Guma Lectures Students on STEM

Vice President of Sierra Leone, Dr. Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh at the Guma Stand

Guma Valley Water Company on Thursday 9th May, 2019 joined the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education (MBSSE) at the National Stadium to offer students a variety of exploration techniques and insights into the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) career pathways and opportunities in the water sector.

The aim of the conference is to bridge the gap between the STEM industry and education by inspiring students and providing them with the tools to connect with STEM and what careers are viable to them now and once they have graduated.

Addressing students during the interactive session, Miss Monica Sellu, an Engineer at Guma encouraged the students to take up STEM education as it aims to bring students up-to-speed on the skills and knowledge most relevant in today’s society. She said with STEM education, students can become employed upon graduation in one of the numerous fields in the water industry such Planning & Research, Water Quality Assurance, Water Production, Transmission & Distribution, etc.
