The service-learning method is a high-impact technique for students in which learning happens via service and reflection on real-world objectives. However, this technique must overcome several obstacles, including time constraints, student receptivity, money constraints, and collaboration partners. This study aims to present a model for applying the service-learning approach to education. The science park can be seen as a third partner in the model to fulfill a gap between university and company. The findings suggest that this learning paradigm benefits all stakeholders.
