Education

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics—STEM, and therefore, STEM education—are vital to our future—the future of our country, the future of our region and the future of our children. Besides, STEM is everywhere; it shapes our everyday experiences. Science is our natural world— sun, moon and stars…lands and oceans…weather, natural disasters, the diversity of nature, animals (large, small, microbial)…plants and food…the fuel that heats our homes and powers transportation…The list is almost endless. In today’s world, technology means computers and smartphones, but it goes back to television, radio, microscopes, telegraph, telescopes, the compass, and even the first wheel. Yes, engineering designs buildings, roads, and bridges, but it also tackles today’s challenges of transportation, global warming and environment-friendly machines, appliances and systems. We only have to look around to see what improvements to our lives and our homes have been engineered in the last decade alone. We encounter mathematics at the grocery store, the bank, on tax forms, in dealing with investments and the family budget. Every other STEM field depends on mathematics. STEM is important, because it pervades every aspect of our lives. Phalarope's programs are aim to improve learning experiences for your children in math and science, therefore preparing them for the future.  Currently Phalarope is starting a program in Uganda

Project- Making Science and Mathematics Practical Learning in Primary School Education (UGANDA).

The intervention proposed is to improve Math and Science learning by improving teachers's skills , curriculum and use of cost-effective teaching strategies in schools in remote areas of Uganda.   Phalarope is partnering with a local NGO  called  Kamwenge District Indigenous Development Organizations Network (KADIVDO Network).   KADIVIDO network (Kamwenge District Indigenous Voluntary Development Organizations), which is an umbrella of indigenous NGO’s, CBO’s and FBO’s based in Kamwenge district of Uganda.
