  • Description

    Delegates from twelve African countries attended the opening ceremony of a representative council meeting of the Science Education Programme for Africa in Lagos, Nigeria, on Monday (24 July).

    The organisation, known as SEPA, has as its major objective the improvement of the learning of science at all education levels in Africa.

    At the opening ceremony, the Federal Education Commissioner for Nigeria, A.Y. Eke, said that science had been a big help to the African child. In a speech read by the Chief Federal Adviser on education, Mr Bakari, the Commissioner said that children had acquired, through science, the freedom to think and to discover the "nothingness of superstition".

    The Science Education Programme for Africa was established in February 1970. It developed out of the African Primary Science Programme which had been in existence since 1965.
