Mission & Vision
The Season of Science & African Children (The Season) is a period dedicated to exploring, expanding, and cultivating the young African scientific mind. During The Season, we are inviting world-renowned guest speakers, educators, and students on the African continent and throughout the diaspora to participate in workshops, presentations, and activities including an international science fair.
During The Season of Science & African Children, our focus is tri-fold:
The exploration of indigenous African knowledge:
We must increase our knowledge and understanding of indigenous scientific methodologies, applications, and technologies to find holistic and sustainable solutions to African people’s and the world’s most pressing problems. Our future lies in resurrecting traditional knowledge and re-establishing indigenous technologies.
The utilization of our knowledge and skills to solve problems facing Africa and its diaspora:
It is critical that Black people in the Diaspora and throughout Africa prioritize contributing to restoring balance and sustainability on earth while utilizing our knowledge and skills to solve problems and develop applications that are focused on African people and serve our unique needs.
The development of a generation of skilled young Black scientists:
To train and educate a future generation of young black scientists committed to utilizing both traditional and Western scientific methods in service of African sustainable development and holistic approaches exploration.
Mathematics is quintessential to African (black) people's history and future. During The Season, we seek to explore and study indigenous conceptions and systems of mathematics.
Knowledge is like a garden. If it is not cultivated, it cannot be harvested.
The Season of Science & African (Black) children explores indigenous knowledge and knowledge systems of African (black) people worldwide.
