2017 SciLeadFest Dates Set! January 5-7th 2017
The 2nd Annual Science and Leadership Festival will take place January 5th through the 7th 2017 in Kabala, Koinadugu District, Sierra Leone.
The first Science and Leadership Festival (January 2016) received an incredibly positive response from the Kabala community and its leaders. Now — to fulfill the request of our students and community – we are working to plan our second festival with even more experiments, demonstrations, and activities that allow participants to explore the the fields of biology, chemistry, ecology, engineering, and more!
