Promoting an interest in science
The KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Schools Engagement Programme (SEP) aims at promoting an interest in science through interactions between researchers, students and teachers.
ABOUT KEMRI SEP
The Schools Engagement Programme (SEP) was established by KEMRI with the support of Kilifi County Education Office. SEP forms part of a wider community engagement platform whose core aim is to promote an interest in science and related careers.
SEP was established for three reasons:
- First, to respond to the local leaders’ requests for involvement in schools.
- Second, because researchers felt that they could contribute to local secondary school education
- Third, to create an opportunity for dialogue between researchers and members of the community aimed at promoting mutual understanding.
