SHE Science and Technology Fair
The SHE Science & Technology Fair is the only girls-only science fair of its scale in West Africa, and perhaps Africa. The annual Fair provides a platform for SHE participants to demonstrate their learning and proficiency in electronics programming and mobile games design, sharpen their communication skills, build their confidence, and promote the applicability and fun of science to a wider audience of girls. The one-day event features exhibitions of the girls’ projects, and inspiring panels of young girls and women in STEM, including SHE participants.
The maiden Fair took place in November 2018 at the Shell Hall MUSON center with over 600 guests and students in attendance. The second edition in January 2019 had a little over 700 students and guests in attendance. The event has since pulled notable female guests/speakers including CEO of Siemens Nigeria, Mrs Onyeche Tifase; General Manager DeepWater Operations with Chevron Nigeria, Mrs Michelle Obatoyinbo, and the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr Idiat Oluranti Adebule.
