Technical classrooms set for high schools

Special classrooms for technical skills will be established in selected secondary schools in an effort to promote innovation among students at an early age.

Dubbed the ‘Makerspace’, students pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects will be able to innovate and enjoy hands-on approach to teaching and learning.

This will enable them to carry out activities such as coding, 3D printing, laser cutting, soldering, electronics, robot building or robotics and wood work.

The plan is being fronted by the Centre for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education in Africa (CEMASTEA), a State agency, which initially promoted science and mathematics through teacher training courses.

The centre’s director, Stephen Njoroge, said the special classrooms will enable students to share resources and knowledge, work on projects and network.

“This is a space for students with a maker mindset where they can come together and create something out of nothing and explore their own interests,” said Mr. Njoroge.
