“Sangari’s ActiveScience products are developed to enable teachers and learners to engage and learn science anywhere. The ActiveScience Mobile Laboratory encourages teachers and learners to gain practical experience through curriculum-aligned experiments. Teacher and learner workbooks are structured to take advantage of the learners’ natural curiosity,” said Bez Sangari, CEO Sangari SA, the wholly-owned South African learning solutions provider.
“The portable science laboratory enables learners to work independently doing their own experiments, and is priced significantly lower than setting up a formal laboratory.”
The portable unit is designed to prolong chemicals and apparatus life, little storage space is needed and the unit is lockable.
Practical experiments make use of small quantities of chemicals resulting in less wastage and easy disposal. Practicals are done with minimal teacher supervision enabling learners to work independently.
