The BioVoyage Institute is entering an expansion phase. In addition to launching the new online schools, it is also offering individuals the opportunities to take a more practical approach (hands-on) to learning. These training programs relate to genetics and DNA, botany, chemistry, molecular biology, microbiology, biochemistry and biotechnology for elementary, middle, high school, university and adult learners. The goal of The Institute is to encourage everyone to engage in new innovations; arouse curiosity and promote further learning in the aforementioned fields of science.
Why is hands-on practical training essential? Historically, certain individuals are more inclined towards practical learning than theoretical. This approach to learning facilitates the learner to concentrate more on product design, product development, experimentation, and finding solutions to real life challenges. Studies have shown that hands-on practical training increases the retention capacity of the learners and engages them actively in the process of learning (lesser distractions). It stimulates learning, helps the learner to develop critical reasoning skills, become a better problem solver, more creative and perform better in examinations. According to high school student Meghan Farrell, “Biology is complicated enough, and I’m a visual learner, so if I can’t see something, it’s hard to do well on tests”. (1)
It is a fact that developing countries do not have the research or educational infrastructure to accommodate nor support their natural geniuses. Certainly, these geniuses do not need clas
