Science Events Cameroon is a joint initiative by PhD Students and Computer Engineers from Cameroon to promote learning in Science, Technology, and Engineering.

1. STEM Bootcamp

This event aims to inspire young students (13-16 year olds) to opt for STEM vocations through hands-on projects, with a special focus on computer programming and robotics. It is co-organized by Rahimatou Daouda and Peterson Yuhala.

2. Computer Science Workshops and Women in CS session

This event promotes computer science education in Cameroon via presentations and workshops, and features sessions to promote women in computer science. It is done within the framework of the Machine Learning, Network, System and Security (MLNS2) project by Inria and CNRS, and is co-organized by Stella Bitchebe, Josiane Kouam, Jordan Gounou, and Nel Nanvou.
