ABOUT

Who we are

Tanir Corporation BVI is one of the most leading companies in the promotion of Science and Technology Education in Africa. Its vision of Science and Technology promotion and enhancement in Schools has been on going for 20 years. This impact of Science and Technology friendly user initiative has also been extended from primary Schools to universities.

 

Tanir is also known as a regional leader in Technology Training and Educational Scientific installations of projects in West Africa. Its system and projects are also supported by internationally recognized team researchers and academic experts in the field of Engineering, Science and Technology, Agriculture, Maritime, Project management and Consulting.

In our 20 years of existence in Nigeria, we have equipped with our Kits and equipment, over 5,000 Primary Schools, 6,500 Secondary Schools, 52 State and Federal Polytechnics, 102 Colleges of Education, 24 Federal Universities, and 9 Technical Colleges and have set up 9 skill acquisition Centres in the country. We have equally trained over 15, 000 teachers, lecturers, instructors and technicians.

The 21st Century educational needs is achieved by the provision and installation of state-of-the-art Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) Equipment for hands-on training and skill acquisition, revamping the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics  (STEM).

What is

STEM?

STEM - SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATHEMATICS

It's the integration of 4 fields using experiments that enable and prepare students for present and future work/careers.
This integration also help students :

- to build innovation and creativity skills.
- to have the students understand how systems work,
- to have them believe in themselves that they can do better and that they can realize their ideas.

The world is facing a shortage of STEM qualified workers.
Bringing STEM education to the forefront will create massive economic and quality of life improvements.
Between 2014 and 2024 the number of STEM jobs will grow 17% (5% higher than standard jobs).
In 2020 there will be 1.4 million unfilled computer specialist job openings in the United States alone. The global unfilled openings will match that number/ U.S Dept. of Labor
The average median hourly wage of STEM jobs is 100% higher than the standard unskilled laborer.

 

SES - STEM EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Program 1
Science and

Mathematics

Program 2
Coding and Logic Algorithms

Program 3
Robotics Technology and Engineering

Program 4
Science and Robotics Projects

The first three programs are standalone programs and can be taught independently. The fourth program is based on the above three programs.

Each program is adapted to any age:

primary school, middle school and high school.

The students advance in grade levels and topics.
The products, software and courses are simple enough to start at young ages;

as the students progress in age - topics, difficulty, and technology keep evolving

with them. 

Program 1 : Science and Mathematics

Science is behind everything we see, we sense and we use.
Presently, studies are divided artificially to the fields – physics, chemistry, biology, environment.

In primary school – mainly measurements and observation
In middle school – experiments and phenomena time behavior
In high school – experiments with mathematical analysis and science laws
Science study builds observation and thinking abilities.

 

Program 2 : Coding and Logic Algorithms

In primary school
 – Mainly automatic systems and movement of robots.
 – Procedures
 – Interactive with sensors as an advanced step

In middle school
 – Procedures and interactive robots and sensors

In high school
 – High level languages and challenge exercises and competitions

Program 3 : Robotics Technology and Engineering

Robotics education is learning technology that deals with the
design, engineering, construction, operation of sensors and application of robots.
SENSE and MAKE provides students with an understanding of robotics technology and coding to enable them to participate in the most rapid growth world.

Program 4 : Science and Robotics Projects

This is the challenge stage for the students.
Every student at any age can find a project to make (solve, design, implement, program, report)
It integrates the knowledge they acquired in the previous programs and builds their creativity and innovation skills.

Between 2014 and 2024 the number of STEM jobs will grow 17% (5% higher than standard jobs).
