Pro. Rajendra Singh Exploratory to help kids imbibe scientific temper

Nagpur: The Yuwa Zep Pratishthan is setting up a science exploratory, to be named after former RSS chief late Prof Rajendra Singh, in the city in order to infuse school kids with scientific temper. It will be launched on Saturday by RSS sah-sarkaryawah Suresh Soni in presence of chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.

The completely automated laboratory is situated at Blind Relief Association, South Ambazari Road. With this laboratory at their disposal children would have a place where science won’t be just a classroom subject but an experience in which they can explore, experiment and play freely.

The project is third in Maharashtra with the earlier two situated at Pune and Wardha. The idea of bringing it to the city is of former NMC standing committee chief Sandip Joshi who is now the president of Zep. This year at the state-level science olympiad at Mumbai, of the top 30 contestants, seven were from Pune, three were from Nagpur and and a surprising 14 from Wardha, Joshi said. All 14 were the ones who had attended the science exploratory situated at Wardha. That made Joshi seek one such lab for the city. “It has given good result in Wardha,” he said.

“The lab will have experiments from the curriculum and also good number from outside which would stimulate curiosity of students. They will learn happily through the combination of innovation, exploration and learning by doing,” he added.

Joshi said exploratory would have seven laboratories for physics, chemistry, biology, electronics, maths, science and computer. The programme will be applicable for Std 7 and 8 students who will be attending the annual session after qualifying throug an entrance exam. They may get to perform around 30-40 experiments per session.

It is natural for a municipal corporation school to be possessive of its own meagre facility and reluctant to allow students to use their laboratories until the day before their exam starts. The same kids may now have access to an automated laboratory free of cost. A fifth of the seats are to be reserved for students from NMC schools. For details on membership, students can contact Phone 0712-6500001.
