About Young Scientists Kenya
Young Scientists Kenya (YSK) is a unique initiative that gives young people from across Kenya an opportunity to demonstrate innovation and showcase their scientific talents through a National Science and Technology competition. YSK is based on the premise that a wealth of talent and potential for innovation exists among Kenyan youth and that by providing a platform for them to compete and showcase their own practical solutions to the problems faced within their communities, they can be encouraged to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
Young Scientists Kenya is an initiative of both the Ministry of Education and the Government of Ireland through its Embassy in Kenya, and with support from BLAZE by Safaricom and other partners. The patron of YSK is the President of Kenya, H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta.
