image of Using Museums to Popularise Science and Technology

Museums of all sorts and science centres offer excellent opportunities in popularising science and technology to achieve scientific and technological literacy. Science and technology educators and teachers will particularly find this book useful in determining how they could use those facilities effectively in making teaching science and technology enjoyable and contextual. The museum curators and science centres on the other hand will be able to use the book to assist teachers in their efforts to bring relevance and fun in the learning of these subjects.



Caribbean Outreach – A Special Project

As a result of colonial heritage, the English-speaking Caribbean lacks a tradition and culture in science and technology. In the pre-independence era of most of the islands, science and technology were not considered critical elements of primary and secondary curricula. Since, at that time, our economic horizons did not extend beyond the production of primary products, education, as a whole, did not have as its major aim, the preparation of citizens with the skills and confidence to work towards the elimination of the client-depend ant status.
