Low-cost Science Teaching Equipment

Report of a Commonwealth Regional Seminar/Workshop, Nassau, Bahamas, 16–26 November 1976

image of Low-cost Science Teaching Equipment
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 first 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.

Low-Cost Science Equipment Centres II Kenya Science Equipment Production Unit

Early in the 1960s almost all the science equipment used in schools in Kenya was imported from overseas. Its high cost precluded all but a few schools from buying the necessary quantity; even then this equipment failed to arrive on time and many items tended to be inappropriate to the conditions operating in Kenya.
