Addis Ababa Science Museum

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Located on the campus of Addis Ababa Science Technology University (AASTU), the Science Museum at Addis Ababa Science and Technology University (AASM) offers access to interactive exhibits that encourage visitors to engage independently with both familiar and novel subject matter. This solidifies previously gained knowledge while inspiring visitors young and old to explore unfamiliar topics more readily.

STEM Synergy conceived of, designed, and built this facility, along with 2 more under construction.
