What others say about us
“The government of Tanzania is encouraging industrialisation across the country, yet increasing numbers of students find themselves unemployed after university. This makes business skills important, now more than ever, as graduates could create their own jobs. The IOP has been a great support in achieving this. The Future STEM Business Leaders programme is fantastic. "
Dr Najat Mohammed Head of Physics at the University of Dar es Salaam
“The first time I was approached to take part in the Future STEM Business Leaders programme as a business mentor I was so excited, however I could not comprehend how physics could connect to business, until the IOP changed my mind. This programme inspires the next generation and is an awesome contribution to our society. Being a part of the IOP’s vision of physics has been, and continues to be, a very interesting journey! "

“As a result of this programme I will be able to engage myself in innovation to improve our technology, and I will spread the impact of this IOP programme to many other people so that it can help change the education system in Tanzania."
“As a business mentor I support students through their learning process and I was humbled to witness their growth throughout the programme. It is fantastic opportunity for students to learn new skills but also prepare them, and our country, for the future."
