Pupils of public junior secondary schools in rural areas of Lagos State, are to benefit from western educational methods that would assist them in overcoming difficulties associated with the understanding of complex subjects like mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology with a tool known as “Lab in a Box (Janyaa).” This is courtesy of the Rotary Club of Lagos Palmgrove Estate in collaboration with the Lagos State government.

At the launch of the project, which took place at the club’s secretariat in Palmgrove Estate, Lagos, the project chairman, who doubles as the President-elect of the club, Chandra Nalode, described the teaching aid as a practical novel way that would enhance understanding of the subjects.

“We have devised this method to create interest in learning these core subjects and in such a way that students would no longer perceive them as difficult, while the method would also enable them to remember what they have learnt for a long time. This would also positively affect their sense of reasoning.

“This system, though being launched for the first time in Africa, is used in America, Asia and India and we are targeting five schools and we believe as other clubs hook into the programme, it would spread to other schools in Lagos.

Tutor General Permanent Secretary, Education District 6, Mr. Olusanya Ebenezer Abayomi, said the students would maximally benefit from the teaching method, as it would assist their learning capability. “We know it would improve their learning and at the end of the day, those subjects including mathematics that some of them see as difficult subjects would become simple before them,” he said.

The District Governor, District 9110, Dr. Jide Akeredolu, said he believed that with the introduction of the teaching aids, a lot of students who have been seeing those subjects as difficult would have a change of mind and professors would emerge among them.
