On 22nd September’ 2017, I began my journey for Teacher Training Program for Baal Nanadanvan School at Jamshet taluka in Dahanu. Reaching this school was a tough job for me. Tribes staying nearby were of great help to reach this remote school in the midst of forest.
I met the Prinicipal and respective teachers, they had some idea about the models. They had displayed the index of the models in charts on the entry of the science lab, making it easy to access the models. Mapping of models was done as per class and section. Their efforts made me happy.
I was about to begin with the training and suddenly there was power cut. Now what to do? But, no worries, teachers were there with a substitute plan. I began training. They had some idea, so they were involved in knowing models and techniques in detail. They were playing with Puzzles and Tangram. Their interactive and fun-filled approach helped me complete the training.
While, I was moving around the school, I saw students were climbing ropes tied to a huge tree. They were learning beneath the tree. Everything here in this school was very close to nature.
I am happy that I was a part of this TTP organized with the combined efforts of STEM Learning & Sewa Sahyog Foundation and Mini Science Centre was developed at Baal Nandanvan Nisarg School, Piwdiwada, Dahanu taluka, Palghar District.
