UNIBEN team meets with school staff and students for ACTUATE

The University Staff School (USS) and the UNIBEN Demonstration Secondary School (UDSS) are main partners and stakeholders of the ACTUATE Uniben team. The team has visited both schools on 25 September 2020. Prof Chris Emokaro, Dr Mike Ajieh and Dr Andrew Amenaghawon led the discussions with the staff of USS and UDSS. The USS staff are excited at the prospect of having a biogas digester installed in the school and agreed to get the school pupils involved in activities. At UDSS the UNIBEN team were able to present to both staff and students, who have also expressed that they would like to be part of the project. Further engagement activities are planned in the near future.
