Environment and ecosystem-based STEM education are an essential means to cultivate content knowledge and critical thinking skills in students. However, there are few teaching tools or curriculum available to teachers that optimize time, space and funding in the K-12 classroom. The need for an innovative environment based STEM technology is evident in the current national employment deficit of 50,000 skilled workers in the agricultural workforce. When Malawi is used as an academic instrument, it offers a diverse array of applications to teach STEM with a biological cycle at its core and inquiry-based learning.
Our Academic Pilot
We are working to bring this technology and curriculum to both private and public schools throughout the country. we are taking a trial-based approach to understand how the system and supporting curricula perform in the classroom. Teachers are invited to apply to join our pilot and members of the community are invited to sponsor one of the classrooms with a system.
