A programme to improve on the practicality of teaching of science subjects in schools and home learning is being initiated by River flow international science teachers initiative.
Different teachers have come together to devise means to improve performance, especially in the science subjects for both primary and secondary schools.
The pilot project started in Nabingo-Wakiso District with strict supervision of teachers into the communities.
In a bid to keep pupils active and engaged during the school lockdown, River flow international science teachers initiative is engaging school-going children with learning materials for both science practicals and story books in Nabingo, Wakiso district.
Pupils from different homesteads were given science story books with main focus on malaria. The pupils later engaged in practical activities like clearing the bush around them.
Brains behind this initiative believe the story books will help boost literacy skills that will help them in their day-to-day lives.
Namatovu also notes that they always do weekly follow-ups to check on the performance of the children in the selected community.
According to River flow international science teachers initiative members, this programme will go a long way in bridging the educational gap that has been created by COVID-19, and also occupy the children by reading science story books.
