Rural Initiative for Science Education (RISE) in Guyana

RISE, the Rural Initiative for Science Education, offers professional development training for science teachers in rural schools. Volunteers, both from Canada and from the local area, spend two to three days at each location to conduct workshops. Participating teachers are shown how they can include new experiments in their own classrooms and how the activities are relevant to their curriculum. Spots in the training program are in very high demand, and often teachers travel for hours and give up their vacation time to attend because they believe it will help them inspire their students.

In low-resource communities, science education is primarily centred around theoretical instructions based on the textbook material. The high cost of materials and laboratory equipment often result in the lack of any opportunity for experimentation which would allow students to piece together the big picture of how science works in the real world.

Student learning can significantly be enhanced through hands-on activities and projects that put the class material in perspective and inspire kids to imagine and invent. Our team of experts has developed over 120 hands-on experiments for classrooms in chemistry, physics, biology, engineering, and electronics.

For our international teacher training program, we ensure materials used in experiments can be easily acquired locally at low cost and that the content is relevant to the local curriculum and in students’ lives.
