There has been centuries Islamic world produced scientists like Alkhuwarzimi, Ibn-e-Khaldun and Bu-Ali Sina many notable scientists in the history of Islamic world. The fundamental reason of such inability of Muslim world is nothing but approach towards science.
The use of practical approaches in science teaching is fundamental, it offer opportunities to student to explore questions, participate in investigations, explore the world and engage in observation using science labs. These approaches facilitate conceptual understanding and construction of knowledge as opposed to rote memorization.
We need to go back to the history and change our science teaching methods. Summer Science Camp at Sukkur IBA Univeristy is just a stone being thrown in the silent sea to create waves which can unrest scientific minds to start thinking in scientific way.
