Renewed Calls for Mobile Science Laboratories in Education

President of the Ghana Association of Science Teachers (GAST), has renewed calls on government to establish mobile Science laboratories in less endowed schools across the country. Simon Addae-Conutsey is convinced that such an intervention will boost science education which is crucial to technological advancement.

The GAST President was addressing the association’s 58th Annual General Meeting in Tamale under the theme, “Science and Technology: a solution to climate change and food security.” He bemoaned the Ministry of Science, Environment and Innovation’s decision to cut off science teachers from participating in international conferences and seminars on science education. He said the decision has demoralized science teachers who considered the international conferences and seminars an eye opener leading to their performance in the classroom.
