Summary

The Gorblee Science laboratory project is being constructed as the only regional lab to help prepare rural junior and senior high school students. Our goal is to empower the school with a fully equipped shared regional lab to prepare students in science courses (biology, physics and chemistry) needed to obtain their school diploma. In Liberia, over 80% of schools have no functional laboratories making it very difficult to succeed in the learning.

Challenge

Nationwide, over 30,000 Seniors take the national exams before graduation each year with less than 40% passing the exams. To affirm, the former president declared the education system a "mess". Though the Ministry of Education established a goal to provide quality education, the system remains hugely under funded. Less than 10% of public schools have no functional laboratories or computer labs, therefore leaving students, particularly in rural areas unprepared for the national exams.

Solution

The Gorblee High School is centrally located to serve as the shared regional science laboratory to four (4) junior and high schools. The laboratory will be constructed and fully equipped with chemistry, biology, and Physics equipment. The lab when completed, 6th, 9th and 12 graders in those rural schools will gain access to practical lab work and theory. The opportunity will allow students to develop the skills they need to prepare for the national exams and their high school diplomas.

Long-Term Impact

The science lab project which is currently ongoing will be the only shared regional public school laboratory in the county. The lab will provide four rural public schools' students with the opportunity to gain the skills they need in the three science subjects (chemistry, biology, and physics) to make passing grades. The laboratory will also provide a better learning environment to develop student skills and prepare them for graduation and college.
