Mt. Kinangop Girls’ Secondary held their third Annual Science Week from 1st to 6th November 2021. The theme of the science week was ‘Enhancing Mastery of Content through Practice’. The week was marked with numerous activities designed to provide active learning experiences for the students. These included peer teaching, group discussions, making teaching & learning aid models, symposiums, quick-fire sessions and STEM-based edutainment. Learners were expected to develop skills in communication & collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, problem-solving, and self-efficacy.

During the closing ceremony, the Chief Guest Director CEMASTEA, Mrs Jacinta L. Akatsa, represented by Deputy Director Mrs Lydia Muriithi, affirmed that the knowledge and skills learnt will be helpful beyond school and will make them more adaptable and competitive in future. She was delighted by the demonstration of skills by the learners. She informed the learners that CEMASTEA functions to assist schools in becoming better in STEM education and promoting innovations that solve real-life problems.

In her remarks, senior Principal Mrs Jane N. Njoga noted that we live in an ever-changing world with emerging challenges that require creativity and innovativeness in home-grown solutions. She emphasized the importance of learners aspiring to be scientists to be curious, attentive, and able to do research. In addition, she reiterated that learners should aspire to apply the knowledge learned to solve societal problems. She thanked the teachers for coming up with the noble idea and promised to make the event part of the school culture. CEMASTEA donated a science kit to the school.
