According to him, the area was the passport to many chosen careers and professions and that meant it was an integral part of one's education and development.
He said this at the annual maths and science quiz competition organized by the Boys and Girls Club of Ghana and funded by the Bunyan Family under the theme: Resuscitating the interest of learners in the study of Mathematics and Science at the basic school level; the role of the teacher.
Dr. Kutsoati noted that taking a keen interest in the subject areas at an early stage would help equip learners with the fundamental skills to navigate smoothly as they advance to higher levels in their academic endeavors.
He urged all to not pay heed to naysayers who discourage them in their academic pursuits but instead constantly strive to improve upon themselves and the knowledge acquired.
In line with the theme, he urged teachers to continue to play their crucial roles in delivering both theoretical and practical aspects of maths and science education.
“I encourage you to help these students appreciate into detail the practical aspects of what you teach them in class and how they can use the acquired knowledge to build innovative technologies for them,” he said.
Mr. Daniel Cobbold, the Mfantsiman Municipal Director of Education said science and maths education and practice has become very relevant in nation-building and development and as such must be taught with great diligence and patience.
