ABOUT US

The idea of Ola-great Multilinks Enterprises was conceived in the year 2000, but the vision became clearer when the visioner was inducted as a student of the Royal Aeronautical Society, England on the 12th June, 2000.

Aerospace Palace International, Nigeria is an arm of Ola-great Multilinks Nigeria Enterprises registered with the code IBZO34005 (Nigeria) EXO92271 (USA). The department was designed with the sole responsibility of promoting Aerospace & S.T.E.M education among the youths using the platform program is tagged 'Aerospace & S.T.E.M catch them young program for Nigerian youths'. In this vein, we are currently running some key programs in schools and colleges across the Nation.  It is our aspiration to raise quality leaders who can ‘man’ the Aerospace industry and make our sky safer by the year 2025 and be a force to be reckoned with in the Aerospace world. This has put us at the forefront of STEM education using our organization as an agent of positive change to educate and train the youths irrespective of gender or disability. To achieve this, we have certifications and partnerships with more than 20 of organizations across the world.

Recently, the US government gave us permission to start transacting businesses with US government, organisations and agencies under the following identities: DUNS Number: 561383937, NCAGE Number: SHJF7, and System Awards Management Registration: SAMAPINProd01.  Also, We have secured partnerships with relevant organisations across the world.

Our online STEM Education and Aerospace Micro-Lesson in Nigeria is an idea of Aerospace Palace Academy Nigeria founded by Ogunbiyi Abiodun. The idea was conceived on the 12th June 2000 and materialized after 17 years (2017) of deep thought and preparation. It is designed to inspire, influence, and mould the next generation of aerospace scientists and engineers by providing a series of resources and programming to teachers, students, parents, and aerospace professionals. The programs enlighten and engage our global community of future aerospace professionals by helping them learn more about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Nigeria has suffered a series of decadence in Aerospace and STEM Education, therefore our mission is to stimulate a lasting interest in the STEM disciplines, with the goal of encouraging students to pursue careers in these fields.  This is accomplished by actively involving students in the support of authentic research currently being conducted on the International Space Station (ISS) or in a NASA ground-based laboratory. Through collaboration with NASA, AIAA, Space Foundation and NASA researchers, we create educational mini-curriculum for the university, college, high school or middle school classroom that engages students as research assistants, providing data for the Principal Investigator.  

Currently, we have a collaborative relationship with several NASA or NASA supported researchers.  The program is delivered and managed via our Website (www.aerospacepalace.com.ng and www.orionsquest.org), each teacher being assigned a password protected page for management and program delivery. During our mission students briefly learn about the scientist and their research, participate in classroom experiments or activity that mirrors the research experiment on the ISS, and then do some type of an analysis and data gathering activity.   These hands-on inquiry-based activities are supported by near-real time digital and video images downlinked from orbit and provided to the classroom via our website. Also provided are real time images of a control ground experiment being conducted by BioServe Space Technologies, a NASA Research Partnership at the University of Colorado or elsewhere. Student research supports the work of the PI, while meeting the educational goals of the classroom and final student data is provided to the PI for review and, if appropriate, inclusion into research databanks. To lower the cost, we have partnered with notable organisations across the world who have helped us with resources and in the development of acceptable curriculum in the Aerospace industry and STEM education.

Moreover, in conjunction with our partners, we have developed an AIAA approved curriculum covering over 42 lessons including the following: The Earth's Hemisphere, Trash in Space, Living in Space, Large Numbers, Observing the Moon, Up, up, and Away in my Beautiful Balloon, How Long is a Day?, Orbital Dynamics, Transit of Mercury, Jackie Cochran, Gemini VIII, Air Speed, Asteroids and Dinosaurs, Spinning Ball of Water in Space, Metric Units of Measurement, How Do Airplanes Fly?, Parallax and the Size of the Solar System, NASA's Hedgehog Robot, The Mariner Project, How Long is a Year?, Images from Space, The Magnus Effect, The Rosetta Mission, Measuring the Size of the Universe, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Spot the Space Station, How High is it?, Everyday Drones, Divisibility Rules, Earth's Temporary Moons, Ride a Sounding Rocket, Earth's Weather, Navigating the Skies, Pi Day, Hanny's Voorwerp, International Day of Human Space Flight, Aerial Refueling, Sensing Weather from a Distance, Crossing the Atlantic by Air, Solar Eclipse, Errors, Hoaxes, and Just Plain Bad Science, The International Geophysical Year. This programme will take several class periods of between 1-5 hours per day and we are also adopting online lectures format to be able to reach out to those who might not have time to attend the classroom lectures.

Our AIAA approved curriculum was designed taking the following competitive advantages and our unique selling point into consideration:

 “Aerospace Palace Academy, Nigeria is where Innovation happens. The mobile App and the rocket and aircraft kits serve as the “vehicle” to reinforce Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics concepts as well as to teach valuable life skills such as teamwork, leadership, and innovative thinking.”

 

OUR GOALS & OBJECTIVES

Our primary goal is to encourage STEM education in developing countries, positively impacting young people’s education in STEM worldwide. Our STEM Innovation strives to achieve this goal by focusing on three primary objectives.

  1. To encourage and inspire young people in developing countries to pursue post-secondary education and careers in scientific and technical fields by hosting STEM workshops that foster their interest.

  2. To bring students from other developing nations to adopt our mobile application and attend our online and virtual schools to study science, technology, engineering, and mathematics wherever they are in the world.

  3. To create supplementary programs and encourage implementation of STEM programs at the schools in Nigeria and other developing countries that support these students and encourage them to view science, technology, engineering, and mathematics as a tool to instill innovative and problem-solving skills.

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our philosophy is built around three core values:

1. Innovation

To help developing nations meet the technological demands of the 21st century, providing an innovative way to foster the skills necessary to bring about the necessary changes. We use multidisciplinary STEM learning tools such as rocket kits, aircraft kits and other hands-on tools to provide students with real-world experiences that expose them to technical subjects and creative problem solving.

2. International Cooperation

People and cultures around the world can make valuable contributions to the lives of all people. When individuals from differing cultural and geographical backgrounds meet and cooperate toward common goals, they create a powerful synergy. An international exchange of diverse knowledge, skills, and cultures can cause world-changing things to happen. This exchange starts with the more advanced nations sharing their technology and skills with the developing world. The outcome is a world where all nations have a chance to prosper, benefitting both the haves and the have-nots by reducing dependence.

3. Equity and Empowerment in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)

We seek gender equality in education for females across all parts of society in every part of Nigeria and the world at large. We believe that girls have a right not only to basic education but to advanced education in STEM. To correct this all-too-common inequality, we believe we must provide resources and programs that enable, encourage, and support women’s educational opportunities in STEM and that integrate young women and young men into a mutually supportive educational environment. For these reasons, we give preference to young women in our STEM Workshops, conferences, seminars and trainings.

 

OUR VISION

Aerospace Palace Academy, Nigeria STEM Innovation is a world where intellectual, entrepreneurial, and technical talent can be fostered for the prosperity of all. This prosperity is vital to developing nations’ future economic growth and depends on education systems that support economic development while helping all students to become innovators and inventors, self-reliant and logical thinkers, and technologically proficient problem solvers.

Our Core Values

  • Hope

  • Persistence

  • Passion

  • Innovation

  • Leadership

  • Integrity

  • Equality

Each of our core values defines who we are and how we work towards our mission, goal and vision.

  1. Hope: We believe that cultural stigmas, religious restrictions, and oppressive laws prevent girls and boys in many developing countries from obtaining the education they deserve. By sharing inspiring hope in these students, we give them hope to achieve their dreams.

  2. Passion: Our teachers and educators inspire students and act as their role models: the best solution to students’ education crisis. Let’s fuel a passion for learning in all the young women and men around the world and see the real change.

  3. Persistence: We support young people willing to work hard to achieve their dreams, willing to spend the extra time and energy to succeed and willing to risk the consequences of change. Persistence is the key to the continued progress of women in society.

  4. Integrity: We demonstrate integrity toward our commitment and vision by focusing all of our efforts on creating innovative solutions and projects that address two primary concerns: economic development and gender equality.

  5. Leadership: We believe it is important to encourage students in developing nations to take leadership roles as a part of their educational journey if they are to become leaders in their communities and in their chosen professions.

  6. Innovation: We use innovative multidisciplinary STEM learning tools such as STEM K-12 resources, the rocket kits, aircraft kits, Raspberry Pi kits, and others to foster student interest in STEM fields.

  7. Equality: We believe that empowering women through STEM education can abolish gender inequality. Our vision is of a world where women receive the same educational access and opportunities as men.

 

THE PROBLEM STATEMENT

Brutal Facts: Breaking the Cycle of Poverty and Improving the Nation’s Economy

Around the globe, particularly in developing countries, women lack opportunities to obtain the education that they so desperately need and deserve. Cultural stigmas, religious restrictions, and oppressive laws keep women trapped in desperate poverty and ignorance, unable to obtain the education that might give them hope. History has shown time and again that educating girls provides benefits to the economies of nations. In many cases, changes in cultural attitudes and the legal status of women have resulted in economic benefits that break the cycle of centuries of poverty in just a single generation. Like the proverbial rising tide, the flood of newly educated citizens, inevitably lifts all boats. Lack of funds for education, access to information resources, gender discrimination, family pressure and cultural biases against women pursuing careers in STEM fields must be addressed if this inequity is to be addressed successfully.

 

STEM Education is Critical to Solving Problems in the Developing World

Lack of Opportunity for STEM Education in Developing Countries; A Dearth of Infrastructures and Development:  To grow the industrial and technological sectors of an economy, you need skilled, trained workers. UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, has stated that “Capacity in science and technology is a key element in economic and social development. Promoting science education at all educational levels, and scientific literacy in society in general, is a fundamental building block to building a country’s capacity in science and technology.” We are dedicated to contributing to scientific and technological development in developing nations.

OUR APPROACH AT AEROSPACE PALACE ACADEMY, NIGERIA

Aerospace Palace Academy, Nigeria is an innovative organization dedicated to promoting increased participation in post-secondary Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education in developing nations and underserved group in developed nations around the world. Our education programs are a direct response to the reality that our future will be built on innovation and invention and creative problem-solving. To meet this need, we collaborate with schools, governments, organizations, and philanthropists to accomplish its mission. We are committed to nurturing world-class student STEM projects that can contribute to and support technological innovation in developing nations. The STEM fields are critical to any national economy seeking to grow in a 21st century global economy.

 

Aerospace Palace Academy, Nigeria was founded by Ogunbiyi Abiodun; a young man who understands firsthand how education can positively impact one’s life and how education in STEM can bring about an immense change. Our organization is founded on the fundamental belief that giving a high-quality STEM education to young people in developing nations will bring about immense and powerful changes for the better. We believe that students in developing nations with access to STEM education will be able to obtain meaningful employment and lifelong self-sufficiency as well as foster development in their home countries.

 

STEM to Spur Infrastructure and Industrialization in Developing Countries:

The fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) are critical to any nation seeking to grow in the 21st century global economy. A robust economy will require citizens thoroughly equipped to compete in the science and technology fields. STEM-focused education responds to the reality that a nation’s future will be built its capacity for innovation and invention.

 

Our Response to the Need

The Aerospace Palace Academy’s STEM Innovation is determined to improve scientific and technological educational opportunities for students in Nigeria and other developing nations. By creating innovative solutions that help women and youths overcome barriers to education, we believe that we can slowly begin to turn the tide that has for so long held back talented, energetic, and intelligent young people who can be incredible assets to their communities, their nations, and their world.

 

Gaining Access to STEM Education Opportunities

The lack of access to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) related opportunities affects technological and industrializing a nation: as the world depends more on science and technology, the need for STEM education for all students will be critical in the coming decades. STEM disciplines are critical to any nation seeking to grow in the 21st century global economy. A robust economy requires citizens to be thoroughly equipped to compete in science and technology. STEM-focused education responds to the reality that a nation’s future will be built on its capacity for innovation and invention. Engaging education experiences in science and technology incorporate and integrate multiple disciplines, including reading, writing, math, critical thinking, team-building, and technical problem-solving. STEM projects that emphasize hands-on activities with technology integrate learning in ways that connect disciplines and relate them to each other. This effort is important because it provides a way for developing nations to spur meaningful development through STEM projects. It will encourage governments to take the steps necessary for industrialization and development, opening up endless opportunities for their young people. Our approach is a direct response to the realization that our future will be built on capacity for innovation and invention and creating problem solving.

In January 2017 we have been approved as the first organization in West Africa for the Amateur Radio on International Space Station (ARISS) to encourage STEM education in Nigeria. The event is holing in Nigeria later in the year 2018. The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) inspires students, worldwide, to pursue interests and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics through amateur radio communications opportunities with the International Space Station (ISS) on-orbit crew.  Students communicate directly with Astronauts in Space, learn about life on board the ISS and explore Earth from space through science and mathematics activities. ARISS provides opportunities for the school community (students, teachers, families and community members) to become more aware of the substantial benefits of human spaceflight and the exploration and discovery that occur on spaceflight journeys. Students have the opportunity to learn about space technologies and the technologies involved with space communications through exploration of amateur radio.

The project was designed and brought to Nigeria in order to:

  1. Inspire an interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects and in STEM careers among young people;

  2. Provide an educational opportunity for students, teachers and the general public to learn about space exploration, space technologies and satellite communications;

  3. Provide an educational opportunity for students, teachers and the general public to learn about wireless technology and radio science through Amateur Radio

  4. Provide an opportunity for Amateur Radio experimentation and evaluation of new technologies.

  5. Provide a contingency communications system for NASA and the ISS crew.

  6. Provide crew with another means to directly interact with a larger community outside the ISS, including friends and family.

Abiodun’s organisations are his sources of motivations and were created with the same objectives but using different platforms to:

  1. Inspire an interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects and in STEM careers among young people;

  2. Provide an educational opportunity for students, teachers and the general public to learn about space exploration, space technologies and satellite communications;

  3. Provide an educational opportunity for students, teachers and the general public to learn about wireless technology and radio science through Amateur Radio

  4. Provide an opportunity for Amateur Radio experimentation and evaluation of new technologies.

  5. Provide a contingency communications system for NASA and the ISS crew.

  6. Provide crew with another means to directly interact with a larger community outside the ISS, including friends and family.

AFRICAN UNION PUBLISHED OUR WORK IN THE FIRST EDITION OF THE HANDBOOK.

Forward written by

Her Excellency, Professor Sarah Anyang Agbor

Commissioner for Human Resources,

Science and Technology

This handbook documents 63 innovations in the words of the innovators themselves who were present for the Innovating Education in Africa Expo 2018. Education is undoubtedly the most important tool which we have at our disposal to realise our destiny as a prosperous, in­tegrated, peaceful Africa, driven by its own competent citizens, representing an influential force in the global arena. the Continental Education Strategy for Africa pro­vides a guiding framework for re-orienting our educa­tion systems so that education contributes to realisation of the aspirations of Agenda 2063. This requires that Education is managed and delivered with due focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics; util­ising ICT for ensuring quality and access; ensuring equi­table opportunities for all, for male and female, rich and poor, urban and rural, locals and refugees; incorporat­ing values for integrity, pan Africanism, respect for life, peaceful co-existence and responsible citizenship; pro­moting critical thinking and creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship; and taking cognisance of present and future generations. This calls for innovation in education development and delivery.

This is why this handbook is a part of a game changing process in education development in Africa. The hand­book demonstrates the potential vibrancy of the educa­tion sector in Africa. There are many innovations that are changing education quality and impact, one classroom at a time; innovations that are promoting inclusion, one special needs child at a time, one drop-out teenage mother at a time; innovations that are facilitating the production of budding entrepreneurs and inventors… and I can go on and on. It is high time that these innova­tions are highlighted for dissemination and replication, and the innovators encouraged and rewarded.

This is why the Innovating Education in Africa Expo and the momentum it builds for placing emphasis on Edu­cation innovation in Africa is unequalled in value for its potential contribution to a revitalised quality, transfor­mative and inclusive education on our continent for pro­ducing the human and intellectual capacity towards the Africa We Want.

The innovations and innovators in this first African Ed­ucation Innovations Handbook were identified through a call for submissions in preparation for the first Inno­vating Education in Africa Expo, held in Dakar in Octo­ber 2018. I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the government of Senegal for hosting this landmark event. Thanks are also due to the many Member States and Partners who came on board contributing ideas and as well as technical and financial support.

I would like to extend a bouquet of gratitude to all the departments and directorates of AUC for the various support they gave to facilitate the success of the Inno­vating Education in Africa Expo and all our stakeholders .

Sincere gratitiude to the Chairperson of the AUC, H.E. Mr. Moussa Faki Mahamat for his continous engagement in facilitating the implementation of AU-HRST mandate. Thanks to the Deputy Chairperson for his support.

This Innovations handbook should contribute to raising the visibility of identified innovative practices and prod­ucts in order that they can be supported, upscaled, rep­licated or further developed. I am pleased to note that we have in this handbook an impressive array of inno­vations and innovative ideas from over 40 African coun­tries that have the potential to serve as reference points towards changing the face of education in Africa.
