History

Dr. Bbosa Science: Team leader

Information


Over the years, a large number of students have been failing Sciences Subjects due to negative attitude they have towards the discipline. Before the government of Uganda introduced the system that made science subjects compulsory in 2008, only 30% of the students were taking sciences up to senior four and only half of these were able to pass them. As a result, Uganda lacks qualified professionals such as medical officers, engineers and Science teachers. This is worsened as most of the available professionals fly out the country for greener pastures. Lack of Science Teachers in the system further contributes to the poor performance of the science subjects

Even after making sciences compulsory up to senior four, the failure rates are still very high that the number of students joining A-level with science subject combinations is still very low. For instance, only 8% of the students that sat for Uganda Advanced certificate of Education (UACE) exams did chemistry and chemistry is the key subject in most science combinations.  It is against this background that,the science teachers of The Science Foundation College at Kiwanga Mukono District (registration number of the school is PSS/T/49) in 2016 initiated a club (Digital Teachers) to promote science subjects in the country through, Print, Videos and Music. This is after realizing that most of the youths like watching movies, listening to music and using internet.

  • A pilot trial at The Science Foundation College has shown that teaching using videos lead to marked improvement in the practical subjects.
  • Development of Videos gives time to select the most relevant learning experiences including those that cannot be brought to or obtained in the class room environment. This makes videos to teach as they are entertaining.
  • Replaying the science videos over and over enable students to grasp important scientific principles.
  • Videos can be watched anywhere any time including use of smart phones.
  • Video may be developed in the local language.
  • Digitalteachers website provides subject notes, reference material, exams, making guide to those students that can not afford text book and reference material.

The Digital teachers in conjunction with The Science Foundation College are determined to attract students to science subjects through Print, Science videos and Music. This will be done through attracting and interesting more science teachers into the club and where need arise; to move from school to schools at all levels creating clubs of similar nature. This will promote science from the grass root through cultivating interest for sciences into the science teachers and their students.

    But some subjects like ICT practical guides should also be put into extreme consideration

    Thanks for revealing your ideas. The first thing is that individuals have a choice between fed student loan along with a private student loan where it really is easier to decide on student loan online debt consolidation than in the federal education loan.

    Furthermore, i believe that mesothelioma cancer is a unusual form of melanoma that is often found in those people previously subjected to asbestos. Cancerous tissues form inside mesothelium, which is a shielding lining that covers the majority of the body’s internal organs. These cells typically form in the lining with the lungs, tummy, or the sac which encircles one’s heart. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

    One other issue is that if you are in a situation where you would not have a cosigner then you may genuinely wish to try to wear out all of your school funding options. You can find many awards and other scholarships or grants that will provide you with funds that can help with school expenses. Thanks for the post.
