Cabinet has approved two initiatives aimed at boosting Science, Maths and Engineering across basic and senior high education levels in Ghana.

First part is construction, provision of equipment and training of trainers for regional Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics, STEM Centres for the SHS System.

The project which is budgeted at ¢88 million is a school based interactive science and technology learning centre, which will provide practical approaches towards learning in Senior High Schools.

The overall aim of the project is to enrich the academic contents offered by formal training in STEM.

Speaking at a news briefing in Accra, the Minister of Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the project will improve the pedagogy of teaching of basic maths and science, address the fear of teaching and learning maths and science as well as provide technology kits for maths and science education.

Meanwhile, Cabinet has also given approval for a 233 million Euro Facility for the construction of the Tamale and Damongo water system aimed at improving delivery of potable water to an estimated 800 thousand people in the Northern Region.

Mr Oppong Nkrumah said the existing water supply system for Tamale and its environs was constructed in 1972 with some expansion works carried out in 2008.

However, as a result of the rapidly growing population, demand has outstripped supply compelling the Ghana water company to ration supply in these areas.
