Camp Brethren Primary School is proud to announce the new junior secondary school science lab that has been set up as a requirement by the new Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) student curriculum here in Kenya. The lab is a state-of-the-art facility that will enable students to conduct practicals and research in a more engaging and immersive manner. The primary purpose of the new lab is to provide students with a hands-on learning experience in the sciences. Previously, students learned about scientific concepts through textbooks and lectures. However, with the new lab, students will have the opportunity to put theory into practice, which is essential in fully grasping scientific concepts.
The lab will also enable students to conduct research, which is a critical component of the CBC curriculum. The new curriculum aims to develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and research skills among students. With the new lab, students will be able to carry out experiments, collect data, and analyze their findings. This will enable them to develop a scientific mindset and foster a deeper appreciation for the sciences.
Furthermore, the new lab will enable students to develop their practical skills, which are essential in various fields, including medicine, engineering, and technology. Students will learn how to handle scientific equipment and conduct experiments in a safe and controlled environment. This will prepare them for more advanced practicals and research projects as they progress to higher levels of education.
The new junior secondary school science lab at Camp Brethren Primary School is a significant step towards enhancing the quality of education in Kenya. The lab will provide students with a hands-on learning experience, develop critical thinking and research skills, and prepare them for the future. We hope that other schools will follow suit and invest in similar facilities to improve the quality of science education in the country.
