Inspire Africa delivers affordable and accessible 4th Industrial Revolution (4iR) technology programmes and curricula to students in Africa – supporting the development of valuable core skills that will position learners for vocational opportunities in our ever-changing career landscape.  Our core focus is on developing STEAM skill sets to achieve this.

In addition to our Inspire S.T.E.A.M. Schools Drone Coding programme which is currently part of STEAM curricula in 25 schools across South Africa, we have opened our channels of learning to offer home based virtual online classes, some are self-teaching, others offer real-time virtual instructor-led classes.
Our aim is to develop STEAM education by delivering content via channels that can be accessed by any parent, child or teacher.  Online and Offline.  In a classroom, home schools or simply as an extra curricula activity that a learner does not want to miss out on.

Inspire Africa is a group on a mission.  “The future of our economy relies greatly on people with STEAM skills.” says Simon Robinson, Founder and CEO.  “Africa haemorrhages cross cultural talent in STEAM disciplines from as early as primary school.  This means that we are not drawing on 100% of our talent pool in STEAM careers, and our economy will suffer from the lack of diversity.”
Why Inspire Africa programmes and curricula?
We are supporting 21st century skills development to improve the chances of lucrative occupational selections and better equip students to create careers in the new future.
