As many outreach and education efforts and resources emerge around the world, it is paramount that they are combined with joint formal educational initiatives. This kind of national, formal – informal education collaboration will promote improvements in scientific literacy for Nigerians in a global society as new materials are developed in alignment with educational curricula from around the world.
By bringing together teachers, researchers, and practitioners from the fields of formal and informal education, the Meeting will be “a place to be” for those who intend to understand the existing links between the state of science and science education in Nigeria and the objective needs of formal educators.
