Science-In-To-Use (SITU)

At the heart of Arusha Science School is the Science-In-To-Use (SITU) department, where students learn how to use their knowledge, skills, 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:

  • Tanzania Horticultural Association (TAHA): TAHA assists with training our staff and students in Agriculture & Nutrition.
  • International Certificate For Digital Literacy (ICDL-AFRICA): We have partnered with ICDL – AFRICA to offer internationally recognized computer literacy certificates 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
