Omega in collaboration with Agastya to gift Science Center and Mobile Science Lab to Trichy Schools
Trichy, Tamil Nadu, July 11, 2018: Omega Healthcare Management Services Pvt. Ltd. in collaboration with NGO: Agastya International Foundation has launched a 'Science Centre' and a 'Mobile Science Lab (MSL)' at Syed Murthuza Govt. Higher Secondary School in Trichy today, as part of the long-term commitment of the company to the development of children.
The sponsored Science Center laboratory has been scientifically designed, to provide practical exposure to children in government schools via nearly 150+ science experiments and models covering Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Ecology and Astronomy. The laboratory will help nurture creativity among the children – and improve the quality of education – by helping teachers demonstrate practical knowledge to the children using the latest teaching protocols.
The 'Mobile Science Lab (MSL)' will travel to remote schools in and around Trichy over the year to help children of Class 5 through 10, learn and grow in the field of science and math, via 100+ hands-on science models in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Significantly, the mobile lab will offer practical lessons in science to school children in the remotest areas, which they have not had access to so far.
Launching the project, Mr. Gopi Natarajan, Co-Founder and CEO, Omega Healthcare, said, "The world is changing rapidly and a certain preparedness is essential to succeed. While there are various colleges in Trichy to make their students continuously employable, an intervention at the ground level is much required."
"Both the projects have been designed to make the two most difficult subjects (Math and Science) easy and fun among the children. Agastya Foundation is known for creating innovative teaching methods, and by making practical, hands-on science education accessible to children in rural government schools. Omega and Agastya aim to transform the future of underprivileged children."
