Science-In-To-Use (SITU)

At the heart of Arusha Science is the Science-In-To-Use (SITU) department, where students learn how to use their skills, knowledge, and talents to become competitive innovators and entrepreneurs in the world.
To make this possible , SITU has partnered up with some organizations to accelerate the hands-on learning approach for our students. We continue to work with

  • International Certificate for Digital Literacy (ICDL): ICDL ensures students develop globally recognized research and presentation skills, demonstrably enhancing their academic performance across disciplines.
  • U.S. Embassy To Tanzania:The US Embassy’s support strengthens our STEM initiatives through their project funding programs.
  • Tanzania Horticultural Association (TAHA): TAHA assists with training our staff and students in Agriculture and Nutrition.
  • Numbers Foundation: A like-minded organizations to transform lives through exceptional mathematics education for Tanzanian children.
  • Dar Es Salaam University College of Education (DUCE)
  • International Certificate For Digital Literacy (ICDL-AFRICA): We have partnered with ICDL – AFRICA to offer internationally recognized computer literacy certificate for all students
  • Mas Africa: Through the Mas Africa group, students of the University of Aldofo Ibanez – Santiago, Chile Support SITU with annual funding for interschool workshops and projects.
  • STEM-Impact Center Nairobi: Offers material support during Inter-school Robotics workshops, supplying SITU with LEGO Education Robotics Kits.

Students move from laboratory experimentation to projects that involves subject topics put into use. Students projects are assessed  by the strength of the problem-solving techniques in the immediate community.
Furthermore students are to taught how to present and write out their projects.
As of 2022, Arusha Science has 20 ongoing projects exploring various areas from agricultural, biological, chemical, and mechanical engineering, to 3D printing, and Drone technologies.


Students participate in daily or weekly public speaking activities in and outside the classrooms. Students participate in special out-of-school events where they speak about their ideas, projects, and the importance of STEM in today’s world.

Students are required to teach their peers in the classroom to further improve their communication skills.


Students also engage in student exchange workshops where they manage everything from organizing, instructing, and demonstrating various co-curricular activities to peers from outside the school.
Furthermore, students participate in clubs that cater to their interests and talents, showcasing annually what they work on


We strive to introduce our students to the ever-changing world of technologies. Our students are exposed to 3D printing, Mixed Realities (Virtual and Augmented Realities), and Robotics workshops to get up to speed with the world.


LAST: (Life After School Tips)
Our LAST program provides short courses on soft skills and basic knowledge deemed useful before heading to university. Students are taught how to write professional emails and CVs, how to use platforms like LinkedIn, Zoom, and the importance of online certification through MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses).

AIDIM: Community outreach
AIDIM is Maasai for “I can” and it is a community outreach program where our students are paired with a pre & primary school in our community (Laroi Village, Oljoro) to teach, train and monitor learning programs.

The aim of the project is to provide productive means for A-level students to spend their time after finishing high school studies. Students will gain valuable working experience for positive future career development and University admission eligibility.

In turn, schools in the community thrive with new creative ways of teaching young people Literacy, Computer Skills, and Mathematics.

AMSA: (Africacademy Maker Space Arusha):
The STEM center operates as a training space for students across the region to learn the basics of STEM related subjects, mostly engaging in hands-on activities in Electronics.

SISI: (Skill Improvement for Staff Initiative)
SISI exists for the sole purpose of uplifting our non-teaching staff into more formal roles in society. Non-teaching staff that shows interest and promise are given the opportunity to train in computer basics and assist in office work after their normal working hours. This provides them the opportunity to contribute and earn as assistants during peak seasons when the school requires an extra hand. The staff are then welcome to apply for formal jobs should the opportunity present itself.
