The Namibia University of Science and Technology has low rates of enrollment in STEM majors. This project sought to identify factors inhibiting Namibian students’ pursuit of STEM higher education through surveying university students, observing primary STEM classrooms, and interviewing primary-level educators. Our findings suggest that while STEM exposure at the primary level is important, low resource availability restricts STEM primary education in Namibia. Therefore, we developed basic STEM lessons for primary classrooms that use readily available resources.
