Funzeleo Tanzania had its first science fair in December 2015. Before exposure to Funzeleo’s experience, students presented drawings as part of their science fair.
For the first time, students applied their experience in Funzeleo’s Energy Program to showcase their projects on solar, hydro-electric, and wind power. Thanks to mentorship from Funzeleo-trained teachers, the students pulled of a unique exhibit that attracted teachers and students from neighboring schools, as well as over 300 parents and government representatives.
The Arusha Region Education Officer, who was the guest of honor, commended the students and underscored the importance of teaching math and science in a way that empowers and engages the students as the Energy Program seeks to do.
