Igniting the Power of Science
Africa Science Week is an initiative of the Next Einstein Forum comprised of concurrent week-long science engagement events taking place in 35 countries across the continent. The 2018 Kenya edition of the event, Africa Science Week – Kenya (ASW-Kenya), will be held from December 3rd to 7th 2018 under the theme, ‘Science at Work in Kenya.’ ASW-Kenya activities will take place across the country and highlight science at work in different areas of Kenyan society.
Through the week’s activities, ASW-Kenya will explore the many hidden ways that members of our society engage in science and the deep influence that science has over our daily lives. ASW-Kenya seeks to challenge misconceptions regarding the who, what and why of science, and demonstrate the many ways that science is accessible, interesting and important. ASW-Kenya 2018 also aims to encourage the uptake of science education, careers and entrepreneurship by Kenyans of all ages. We are taking the exceptional work of Kenyan scientists out of the lab and into our streets, homes and minds.
