We have provided over 100 Dext Science sets to 8 communities across our network. This has directly benefitted at least 48 schools.
One of the main barriers to engaging and practical science lessons in Ghanaian classrooms is the lack of access to science equipment in schools. This is due to the high cost of science equipment. By providing our community learning centres with the Dext Science Sets, students from all schools in beneficiary communities are able to access a mini-laboratory to conduct experiments on basic electronics and robotics.
We follow up with training for teachers and volunteers on the use the science sets. These trained volunteers then go-ahead to form and lead EduSTEM clubs and camps to improve STEM engagement in their communities.
