  • About Us
    Genius Education Zambia is an EdTech, social enterprise existing at the intersection of Science, Education, and Leadership. We facilitate, enhance, and promote quality STEM education in Zambia by applying a "systems change model.” 

     Genius impacts and empowers young Zambians with higher quality primary and secondary school education. We equip learners with skills that are directly relevant to the future of work, enhancing workforce readiness. 

    We focus on the 4th revolution and enhance skills in artificial intelligence, web3, cybersecurity, big data, metaverse and VR/AR, design thinking, innovations, sustainability, machine learning, quantum sciences and 3d technologies, nanotechnologies, to name these. We curate solutions for three main stakeholders: the end users (beneficiaries), the policy makers (government), and the secondary stakeholders (community).
    <span style="background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.05);">1. Curriculum Development We are developing and implementing a comprehensive 4th Industrial Revolution STEM curriculum for K-12 education. This curriculum integrates Creativity, Innovation, Emerging Technologies, Leadership, and Ethics while leveraging Neuroscience and Psychology to optimize learning. Our curriculum is available in hardcopy books as well as web-based and application-based E-learning. We have so far completed the first two levels of this 21st-century skills curriculum. Additionally, the curriculum incorporates innovative use of Generative AI, including GPT-3, which revolutionizes the training experience, ensuring an interactive and immersive educational journey for our students. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for the 4th Industrial Revolution, incorporating cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence and web3. 2. Genius Academy Programming We also provide hands-on learning experiences in key emerging technologies like computer science, artificial intelligence, web3, cybersecurity, and more. Our approach focuses on interactive and practical learning methods and This is achieved at our Genius Academy programs such as science fairs, STEM camps, code camps, curriculum development and educators upskilling, and innovation hubs. 3. Upskilling and capacity building for educators We also build the capacity of educators and institutions to deliver quality STEM education. Through professional development programs, training workshops, and mentorship initiatives, we aim to empower teachers with the necessary skills and resources to effectively engage students in STEM learning. 4. Research and Development We carry out STEM and educational research through our Research fellowships</span>
    We collaborate with a wide range of local and international organizations, academia, industry players, and government agencies to amplify our impact and reach. In addition to our existing partners such as the United States Embassy in Zambia, US Department of Education, Zambia Research and Development Corporation (ZRDC), Information Communications University (ICU), Engineering Institution of Zambia (EIZ), National Science Center (NSC), Zambia Women in Agricultural Research and Development (ZAWARD), and the World Bank Zambia Country Office, we are proud to partner with organizations like Pyxera, QS (Quacquarelli Symonds), CABI, SAP, EO Robotics, ZNSF (Zambia National Science Foundation), Daisy Care, University of Zambia, and World Merit. These collaborations enable us to leverage diverse expertise, resources, and networks to further our mission of advancing STEM education and innovation in Zambia and beyond.
    As of February 2024, we have implemented programs including research fellowships, STEM camps, code camps, curriculum development, innovation hubs, and science fairs. Our track record of quantitative impact and past achievements, such as winning a QS Quacquarelli Symonds Reimagine Education Award in 2023 under the category of Science of Learning. Our quantitative impact indicators for the past five years, further validate the extent of our reach and impact. These include a direct annual impact of 2000 people, management of 12 ongoing projects, and a cumulative social media reach of over ~1 million individuals across platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Additionally, we have engaged 200 active E-learning users, reached 300 schools, and employed approximately 5 full-time staff members alongside 4 part-time staff. Over 120 volunteers have contributed to our initiatives, and we have distributed 1024 copies of our curriculum textbook in Zambian schools. Furthermore, we have hosted 5 science fairs, conducted 5 national writing competitions, and organized 2 national STEM award events. Our programs have reached 10 community schools, generating $50,000 in revenue. We have also hosted 2 global STEM summits, mentored 103 winners from science fairs and writing contests, and conducted 20 school outreach mentorship programs. Additionally, we have organized over 10 STEM camps, established 3 innovation hubs, and trained over 100 youths at Genius Academy, with an additional 32 youths benefiting from the Genius Excel Mentorship Program. Additionally, in 2022, we received $26,000 in funding from the United States Embassy in Zambia and $5,000 from the Global Youth Mobilization Fund. In 2023, we were awarded $20,000 under the World Bank's Youth Innovation Fund through the Youth2Youth initiative.
    Our theory of change begins by addressing the root cause challenges of the current educational policies resulting in an outdated education system, inadequate upskilling of educators and limited access to STEM resources. Through our research and innovation programs we gather data to create sustainable emerging STEM programs. We actively engage stakeholders, policy makers and incorporate community perspectives into our programs. This engagement fosters dialogue and advocacy for educational reform, leading to policy changes that align the curriculum with the demands of the 4th industrial revolution. Zambian young people aged between 5 and 30 take part in Genius Academy programs like STEM camps and code camps. In the short term, our goals include reaching 100,000 learners annually through Genius Academy programs and contributing to education policy reform by implementing a comprehensive STEM curriculum. In the short term, our goals include reaching 100,000 learners annually through Genius Academy programs and contributing to education policy reform by implementing a comprehensive STEM curriculum. In the long term, we aspire to reach 6 million Zambian youth with STEM and 4th industrial revolution projects and establish Genius Research Centers for innovation. To measure our impact, we will assess user satisfaction, project efficiency, and project specifications through qualitative and quantitative evaluations. Final change is measured by a change in educational systems and incorporation of our curriculum into mainstream systems of education. This includes evaluating the proportion of learners with STEM skills, the percentage demonstrating digital literacy, and parity indices before and after program implementation. Ultimately, success for Genius Education Zambia"s Project 4th Industrial Revolution entails shaping education policies, developing a comprehensive STEM curriculum, building the capacity of educators, and actively engaging with the community.
