This week, our Rotary team shifted from teaching science to sixth-grade students to teaching high school science teachers how to use practical demonstrations in their biology, chemistry and physics classes.
This effort supports a new directive from the Senegalese Department of Education to include more laboratory experience and demonstrations in the high school science classes. Senegal has set a goal to have 80 percent of its high school students enrolled in science classes by 2025.
