    Abstract

    The University of South Pacific’s (USP) Emalus Campus (EC) in Vanuatu has been a Law based campus and thus not much science courses being offered. This has obviously never encouraged having a science lab that would facilitate any scientific study to be conducted at EC by any staff or researcher visiting Vanuatu. Added, at times it was understood that the mood of the nation is against in favoring science courses at schools and colleges. May be the lack of qualified teachers might be the sole reason which led to lack of interest towards science communication. Taking this typical and challenging atmosphere as an opportunity, I decided to think creatively to build from scratch. A systematic approach was planned to incorporate slow and steady science communication in the campus and at the schools. Added tireless efforts were made to reach to various ministries and departments to have first-hand information on possible research and capacity building opportunities.
