About Ghana Science Association

The Ghana Science Association (GSA) traces its origin to the West African Science Association (WASA) which was formed in 1953 at the University College of the Gold Coast. WASA was formed to provide West African Scientist the forum to advocate the importance of Science and Technology as a necessity and bedrock for national development.

The inauguration of the GSA in 1959 broadened the scope of activities from reading of scientific papers to involvement in national and international affairs. The very first international Conference of GSA was held in Accra in 1961 with a theme “The world without the Bomb”. The Conference attracted a number of eminent Scientists from all over the world. It was this event that catapulted the young nation of Ghana into the world’s scientific arena and also moved Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of the Republic of Ghana, to adopt the Association and give it regular budgetary support from the consolidated fund. The GSA was mandated to promote, popularize and demystify science and create a scientific culture in the country. Read More
