There is an acute shortage of well-trained scientists of carious professions and especially the teaching profession in Uganda and in the region in general. Makerere University, through the Department of Distance Education, has a mandate to impart academic skills to a wider specific sector. In this regard, practicing science teachers and other science-based professionals would have the opportunity to pursue degree programmes without leaving their work stations for long periods.
The population explosion in secondary schools caused by Universal Primary Education (U.P.E.) demands for more Science teachers. Candidates to meet this need will be drawn from Advanced Level leavers and diploma holders in science-based professions.
The development of this country will depend on the development of Science. And such development must start now.
