In Pakistan, the literacy of science and mathematics is deeply challenged. Most of the students don’t take interest considering it boring. All this results in downward crust and leaving the youth less scientifically literate and takes youth away from research and development culture. The main reason for considering this deploring situation is the way science and mathematics is carried out.
Pakistan Science Club partner with Alifailan has launched a campaign in government schools involving students in science and mathematics (STEM) learning via interactive hands-on method in such a way that it can trigger the lifelong curiosity among students and instigate them to adopt the method to explore.
