Science in Africa - where are the under-sixes?

I just sent this blast:

Science in Africa

Science in Africa is possibly undergoing a renaissance since, after having endured decade and longer civil wars and economic crises, many countries have entered a period of rapid growth and leaders are starting to see science and technology as the keys to progress. In 2006, members of the African Union endorsed a target for each nation to spend 1% of its gross domestic product (GDP) on research and development (R&D). Malawi, Uganda and South Africa – topped the 1% spending threshold in 2007; most remained far from that mark, even when the support from foreign donors was included.

Heads of state in Africa declared 2007 the year for scientific innovation.



NOTE: STEM Clubs for Kids are of the opinion that, for Governments to really overcome the challenges of science education, there should be more attention given to including the under-sixes as an essential, major group for science education.
