Surprising facts about Africa - challenging stereotypes

Surprising facts about Africa - challenging stereotypes

Suprising Africa

Science and technology in Africa is an area which children in the UK tend to know very little about and so these facts and lesson plan help to address this. Even when we are familiar with African music, arts, or sport, we tend to hear very little about the use of certain innovations. These may not reach all parts of a country in the continent, but knowing about mobile phone usage, the broadband network or space programmes can challenge stereotypes and alter the perceptions of young people and teachers alike.
