Volunteering at Jana Uddhar School produced results! One of the science teachers I worked with successfully went on to use her imagination and creativity to create solutions to problems of lack of resources, which, I would like to believe, I was a small inspiration for!
Blog post about Science teacher education program I am running and write-up about my experience working with teachers in Nepal.
Why in Nepal we must teach our children to THINK and how we can do that in Science.
Teachers in Nepal can vastly improve Science teaching just by changing the way they teach. And for that, they don't need fancy buildings and the latest resources and gadgets. Just using what's available at the school and what is accessible locally, science can be brought alive and made relevant to the students, thereby improving the learning outcomes of the students.
We are making gains, we are making progress...albeit small and slowly, but some day will amount to something substantial...that's what I am hoping anyway!
