Team Liberia 2020 🇱🇷

Liberia as a country has suffered and continues to experience the pieces of our conflict that greatly voided the cultural norms, values and aspirations of children while the rest of the world is speedily moving on the technological stage. We live in a country where our parents or citizens believe that the building of robots by Liberia kids is the biggest comedy or myth. We live in a country where almost half of our youthful population are wiping away due to negative influences, while the rest of the surviving youths practice and take politics as a career.

However, the glorious inceptions of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Global mission & vision in Liberia since 2017 didn’t just come as a joyous day break to the children of Liberia, it came as a beacon of hope in the form of a STEM barrier-breaking revolution, which continues to explode the minds of our kids that Liberia can not only be a beneficiary of scientific discoveries and inventions, but we ourselves can join hands with the world, take up research in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, tackle the world’s most grand challenges, and improve quality of life for mankind.

Moreover, the results and impact of robotics education ranging for FIRST Global Inauguration Challenge where Team Liberia displayed astronomical performance to the Ocean Opportunities challenge held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Team Liberia has embarked on an adventure of inspiring young Liberian students to grow passion for STEM education with a visit of over fifty schools, spreading the mission and vision of FIRST, until the Corona Virus Pandemic stagnation. Team Liberia upon their return from Dubai quickly transitioned into a full-fledged organization called STEM Club Team Liberia, based in Monrovia. STEM Club Team Liberia envisioned building a unique and unparalleled platform for both the privileged and underprivileged students and youths of Liberia to come together in one place, in order to share knowledge, discover, invent, design, and build a new Liberia through the innovations of Science, Technology Engineering, and Mathematics.
