Abstract

This paper explores the concept of science consciousness in the national life of African states. The publics in African states interact with new creations of science in the form of products imported from the developed countries, yet no one cares to communicate to these publics how such artefacts were arrived at – the science in simplified language behind such products as well as the intrigues (political, social, and even religious) that played out before such artifacts became reality. In this way, the general public in Africa does not flow with the science and politics of science behind the emergence of technological artefacts and new inventions which are sold to them as finished products. Each artifact of science tells a story that expands our science awareness and inspires the average mind.
