A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination and install a love for learning. – Brad Henry
Teachers play an extraordinary part in the lives of children for the formative years of their development and the importance of teachers is something that cannot be measured. They involve themselves in molding their students into responsible citizens of their country.
Within a school, if teachers are well trained and if they are intellectually alive, then only success is ensured.
And for this reason, Under CSR Initiative of Merino Laminates, Merino Laminates & STEM Learning joined hands to empower teachers with easy teaching aids. With 65 table top models of Mini Science Centre, teachers can now teach complex scientific & mathematics concepts with ease.
