“I know that having hands-on experiences makes science more relevant to everyday life.
I was educated in the Philippines within a system where the main goal was to absorb the information from the textbook and your teachers.
You would copy things all day, and then there was an exam, and you would have to answer the questions from what they taught you. Sadly, the situation did not improve over the years and I want to change that. ”
