The Ministry of Education will soon introduce Aviation and Aerospace courses in selected Senior High Schools (SHSs) including Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem Girls Senior Secondary School in the Ashanti Region, Minister of Education Osei Yaw Adutwum has said.

The initiative according to Dr Osei Yaw Adutwum who is also the Member of Parliament(MP) for Bosomtwe Constituency is to help students of the school to develop the skills in engineering and technology to demonstrate to other parts of the world that indeed the African child is capable of everything when given the opportunity.

“Because the students were able to build a model aeroplane, we are currently searching for an institution to do a similar course. Therefore, in the coming year, we will have students who will come to the school to study aviation and aerospace”, Mr Osei Yaw Adutwum said this during his visit to the school during the weekend.

“This means they are not coming to study Home Economics neither are they going to study economics, they will study aviation”, he added.

The promise by the Minister is a new initiative from the government and also a demonstration of its commitment to STEM education in the country.

It would recalled that students of Afia Kobi Serwaa Ampem Girls Senior High School a few months ago developed a miniature model airplane to aid data collection during maritime security and surveillance.

According to the manufacturers who are students, sensors and cameras on the model aircraft allow for security activities including search and rescue, accidents and disaster response.

The device is made of Styrofoam, electronic motors and speed controllers.

Meanwhile, the minister during his visit to the school also promised to provide facilities like washrooms, expansion of the school dining hall and a modernized library.
