Ndumberi Girls Students following keenly on motivation talks


The number of students enrolling for science and technology degree courses in Kenyan Universities remains low despite a majority of girls having done very well in their KCSE exams. The number of those involved in research is even much smaller as you move to graduate degree programmes. The low-level of their involvement in research and science is in most cases attributed to cultural expectations where women are expected to take care of the family and household responsibilities. Science courses are viewed as a masculine subject which should be taken by men only. The Institute of Nuclear Science & Technology, through the funding of International Science Program (ISP), usually organise seminars and talks to sensitise communities on the importance of science and encourage women to take up science courses. On 16th June 2017, a team of Women in Physical Sciences from the Institute of Nuclear Science & Technology attended a career day in Ndumberi Girls, Kiambu and gave motivational talks to encourage the girls to take up courses in Physical Sciences.
