In Ghana, many students (and teachers!) are put off from asking science questions.  Science is ‘too hard’ or ‘not practical’ for a business career. But it’s amazing what these same people can accomplish with the right support and encouragement. 

Last year, Lightyear volunteers had students who were “too young” build amazingly complex and structurally sound bridges.  We had high school students who were “too cool” interweave their hands to demonstrate forces, or kick footballs to demonstrate gravity and pressure.  And we had classrooms rocking to the sound of laughter, instead of pages turning. 

It is easy to imagine these same young people bringing this new-found enthusiasm to their communities and careers. This is your chance to join a volunteer team that is leading the way in promoting creative science in Ghana and giving young Ghanaians (and their teachers) the tools and know-how to further their own scientific endeavours. 

We will be in Ghana for the two weeks from 26th October – 10th November 2013
