A Deputy Finance Minister John Ampontuah Kumah on Friday, February 18, 2022, cut the sod for work to start on the construction of a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics school at Abenase in the Ejisu constituency.
The project forms part of the government’s transformation agenda to provide students with 21st-century skills and hands-on knowledge in problem-solving.
The school, when completed, will have state-of-the-art facilities, including a 1,500-seater multi-purpose hall, a four-storey, 28-unit classroom block, 14 science laboratories, a sickbay, an administrative area, a staff common room, a library, washrooms, and a canteen.
Courses to be offered include robotics and artificial intelligence, creativity, communication, collaboration, and computer science.
The school would admit learners from kindergarten to senior high school (SHS).
