The Government of Kenya has today launched Young Scientist Kenya (YSK) in collaboration with the Embassy of Ireland and BLAZE youth platform by Safaricom. YSK, a unique platform in East Africa for young people across Kenya to demonstrate and showcase their scientific talents, is based on the British Telecom Young Scientist and Technologist Exhibitions (BT – YTSE) of Ireland founded in the 1960s by Dr. Tony Scott and the late Fr. Tom Burke. BLAZE by Safaricom will offer YSK support to mobilise and enroll students in Kenya for the pilot phase to be held in 10 counties over the next one year before it is rolled out as a national programme.
