Temburli School – Rising above all the barriers

Temburli is a small village, remotely located in the Shahpur Taluka of Thane district of western Maharashtra.

Mini Science Centre in Temburli School – Temburli is a small village, remotely located in the Shahpur Taluka of Thane district of western Maharashtra. In absence of any public transportation, reaching out to this village is a big challenge. The village is yet to see full electricity and connectivity, making any means of communication a major challenge, including the otherwise ubiquitous mobile phones and television sets. This has had a significant impact on the educational amenities of the village like, keeping up with the scorching heat, communication issues, absence of well-trained teachers, etc.

Temburli has about a total of 158 students who go to the local village school. Education at Temburli school was average in absence of practical teaching methodology. Language barrier posed as a major hindrance, understanding the fundamentals could often become quite a challenge in the vernacular mediums of education. Remembering formulas and complex theories was very difficult. More often than not, kids would just end up mugging up the whole piece right off their textbooks and would be able to remember it only till their exams, and not after it.

With the STEM intervention through Mini Science Centres as part of the SS&C GlobeOp CSR activity, students were taught to use and experience a number of different models that connected with their syllabus. The teachers were trained to deliver things better, while making learning fun and by using more of practical experiments and models.

Students of Khar Danda School are now considering a career in Science

Students from the Khar Danda School have secured 2nd prize in the science fair organized under administrative officers’ school by presenting a beautifully designed working model on water cycle.

Mini Science Centre in Khar Danda School – In Khar Danda BMC School, students were not very keen in learning science as it was a subject that really gave them a tough time as they found it difficult to understand. Today, students from the same school have secured 2nd prize in the science fair organized under administrative officers’ school by presenting a beautifully designed working model on water cycle.

How did this happen? What changed the status of Science from being boring to so much more interesting?

The credit does go to Mini Science Centre, as 2 years back, STEM Learning took the school under its wing and science education in Khar Danda BMC School was given a boost by launching Mini Science Centre project in their school, as part of the JSW CSR initiative.

As part of this program, the school was provided with working models and raising the standards of the education imparted in the school. We trained the teachers to contribute to the teaching pedagogy. The results of this activity is changing the face of the school.

Lonkar School student wins the Science Fair Competition

As Mukesh got selected for district level science fair competition after endearing block level science fair competition

As Mukesh got selected for district level science fair competition after endearing block level science fair competition, it was evident that Mini Science Centre (MSC) has not only inspired him but also taken the entire concept of science education at Lonkar School to a different level altogether.

Mukesh, a hardworking 14-year old, 9th grade student from Lonkar school at Pune, strives to balance his education and work so that he can support his mother. He works as a newspaper distributor before he goes to school every morning. Mukesh is one bright, intelligent and a quick learner who loves science but due to family responsibilities, it was difficult for him to juggle between school and home.

He recalls the time when despite of having keen interest and knowledge, he never got an opportunity to participate in any competition. Also, lack of financial support from the family limited his developments too.

Mukesh gives major credit of his winning the science fair competition to Mini Science Centre (MSC) – a HSBC CSR initiative, as he thinks it is an innovative extension which makes learning easier, more experiential and less theoretical. It has helped not only him, but also other students in the school have a clearer picture of the science concepts in an interesting way, i.e. through working science models.

Mini Science Centre at Lonkar School in Pune was installed in July2016 under HSBC’s CSR initiative.

Felicitation

CSR education initiatives empower young students to thrive and create an impact on their future.

Felicitations & Rewards

Children feel encouraged when their work is appreciated and therefore, we felicitate them with rewards. This not only drives them to work harder but also boosts their confidence tremendously. In addition, Felicitation builds healthy competition among them to grow, apply themselves and give their best with each passing day. It tends to create a feeling of pride and achievement among students thus motivating them to be more productive.

Corporates reward the children as part of their CSR in education. Through such involvement, they accomplish a long-term relationship with the schools after the MSCs have been installed. This action helps strengthen the commitment of the respective corporates towards effective CSR in education, keeping their objective active for years after donating the MSCs to the schools.

Volunteer/Employment Engagement

Strategic, custom-designed and masterfully executed programs that are perfectly aligned with the CSR goals, values and thought process of corporates.

Volunteer/Employment Engagement

Volunteer/Employment Engagement is an important and integral part of the entire Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) process in education which helps build and strengthen a strong relationship between the school and donors from time to time. STEM Learning provides such customised Volunteer/Employment Engagement programs to donors for their CSR in educational activities. To reflect the thought process of individual corporates, these activities are based on wishes from the corporate donors. In this program, we offer the following activities:

Industry Engagement: The main aim of CSR in education is teaching children to implement their learnings practically for the betterment of society.
In this program, we invite experts from the donor corporates to explain the relation between school learnings and corporate businesses. This helps to enhance children’s knowledge and helps them understand products and how to use them in real-life.

Quiz: As part of their CSR in education, we help corporates organize interesting quiz competitions in schools. These competitions help build confidence among the children and develop critical thinking skills in them. Corporates put-forward a quiz in the form of interactive games based on children’s existing Math and Science syllabus.

Model Learning and Designing: This is achieved by explaining how the models work and that the scientific and mathematical models are developed to make learning easy. Children are also encouraged to design their own scientific models.

Creating a database of online reference material/videos/websites: Corporates help STEM Learning and the concerned underprivileged schools to create a database of scientific and educational reference materials that can be easily found online.Educational videos, content and websites are offered as supporting reference material.

STEM career opportunities in the Industry: The Volunteer/Employment Engagement team from the respective corporates can opt for a session with the children on the future possibilities for STEM students in the corporate world.
