New Approach Primary Science Kit

The New Approach Primary Science kit is a Mini/mobile Laboratory comprised of teaching-learning apparatus that the teacher would find hard to improvise. The kit is curriculum-based and it includes modules necessary for learning science practically like the microscope, pulleys, magnetic system, electric kit, among others. The kit includes modules of the human body organs and a system like the heart, skeleton, eye, reproductive and respiratory system among others. These modules give the learner a clear picture of what the actual organ or system is as well as an opportunity to promote creativity.

The New Approach Primary Science Kit is evaluated and recommended by NCDC and the Ministry of Education and Sports.

Teachers Capacity Building

Teachers Capacity Building

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.

Literacy for Lifelong Learning(3Ls)

Literacy for Lifelong Learning(3Ls)

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.

Self-help Science Projects

Self-help Science Projects

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

Promoting a Practical Approach to Science(PPAS)

Promoting a Practical Approach to Science(PPAS)

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)
