Kit-based Education of Science (Science on Wheels)


Goal :

Science on Wheels (SOW) aims to improve science education in schools and inculcate the spirit of scientific temperament in the students.


Objective


  • To generate inquisitiveness and curiosity among children towards science
  • To develop interest and aptitude for science
  • To provide hands-on experience to learn science and its approaches

         

The major reason behind the success of this program is its focus on active learning rather than traditional rote system.

So far the programme has benefited 990 schools and more than 1,50,000 students of the interior rural area of the region. Over the period of time, we aim to engage over 3 Lacs students from nearly 2000 Government & Trust based Primary Schools of the region.


In 2014, we prepared and published 'Science Experiments Reference Book' containing 240 experiments. It covers various principles on the subjects of Biology, Physics & Chemistry for standard VI, VII & VIII with complete details of the scientific experiments. Color photographs and step-by-step explanation in the book have endeared it to students and teachers alike.
