Reinforcing its commitment towards the holistic development of the society, Mysuru Warriors, the KPL team owned by NR Group, in association with Kalisu Foundation, built Mysuru’s first comprehensive science lab “Vesto Pro Science Lab” at the Kuvempunagar Government School in the city on Friday.
Kalisu Foundation, along with Mysuru Warriors, played a pivotal role in conceptualizing the Pro Science Lab. The new addition in the school was inaugurated by Arjun Ranga, owner, Mysuru Warriors and Managing Director, Cycle Pure Agarbathies and was handed over to Srikanthashastri, Principal, Kuvempunagar and the school authorities in the presence of Raju M, BEO, South Zone, and Balachandar, convenor, KSCA.
Commenting on the initiative, Arjun Ranga said “We at Cycle Pure Agarbathies believe that education is the core for growth and development of the society. Hence, we largely support the initiatives that encourage knowledge and learning. We are glad to be a catalyst in bringing about a change in the lives of the children and thereby build a strong future for our country”
Vesto Pro-Science is not a conventional science lab with age-old conventional models, but one of its kinds ‘Comprehensive Hands-On Science Learning Lab’. The lab makes science learning experiential, fun and productive. The study by “National Focus Group” (NCERT) on ‘Teaching and Learning of Science’ has clearly stated that, science should be taught using activities and experiments. The Pro-Science program focuses on the same point.Pro-Science Lab program will be offered to the students of 5th, 6th and 7th standard. The Lab intends to make Science learning hands-on thereby increasing the productivity of learning.
The initiative will enable students to access various electronics and mechanical kits to boost the scientific temperament and innovation mindset in students. Each group of 4 students will have an electronic kit, Mechanical Kit and special equipment and tool kits. It will help students in building thought provoking and interesting working projects. It will also allow them to relate to the models, concepts and principles of Science mentioned in the text books. The lab will enable concrete evaluation of different physical parameters of the models through observation and tabulation and would also encourage them to apply the concepts in their real-life scenarios.
Speaking on the occasion, Srikanthashastri said, “The wonderful initiative of Pro Science Lab will not only help kids in comprehending the models and theories practically, but would also help them in understating the application of it in a better way.We congratulate Mysuru Warriors and Kalisu Foundation for providing the students with this amenity”.
