Until recently, science as a school subject has been unknown at the primary school level in most countries of the Third World. Even at the secondary school level where science has been taught for a number of years in Commonwealth African countries, the subject has still not made much impact at the classroom level partly because of the non-availability, inadequacy and ineffective utilisation of teaching aids and equipment.



This is a report of a seminar-workshop, which was the second in the series of such meetings on the theme of low-cost science equipment. Detailed discussions were held on the broad topics treated at the first seminar, paying special attention to the strategies for production and use of low-cost equipment in the African context.

Low-Cost Science Equipment: Strategies For Production

The subject of low-cost science equipment has occupied the minds of a large number of teachers and administrators alike ever since science education found its way into the African school system. The matter has been researched and discussed in conferences, symposia, and books. Interest in this problem derives in the first instance from the fact that money is generally in short supply.
