GetBundi a Tech Platform, Targets Youths for STEM Learning in Africa.

Educational technology platform GetBundi, is targeting to equip African youths with high quality, accessible and affordable Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and STI digital skills.

The education technology platform, a product of Wings of Justice Limited, is​ focused on Africa’s youth education towards STEM and digital skills as a gateway to lift millions out of poverty.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, Osita Oparaugo, CEO/founder of GetBundi, noted that the idea was birthed from an understanding that only countries with STEM-enabled citizenry can realize meaningful development.

The CEO said that, Singapore leveraged on science and technology to become a developed country. China transformed from having a no-flush problem to being a global giant in science. These countries have flourished economies because of the critical role scientific and technological advancements.

“All that China and Singapore have achieved in less than 50 years, Africa can also gain  using STEM Education and STI skills acquisition, specifically when one takes into account the abundance of human resource capital and the resilient nature of African youths.”

Osita reiterated the need for the youths to be equipped through understanding and appreciation of science and technology so that they can harness STEM skills to overcome myriad of challenges facing the African continent.

According to the CEO, GetBundi is also focusing on secondary school education and currently there is over 1,008 hours of audio-visual content on the platform covering six years of secondary school work.

“Our STEM education is West African curriculum-based, it is purposed for post-primary school students from JSS1/Year 7 to SSS3/Year 12. It covers subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, ICT, Data Processing, and English Language. Revision for competitive examinations, in particular, SSCE for up to three years with monthly live question with answer sessions also included,” Oparaugo said.

The founder predicted that the platform would support and mentor 10 million Africans in the next 10 years through STEM and STI digital skills acquisition via a strategy tagged, ‘The GetBundi Vision 2032’.

He mentioned that GetBundi has not come to replace the traditional method of teaching or physical secondary school, but as an accompaniment that can be used by the teachers as an aid to support continuous learning and as a study guide for out-of-school students/homeschoolers.

He disclosed that GetBundi is working to include three years of JAMB, IELTS, and TOEFL revision classes, as well as Science, Technology and innovation skills in its next product placement.

“The STI skills would include video editing, digital marketing, graphic design and coding courses, and users who successfully complete a course and its accompanying assignments would earn a diploma.” He said

The Programme Coordinator, Juliet Ijeh mentioned that the initiative​ is to get STEM learning to many youths as possible irrespective of their location, especially with the high level of insecurity across Africa which has made learning in schools more difficult.

“This product will make innovative learning attractive to young minds such that even after secondary school, some of them can decide to be entrepreneurs, or go into creative and productive activities,” she said.
