With the rapid global increase in the prevalence of tuberculosis, health promotion is crucial to raise communal health awareness. This service-learning health promotion activity aimed to increase awareness of TB amongst school learners in attendance at the 2016 National Science Festival. A computer-based pre- and post-intervention quiz, an educational poster, an interactive word search game, and a take-home information leaflet were utilized in a health promotion exhibit.

Junior and senior school learners who participated in the exhibit showed significant improvements in their post-educational intervention scores. The exhibit was effective as a preliminary measure in reinforcing health information and raising awareness.
