in Africa: Experience Of The University Of Abuja, Nigeria Overview STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education is widely recognised as a key driver of national sustainable development and innovative socioeconomic transformation. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is also seen as a vital tool for advancing this development.
