Sixty one students from four secondary schools in Lagos – Queen’s College, Yaba; Federal Science and Technical College, Yaba; Yaba College of Technology Secondary School and Kings College, Lagos are presently undergoing a training programme called Summer Stem Field Experience 2015, being organized by Grow With Nigeria, a non-government organization (NGO) based in United States (US) to help the students choose a promising future career.

The Executive Director of Grow With Nigeria, Texas, US, Teminioluwa Ajayi, a student in Duke University School of Medicine, Texas, said in Lagos, yesterday at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) that, “What you find particularly in science students in Nigeria is that they don’t really know what professionals in this field do until they get into the profession.”

He said that they want the students to know about the things they will actually be doing in the future as professionals. “When they become Medical or Engineering students. We want them to get the taste of what the doctors and engineers are doing. Hopefully, that will help them make decisions on what kind of career they want to do.”
