IndiaCSR News Network

MUMBAI: STEM Learning, a pioneer in introducing and installing mini science centres at Stem-Science-Center-Logoschools in India, was conceptualized with an aim to inculcate liking of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at the school level. These interactive working models help students in identifying and experiencing fundamental concepts which they learn from books, making studying more practical.

More than 4,50,000 students in India have benefited from our Science Centres in just 3 years,” said Ashutosh Pandit, Managing Director, STEM Learning.

“We have a Mini Science Centre in our school now. Usually, we used to study science laws only from textbooks, but today we have seen them practically. Now we can study in a much better way. This will help us in our higher standards,” says a student from Prabhadevi BMC School, Mumbai.

Till date, STEM Learning has setup over 40 Mega Science Centres and 325+ Mini Science Centres in urban and rural India.

“Earlier teaching only theory would not actually make the students understand the experiments. But after this practical approach, they understand things faster and better,” said a Science Teacher from Ankleshwar, Gujarat.

STEM Learning is an ISO 9000-2008 certified company and is certified by Maharashtra Education Board MSCERT.

“This initiative is best to develop a scientific outlook in students. And at last people forget what they hear, remember for a short while what they see, but what a person experiences touches his mind and stays with him forever. When theory is connected to practical learning, a person never forgets what he learns. Moreover, it is moving equipment and can be taken into classrooms thus reaching maximum students,” said Vinod Shelar, Chairman, BMC Education Committee.

This novel approach to promote education has also opened up new avenues for corporates. They can sponsor such Mini Science Centres at Government Schools, Ashram Schools, Kendriya Vidyalaya and Navodaya Vidyalaya and local self-governing rural schools as a part of their CSR initiative.

Currently, STEM Learning has tied up with and is setting up Mini Science Centres under CSR programs of Lupin Pharma, JSW Foundation, Bank of Baroda, L&T Infotech, UltraTech Cement, Mazagon Dock Limited, to name a few.

“Our mission is to serve 1 million students from rural as well as urban areas of India with our unique product. We hold Equality in Education at top and believe in contributing to the under privileged of the society,” added Ashutosh.

With a vision to nurture tomorrow’s scientists, STEM Learning is all set to embark on its journey of making quality STEM education available to all.
