In the wake of an economic recovery in our country, where STEM education and Robotic technology continued to receive no attraction, a persevering scene has been created to proffer Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics innovations. Team Liberia has emerged to effectuate this scenery, and is an all-girls team comprised of high school students who have a passion for STEM and robotics. Since the pathfinding stage of robotics in 2017, Team Liberia has been a master link in spreading the importance of STEM and robotics among the youth of Liberia. Team Liberia believes that in order to build roads, bridges, infrastructures, provide reliable energy, industrialize Liberia with our natural resources, decrease the low ratio of medical doctors per patients, supply clean water, retrench the unemployment rate of the over two (2) million youths, and the overall rebuilding of Liberia, the youth in a collaborative manner from the 15 subdivisions of the country must venture into STEM and execute its many innovations.
