As a science education volunteer, I go around five schools in my assigned zone including Lisumbwi Secondary School which is my duty school and I usually support science classes and experiments.
Recently, I conducted the first experiment class for the fourth grade students at one of schools in my zone. The preparation was not easy because there was no material at the school so that I carried lab ware and reagent from my duty school and cut plastic bottles for beaker and got water from well.
It was the first experiment for the students. There was excitement and a lot of arguments about the experiment arouse amongst the students because a result of experiment didn't come out as they had expected. I felt this showed their interest towards the lessons and experiments.
Upon returning to my workplace, one of the students expressed her appreciation about the lesson on the day. She said with big smiles "It was very fun today. When will you come again?" I was overflowed with delight at the moment and encouraged further to deliver the best lessons and experiments to the students.
Locally available materials are used for experiment tools
Students are usually very curious about their first experiment
Students are always excited to see the experiment results
