The Mini Science Centres are a powerful and innovative tool to revolutionise science education
Goa Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant inaugurated a Mini Science Centre (MSC) installed at a Govt School Navelim – Bicholim.
Developed in partnership with STEM Learning, the Mini Science Centres now house innovative models, experiments and instruments to enhance the aptitude and skills of students in learning science and mathematics in effective and interesting ways.
STEM Learning has 80 interactive Math and Science working models and has so far reached out to 10,00,000 students.
With a mission ‘To make the world a brighter place’, STEM Learning aspires to provide innovative solutions, which change the lives of people for the better. Science education in India is facing several challenges today. The basic problem that has persisted since independence is our inability to provide schools with labs and equipment to be used while teaching science. The Mini Science Centres are a powerful and innovative tool to revolutionise science education and make it increasingly accessible.
In continuation with its efforts to promote science education in India, the Mini Science Centres established by STEM Learning aim to enhance awareness among teachers and students about the value of learning, with a special focus on science and mathematics. The initiative also encompasses a unique teachers’ training programme and facility maintenance for two years.
