The 2nd edition of the Sci-Tech fair organised by Primetime Limited, producers of the 2018 National Science & Maths Quiz, has ended at the University of Ghana with a call to the youth to find homemade solutions for the problems confronting Ghana.
The two-day event saw over 35 participants, largely drawn from both Junior and Senior High Schools exhibiting their projects.
The aim of the event was to give students the opportunity to put into practice the theories learnt in the classroom.
Speaking at the brief closing ceremony, Mrs. Nana Akua Ankomah-Asare, Managing Director of Primetime Limited, said this year’s fair has been a huge success considering the surge in the number of exhibitors. According to the Managing Director, Primetime Limited will not rest on its laurels in encouraging and motivating the young ones in using their brain-power to make their societies a better place.
“We are really happy you were able to participate in this year’s Sci-Tech Fair. We’ve seen a lot of amazing things that you have exhibited and hope that this would not be the end of it.
We will continue to inspire you to put up innovative projects that can be put to the good use of the Ghanaian people,” she indicated.
Mrs. Ankomah-Asare further thanked the teachers and the sponsors; GOIL, Prudential Life Insurance Ghana and Tullow Ghana, for their support in making the 2018 Sci-Tech Fair a reality.
The sponsors also took turns to congratulate the exhibitors and pledged their support for similar events in the future.
All the participating schools received a certificate of participation with Mfantsipim School, Two Roses International School, and St. Monica’s SHS taking cash prizes for their exceptional projects.
Two individual exhibitors, Salifu Mohammed, otherwise known as Med the Innovator, as well as Seth Wangara also received cash prizes.
Seth Wangara won the hearts of many with his solar transformer which powers his home in Adobewura Number 2, a town closer to Sefwi Bekwai in the Western Region.
