Empowering Society through Practical Science
Children in rural and urban areas need to cultivate their in-built native intelligence and develop their observation skills, lab handling, analytical thinking, open mindedness, clearer problem definition and the confidence to learn science.
Vigyanrath aspires to kindle the innate intelligence of young students and will enable them to embrace a scientific temperament. Children by nature have a very inquisitive mind; the grey cells responsible for originality, native intelligence and creative thinking, need to be exercised. It mainly help children understand that there is more to science than an examination score card.
The activities in the project will involve practical sessions of hands on experience, with focus on experiment based learning. The participating children will be encouraged to directly perform simple experiments to learn science first hand. The sessions will be monitored by qualified and trained supervisors who will facilitate safe performance of the experiments. There will be several audio-visual aids and working models that will help the children understand the scientific method.
Vigyan Rath has been running successfully in rural areas of Tamil Nadu for the last 6 years, explaining science concepts through hands on experiments.
The children are encouraged to learn by doing, rather than being dependant on internet search engines. We believe in science being 99% process and 1% creativity. We would be extremely happy even if one child is inspired to traverse in the path of science and explore the unlimited opportunities.
Vigyanrath has reached 3000 rural government schools and government aided schools in rural villages of Tiruvallur, Kanchipuram, Vellore, Chennai, Ramanathapuram, Perambalur, Coimbatore corporation schools catering 10 lakh children through practical science demonstration.
We cater the connection between the real world science and teach children the science which they can apply in real life as well such as organic farming, garbage management, personal hygiene, anti-alcohol awareness, tee plantation, environment etc.
