For labs that will be used by students in Grade 7, primary schools have chosen more affordable options.
To change the structures, schools nationwide have teamed up with a state body.
The process has been implemented by the School Equipment Production Unit (SEPU) in a number of schools.
The procedure was still in progress when The Star visited Muguga Green Primary School in Westlands, one of the schools.
According to James Ndiritu, the school's headteacher, "We have 81 Grade 7 students, and once modified, the lab can handle 40 learners per class."
The building was an ancient, abandoned lab with cabinets, a metal sink, and two doors.
At the teachers' workstation, the production section has put two contemporary black sinks with useful taps.
Three white tables served as the centerpiece, and three new wooden doors were added to the storage cases.
The group also put up two fire outlets at each of the workstations.
Some of the institutions, according to SEPU, are Precious Blood Riruta, The Orchard School in Kitengela, Nabeel Integrated School in Tala, and Komboyoo Girls Secondary School.
The government has gotten funding in the form of grants that will aid in building laboratories in elementary schools.
Computer education The students in Grade 7 will use the labs, according to Ezekiel Machogu.
"The funds will be used to build facilities. For JSS, we need labs, Machogu stated last month.
He oversaw the book dispersal and admission of Grade 7 students at Nairobi Primary Junior Secondary School.
According to him, 25% of the capitation amounts to $4,000 for each pupil.
"Funds from capitation will help build labs in part."
