Educate to Innovate with MindsInAction

Michael Matheus

MindsInAction is a Namibian-owned company which offers training in STEM disciplines with modules ranging from basic electronics to advanced control systems for grade 4 – 12 learners, and out-of-school youth.

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines namely: science, technology, engineering and mathematics in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, MindsInAction’s STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.

Computer-based technology has infiltrated many aspects of life and industry, yet there is little understanding of how it can be used to promote learners’ engagement, a concept receiving strong attention in higher education due to its association with a number of positive academic outcomes.

MindsInAction addresses the inadequate knowledge in learners especially in maths, science and computer studies. Their goal is to get Namibian learners from the middle of the pack in science and math to the top of the pack in the international arena.

MindsInAction also sells electronic components such as sensors and motors for DIY (do-it-yourself) projects. The company focuses on the entire talent pipeline, from cradle to career, on diversifying STEM talent across all scholars countrywide.

Their vision is to produce youth with the ability to identify problems in their societies and use STEM knowledge to offer innovative solutions, by exposing learners to lifelong learning in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), to stimulate creative thought in problem solving
