MTN Ghana through its Territory Sales Controller for Upper West, Obed Adu-Amankwah presented 140 Dex Technology science sets to the Headteacher of
Wa Model JHS, Apollas Naayele.
Presenting the package valued at eleven thousand, 200 Ghana Cedis (GH₵ 11,200.00), Mr. Adu-Amankwah indicated that the gesture was aimed “at sharpening the creativity of students in science” at the JHS level.
Territory Sales Controller for Upper West pointed out that the donation formed part of the first phase of distributing of the science sets across the country in line with MTNs principle of giving endless possibilities to the youth.
Mr. Adu-Amankwah said the success of the first phase will be a motivation for MTN and Dex Technology to continue reaching out to more schools to further encourage what he termed the practicality of teaching and learning of science.
The Marketing Manager of Dex Technology, Caleb Fugah
stated that the science sets are Dex Technologys solution to the lack of practical science education in Africa”.
According to him, we have the challenge of having access to labs in our course of practical education and therefore all our education has become quite theoretical and that science set has over 46 components to help students to do experiments and up their game(s) to become problem solving individuals”.
Mr. Fugah advised the students to be dedicated in using the science sets as a way of unearthing and polishing their talents.
The Headteacher of Wa Model JHS, Apollas Naayele and the Circuit Supervisor for Kabanye, Abass Sidik Mumuni were very grateful to the benefactors for supporting Wa Model with the package and promised that the science sets will be put to good use.
A practical session was also held for the students to have a hands-on experience in using the Dex Technology Science sets.
An Integrated Science Teacher of Wa Model JHS, Ismail Saani as part of the session, dwelt on electronic circuit and its components.
The highly elated students worked in groups to have a feel of how the science sets are utilized for experiments.
