Rwanda: New Software to Enhance Science Education

Computing

Local schools no longer have to struggle to recruit experienced science teachers to explain to students how temperature, humidity, electricity, sound are measured following the introduction of a software that enables them to perform the experiments with ease.

The MultiLab data analysis software is connected to 65 censors and is built in NOVA5000, a portable data device.

NOVA5000 is connected to computers with a wide range of functions that allows them to perform hundreds of scientific experiments in biology, chemistry, physics and environmental science.

The equipment has a touch screen and ability to collect data from up to eight sensors simultaneously. It has extensive library of science workbooks and curriculum support.

The software that was showcased yesterday at the ongoing international conference on technology in education in Kigali was developed by Fourier Systems Limited, an IT company based in Israel that operates in 50 countries.
