InovTech STEM Center journey began way back when Jonathan Kennedy Sowah, who is the founder had enough of negative perception on science, technology, engineering and mathematics while in Senior High School back in 2015. Jonathan could not comprehend why information communication technology was termed as a co-curricular activity.

The self-made Computer Scientist, STEM Education Specialist, Speaker and Robotics Engineer with eight years’ experience noted the gap owing to the eighty percent of students with zero understanding on most of the basic concepts of computing then.
