Benefits For Teachers
This way of teaching not only helps students comprehend the concepts and their applications easily, but also helps in implementing it for the progress of the society as the students will be equipped with the required knowledge and skills for life. In India we have already trained over 8000+ teachers from 1900+ schools.
Some of the benefits for teachers are
- With the installation of Mini Science Centre teachers have been finding it really easy to teach science and maths conceptswith the help of plug and play exhibits as students find it a more interesting and interactive way of learning
- During the training sessions, teachers are instructed about arranging the exhibits as per the syllabus and present the different types of theories that are associated with the exhibits
- More than 175 concepts pertaining to science and maths subjects can be easily taught to different classes as per the difficulty levels
- These exhibits are easy to carry and thus they can be carried to the classrooms so that there is no impediment while teaching students
- It has also been constantly noticed that since the teachers can connect easily with students with these exhibits, their teaching time is reduced by 50 - 60%
