Science and Technical Schools Board formerly known as Science Schools Management Board was established in the year 1977 with the sole aim of producing qualified secondary school students for admission into tertiary institution to pursue related science and engineering courses and subsequently fulfill the manpower requirements of Kano State. Its present name came as a result of law no. 10 passed in 1982 by the then Kano State House of Assembly to include Technical Education in the extended aim of the then Kano State Government.

The Board has started with two Science Secondary Schools at Dawakin Tofa and Dawakin Kudu (The Dawaki Experiment), but now has more than fourty colleges under its care. Its headquarters was temporarily located at Kofar Mata, but had long ago been relocated again to Saidu Muhammadu Gwarzo Complex in Audu Bako Secretariat in Tarauni Local Government Area.

Our schools

Presently, the board has 38 colleges: 10 Boarding Boys schools, 10 day girls schools, 10 boarding girls schools, 10 day technical schools..
