Participants receive certificates upon completion of the summer Makerspace Lab programme from Zuloby Mamadfozilov, AKES Tajikistan's CEO, and the programme facilitators, Faith Harron and Allison Armstrong.

A Makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school or other facility to encourage students to design, experiment, build, and invent; as they engage in science, engineering, art, and other creative projects. Two students from Stanford University were selected to implement the Makerspace initiative at the Aga Khan Lycée in Khorog, Tajikistan.

For the final article in November’s Science and Technology theme, we pay a visit to the Aga Khan Lycée in Khorog, Tajikistan. While immersing themselves in local culture, Stanford University students Faith Harron and Allison Armstrong taught the Makerspace curriculum at the Lycée, an Aga Khan Education Service (AKES) school.
