Omega Healthcare Management Services 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. 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.
Gopi Natarajan, Co-Founder and CEO, Omega Healthcare, said, “Both the projects have been designed to make the two most difficult subjects (Math and Science) easy and fun for children.” Narayanan V, Trichy Location Head, said, “Under this program, the laboratory at Syed Murthuza Govt. Higher Secondary School will be open for students and teachers from the nearby schools as well. Both projects will benefit around 4,000 children annually in the city and surrounding villages, who can utilize the laboratory and test innovations in the world of science.”
