RIFI has a support center on which science teachers connect and freely interact with subject specialists. Teachers can go online, call or text for assistance in understanding teaching content, selecting effective teaching methodology, and how to carry out testing and evaluation at UNEB standards. The team also evaluates how the learners are responding to the new approach. This platform avails an opportunity for teachers from rural and urban schools to interact, and share experiences, knowledge, and skills in the different approaches of teaching science.

Other running projects
RIFI through the PPAS project produces science instructional materials. For these materials to be efficiently and effectively used, RIFI-STI trains science teachers on how best they can use them to conduct practical and learner-centered lessons.
Science Readers are unique storybooks based on the primary science curriculum from P.1-P.7. They are prepared to help and encourage pupils to develop the skill and love for reading. As they master the basics of literacy, they acquire knowledge on how to handle day-to-day challenges.
To further demonstrate the importance of science, RIFI has formed a partnership with schools to set up science projects. These projects enable learners to apply classroom knowledge and acquire skills that will help them in their daily life at home, school, and after they finish or leave
This project aims at promoting practical teaching of science subjects. RIFI develops reading, teaching, and learning materials designed by experienced teachers and consultants in the form of Teacher’s Guides and Pupil’s Books as per the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC)
