PRN partner Proof Communication Africa is making a short film about discovery-based learning for the Siemens Stiftung’s Experimento education programme. This is the result of an introduction from PRN founding partner Sympra in Germany in 2011, the start of a good working relationship with the Stiftung’s education and innovation programmes in Africa.
Proof travelled to Nairobi in May 2017 to shoot the Kenyan leg of the film, which demonstrates how future scientists learn best through self-experimentation in the classroom. Africa has a large youth population and the Stiftung is committed to the spread of STEAM education (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) as a critical component of social and economic development on the continent. PRN partners Proof and Sympra are there to support them.
