Low-cost Science Teaching Equipment, 3

Report of a Commonwealth Regional Seminar–Workshop, Lae, Papua New Guinea, 19–30 March 1979

image of Low-cost Science Teaching Equipment, 3
Education materials developed during the past two decades have tended to stress student participation and learning by doing. Consequently they require an adequate supply of equipment for effective implementation. Yet, to date, very little progress seems to have been made in school science teaching. One of the major reasons is the non-availability, inadequacy or non-utilisation of equipment.



This is a report of a seminar – the third and final part of a series of such meetings on the teaching of science – concerned with the means of making the knowledge of science available to as many school pupils as possible through the local production of science teaching equipment, keeping the cost as low as possible.

Science Education in Schools in Commonwealth South Pacific Countries

In order to achieve a good exchange of information at the workshop, participating countries from the South Pacific region were asked to provide country papers on science education programmes, including efforts being made to equip schools with suitable apparatus. These country reports were presented by representatives from Australia (Northern Territory), Fiji, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Tonga. The Inter-Regional representative from Guyana also provided a similar report.
