Co-Founder, STEM METS Resources
Jadesola Adedeji is the Co-founder of STEM METS Resources, an education company bridging the 21st century skills gap within the Nigerian educational system. She has a dream of changing what education looks like in Nigeria by using innovative, hands-on educational tools and programs to equip children and youths with essential 21st century skills needed to compete in the future workplace. After a 20-year career in the pharmaceutical industry, her foray into education and skills development was borne out of a desire to engage her own children and by extension, other children in her community, in creative and inspiring enrichment programs that will teach them “how” to think not “what” to think. The company provides hands-on and project-based training programs to children and youths using Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths – ‘STEM’ based programs to teach critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration skills. Armed with the relevant technical and soft skills, students are better positioned to access dignified and meaningful job opportunities in the future and the pathway for financial sustainability is more attainable. To date, over 18,000 learners have accessed their programs across Nigeria. They support SDG 4, Quality Education; SDG 5, Gender Equality and SDG 10, Reduced Inequalities. Jadesola obtained a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree from King’s College, University of London and a MBA from University of Calgary, Canada. She completed an Executive Program in Social Entrepreneurship at INSEAD, Fontainebleau, France. She is also part of the consortium that convened the STEAMFUN Fest event that saw 6,000 parents and children enjoy all things STEAM under one roof!
