RISE Program in Guyana

We are excited to announce that the Rural Initiative for Science Education (RISE) program will be in Georgetown, Guyana on August 19-21!  The program aims to create a “portable” educational model for use in diverse settings without constraints of geography and equipment. Five volunteers from Toronto will be travelling to Guyana to train 100 teachers how to effectively use science experiments in their classrooms and how to construct them from local materials. The training is in collaboration with St. Stanislau College Alumni – Toronto and the Ministry of Education, Guyana.
