Transforming Education with Interactive Science

By Naomi D Fernandez | Donor Relations Executive

The Mobile Science Lab (MSL) is an innovative instrument, revolutionizing rural education by bringing fun and interactive hands-on learning to remote schools. Equipped with over 100 science models, it raises awareness about the value of science education among disadvantaged children and teachers. MSL's teaching approach aligns with the National Curriculum Framework, covering Physics, Chemistry, and Biology for Classes 5 through 9. Its engaging demonstrations, not limited to the state syllabus, aim to spark curiosity and encourage questioning. MSLs effectively organize large science fairs and engage communities through night visits, enabling parents and community members to participate in beneficial learning sessions.

Program Highlights 

  • Throughout October, November and December, a cumulative total of 147 hands-on school sessions were held, covering diverse topics such as Sound, Friction, Cell, Microscope, Combustion, Soil, Magic of Magnets, Electromagnetism, Human Body Parts, Art and Craft, Light and Mirror, Water, Light, Shadow, and Mirror, Combustion, and Respiration. This resulted in a collective student exposure of 4365.
  • The October Winter Camp, spanning 20 sessions, featured a wide range of activities, including Leadership and Talent Search Activities, as well as Indoor and Outdoor Games. This resulted in a total student exposure of 691, contributing to a rich and interactive learning experience.
  • 9 Community Visits in this quarter showcased demonstrated models, including rope vision pipe, thread, coconut bottle brush atomizer, submarine, human body, human eye, and more.
  • December saw the hosting of a Science Fair spanning four days, providing  16 Young Instructors exposure. The event drew participation from 581 students, and 80 teachers attended the fair.
  • Young Instructor Training was also conducted in the months of October and December leading to 280 student exposure and 13 teacher exposure.

Special Programs and Events:

  • GMPS Gnjuru celebrated Ramanujan's birthday on December 23, 2023, with a math program. Students created low-cost math models, emphasizing the importance of math in daily life. Videos on Ramanujan's life and discoveries were shared, contributing to an engaging celebration that highlighted the significance of mathematics.

International Soil Day Program Report

  • NHS Muttanalluru School enthusiastically celebrated International World Soil Day. The event included educational workshops, a guest speaker session on soil science, interactive displays, a tree-planting activity, and art/essay competitions. The celebration successfully instilled environmental responsibility, fostering a deeper understanding of soil conservation and eco-friendly practices among students.

Feedback

It really motivated me to learn more about light through hands-on activities such as reflection and refraction. These activities took place in the science mobile lab of Agastya.- Student Feedback 

The Agastya Foundation provides significant support to our school. Science is taught to our students every year through Agastya classes. Our students are highly interested in these classes because the teaching by Agastya instructors is excellent. In the Agastya class, our students develop a strong understanding of science and perform science activities exceptionally well. We sincerely appreciate your support. Thank you, Agastya.- Headmaster Feedback
