Today Nelson Mandela would have been 100 years old. A champion for education, Nelson Mandela suggested that world-class African Institutes of Science & Technology (AISTs) in sub-Saharan Africa were perhaps Africa’s greatest need.
He advocated for the establishment of AISTs for the pursuit and promotion of excellence in science and engineering, and their applications for economic growth and sustainable development in Africa.
The Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology (NM-AIST) supports his vision of cultivating leaders to keep Africa on a consistent path of improvement.
We at STEMHub Foundation believe in Madiba’s vision for STEM in Africa and celebrate his legacy.
