Home CATEGORIES Education and Skill Training CSR: Boeing India installed a STEM lab in Shishu Mandir, Bangalore
Global aerospace company Boeing India installed a STEM Lab at Shishu Mandir, Bengaluru as part of its CSR to encourage students to develop a passion for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
With an objective to empower communities through education and providing an ideal environment with better school infrastructure, Boeing India has collaborated with Shishu Mandir. The new lab was inaugurated by Salil Gupte, President of Boeing India in the presence of Praveena Yangnambhat, Chief of Staff at Boeing India, Vandana Kumar, President and Anand, Secretory of Shishu Mandir among others.
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) through an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teaching the four disciplines as a separate module, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
Installation of the STEM lab at Shishu Mandir is a CSR initiative to ensure children get the international standard of education and provide students the skills they need to thrive in their future careers, from technical skills to critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, communication and collaboration. The lab will benefit not only to Shishu Mandir but also to students from other schools as well.
Shishu Mandir is a registered non-governmental organisation founded by Doctor Hella Mundra in 1983 to provide free and holistic education to children from impoverished backgrounds, with an emphasis on educating the girl child. For over 30 years, Shishu Mandir has been working towards creating a generation of children who are not bound by the circumstances they were born into. Shishu Mandir offers a comprehensive support system with free schooling, vocational training and higher education.
Speaking at the inauguration Vandana Kumar, President of Shishu Mandir said “We are grateful and excited to inaugurate the STEM lab at our school. The new facilities and infrastructure will allow the children to reach their true potential. The endeavour of Boeing India through their community outreach programme in mobilizing CSR funds, and their zeal in strengthening advanced educational system is laudable. I hope they carry the torch and lead other corporates in providing facilities to the needy children.” Said Praveena Yangnambhat, Chief of Staff, Boeing India, “It is an extraordinary privilege to be part of this great initiative and thrilled in installing the STEM lab at Shishu Mandir. The well-equipped STEM lab will provide teachers and students the space and resources needed to allow for personalized learning and empower students to gain the skills they need for future employability and success.”
Anand, Secretary of Shishu Mandir acknowledged Salil Gupte, President of Boeing India said, “We appreciate the generous contribution and voluntary services provided by Boeing India from past five years through physical and virtual mediums. We will always be open to partnering with Boeing India to shape a world where people and communities thrive.”
