Ufahamu wa Sayari kwa Kutumia Universe in a Box

Posted on Updated on

20141015_115831Shule ya msingi Ilboru ni baadhi ya shule za kwanza kabisa nchini Tanzania kuweza kupata na kutumia vifaa vya kufundishia sayansi kutokana na programu ya UNAWE. Vifaa vya aina mbali mbali vinajulika kama Universe in a Box, kwa kupita Mwalimu Eliatosha Maleko wanafunzi wa shule hii wameweza kujifunza masomo ya sayansi kwa vitendo na kuongeza udadisi na shauku ya kufahamu zaidi.

Wanafunzi hawa na mwalimu wao hupenda kushikirisha jamii kwa kile wanachojifunza na kufanya ili kuleta shauku na changamoto katika jamii juu ya njia bora ya kujifunza sayansi. Na leo hii wanatuambia na kutuonyesha ni kwa namna gani wemeweza kujifunza kuhusu sayari na mfumo wa Jua kwa kutumia vifaa vya Universe in a Box au Ulimwengu katika Box kwa Kiswahili.

20141015_113816Katika mada hii wanafunzi wamejifunza mambo mbalimbali yaliyoko angani zikiwamo sayari zote tisa (ukijumuisha sayari ndogo ya pluto) kama inavyoonekana katika picha walizopiga pamoja na michoro waliyo nayo. Pia wameweza kufahamu umbali uliopo toka sayari moja na nyingine pamoja na muundo mzima wa sayari moja na nyingine.

Hata hivyo wanafunzi hawa wamefurahishwa sana na somo hilo la anga pamoja na vifaa walivyopewa na wafadhili, ambapo katika mada hiyo wanafunzi hawa wameelewa na wameuliza maswali mbalimbali kama vile.

Je? ukienda katika sayari ya Saturn unaweza kushika ile pete? na je hiyo pete imeundwa na nini?, kupatwa kwa Jua au mwezi kunatokeaje na nini madhara yake katika maisha ya binadamu.

Kama una ufahamu au majibu ya maswali haya basi wanafunzi na mwalimu wao wengependa kusikia toka kwako kwa kucomment kwenye mada hii hapo chini.

Kwa pamoja tunaleta sayansi kwa watoto wa Tanzania.

Posted on Updated on

Finally the long waited teachers’ and students’ collaborative and innovative learning resource of astronomy and science has landed in the land of Kilimanjaro. Thanks to all who have made donations to this project and make Tanzania benefit from it, as you can see from the video used in the campaign below the teachers and student shall open a new way of learning and teaching. We are indeed very thankful

  9. Lashaine Primary School in Monduli Arusha and
  10. Kigurunyembe Primary School in Morogoro.

Teachers from these schools have benefited from the training of using Astronomy to teach science and we treat them as ambassadors of Astronomy for Science in Tanzania. If you want to make use of the resources we can help you to get in contact with the teachers.

We shall be keeping track on the use of these boxes and share the difference they are making in Tanzania’s education system.
