Rise high public school is not for profit school in a small village of Aurangabad, Bihar; one of poorest districts of India. With very limited resources, our kids have done very well. We will start class 8th in April 2018, and we need $15000 to build(Estimated Cost: $10000, 500 sq.ft) and furnish((Estimated Cost: $5000) composite science laboratory for them. The running cost (1 attendant+supplies) of lab is $300 per month.
With the experiential learning approach, our students in this poor village have shown the tremendous progress that is visible in their excellent performance in National and International SOF Olympiads. One key infrastructure that we lack is a good science lab which can make science very interesting and help students grasp the concepts really well. In its absence, their learning remains theoretical and incomplete in some areas and puts them on weaker foot as compared to their urban peers
This project would make a much-needed science laboratory available to 500+ students in this poor village. Having a laboratory would allow the students to do hands-on which is a key to grasping the concepts well. It would allow the students to explore on their own and make them interested in science. This would ensure that these 500+ students do not lag behind their urban counterpart
Combining classroom teaching with science laboratory experiments helps in developing scientific learning among students, and in cultivating deeper and profound interest in the field. This would give a lot of confidence to the students from the rural background and eventually help in preparing the next generation of scientists, doctors, and engineers from the villages. The school is expected to support 2400 kids at a time in long term, and this investment will eventually help them all
