From 6-9 November 2023, the NEMEDUSSA student club from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) visited 4 schools in Zaria, Nigeria to talk to learners about nematodes. The initiative was led by Dr. Julius Bulus from the Department of Crop Protection at ABU, who inspired and empowered the student club members to participate in this initiative. The student club members are current students of the Faculty of Agriculture at ABU. Not only did the student club members design the dissemination material, but they also presented to the schools. The visits were very well received, as many learners had never heard of nematodes before. Dr. Bulus mentioned that they had received requests from numerous schools in the area to engage with the learners and continue the visits, as there is a real need for this kind of educational initiative.
