Each county has between 12-24 trainers who are mandated to train both Mathematics and Science teachers in every primary and secondary schools. The training focuses on usage of technonlogy and ICT to improve learners’ ability to solve problems using technology. “The training has also enabled teachers gain additional support ranging from in-depth calculator guides, software tools, classroom-ready materials as well as video guidance materials. Today the theory-based classes cannot solve the 21st century problem and that’s why we must as a country embrace and adapt technology within our classes,” states Njoroge. He says that CEMASTEA has been supplying robotic kits to students in secondary schools which they use during the Mathematics and Science lessons. This he says has greatly impacted on their ability to solve problems within these subjects. Students are taught on coding, robotic skills and technology. CEMASTEA has introduced new teaching materials to support teachers which has impacted the performance of students using high tech teaching equipment, such as scientific calculators. Thus, it has actively improved Mathematics and Science curriculum of secondary classes in Kenya.
