WE SUPPORT SCIENCE TEACHERS TO PROVIDE A HIGH-QUALITY EDUCATION TO THEIR STUDENTS.
The short-term goal of SeedScience consists of training teachers to apply a teaching method aimed to make 10-18 years old students reason through hands-on activities related to what happens in the world around them.
The training lasts about three months. After this period, teachers possess a different point of view on teaching and are better able to develop and propose science experiments and hands-on activities in general.
A network of high-level science teachers is then created. Some of them become SeedScience trainers, we call them ScienceSeeders. A few even become project leaders, improving project sustainability in all aspects.
HOW WE STARTED
SeedScience is a consequence of a volunteering experience that occurred in Ghana in 2016. SeedScience president Michele Raggio collaborated with a local teacher to perform science experiments at a primary school in Kasoa, Ghana. Students and teachers really benefited from it and they continued performing experiments with the leftover materials. SeedScience was born from that experience.
