Pan-African Science and Engineering Fair

Pan-African Science and Engineering Fair

For the first time, PARC will host the Pan-African Science and Engineering Fair. This event, sponsored by Google, celebrates the creativity and innovation of African young scientists, engineers, and innovators. The fair brings together participants from all over Africa to showcase their research, projects, and inventions in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The event allows participants to network, share knowledge, and collaborate on future projects aimed to developing technological innovations that will propel the African continent into the fifth industrial revolution. AgTech, HealthTech, RetailTech, and LogTech are the subthemes of this year competition.

Teams must use the human-centered approach of Design Thinking to design or create a new service or product. Alternatively, if teams choose to redesign or build an existing system or product, they should use the Whole System & Life Cycle Thinking sustainable design approach. Teams that have chosen to program a device as part of their model have the option of using sponsored MathWorks software for free.
All the teams have to register before July 1st 2023
