Summary

A pilot project in the coastal area of Lobo, Batangas (Philippines) that supports Malabrigo public school students aimed at raising their interest in science and technology subjects that could help them become successful scientists and engineers that will build disaster-resilient communities. Grade 3 and Grade 7 students who benefit from this project will receive tablets and special learning kits that will allow them to participate in an advanced and innovative science and technology curriculum.

Challenge

Learning is disrupted in the coastal town of Lobo when powerful typhoons hit the Philippines. In 2020 alone, the town has been hit three times by typhoons causing class cancellations that minimize learning opportunities. Having to rebuild year after year, the town's situation has worsened with the COVID-19 pandemic. Lack of access to technology left learners to continue their education at home with printed modules that has proven to be more challenging and for most, often ineffective for them.

Solution

The pilot project supports the continuous learning of students by investing in technology using a reimagined science and technology curriculum that will enable them to maximize learning amid disasters and pandemics. The curriculum will also teach students how to build disaster-resilient communities while encouraging them to pursue career paths in the science and engineering fields.

Long-Term Impact

Students who pursue careers in science and engineering are more capable of developing sustainable and disaster-resilient communities. Our country needs more scientists, inventors and engineers to propel an economy that is ready for the future. By providing them better learning opportunities to learn science and technology through videos, gadgets, and teacher training, disaster-prone communities in the Philippines will be able to bounce back faster and learning will no longer be hampered.
