Development of policies, strategies and action plans on industrial involvement for Kenya’s Nuclear Programme
The Institute of Nuclear Science & Technology participated in a workshop organised by the Kenya Nuclear Electricity Board to develop policies and strategies to prepare and facilitate the implementation of a roadmap for Kenya’s Nuclear Program (NPP). The workshop, held at Ole Sereni Hotel, Nairobi between 6th-9th 2017, was facilitated by experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The goal of the workshop was to promote the participation of local industries in supplies to nuclear plants for the economic benefit of the country
The number of students enrolling for science and technology degree courses in Kenyan Universities remains low despite a majority of girls having done very well in their KCSE exams. The number of those involved in research is even much smaller as you move to graduate degree programmes. The low-level of their involvement in research and science is in most cases attributed to cultural expectations where women are expected to take care of the family and household responsibilities. Science courses are viewed as a masculine subject which should be taken by men only. The Institute of Nuclear Science & Technology, through the funding of International Science Program (ISP), usually organise seminars and talks to sensitise communities on the importance of science and encourage women to take up science courses. On 16th June 2017, a team of Women in Physical Sciences from the Institute of Nuclear Science & Technology, University of Nairobi, attended a career day in Ndumberi Girls, Kiambu and gave motivational talks to encourage the girls to take up courses in Physical Sciences.
