Noida, Feb 28 (IEBusiness) To commemorate National Science Day, Agastya International Foundation (Agastya) and Honeywell India on Thursday announced the expansion of the Honeywell Science Experience.
The programme is an experiential science education initiative for middle and high school students and teachers of government schools in Noida and Faridabad.
During the programme’s expansion event at Rajkiya Balika Inter College, students learned and later explained complex scientific concepts such as reflection and refraction, eclipse, and inertia of motion, through simple experiments.
“Since the programme’s launch in 2016, Honeywell Hometown Solutions India Foundation (HHSIF), the company’s not-for-profit entity, has supported 25 science centers, 35 mobile science labs, and 3,000 student mentors, benefiting more than 1,35,000 students and 783 teachers in Delhi, Gurugram, Pune, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, Madurai, Mysore, and now Noida and Faridabad,” a statement here said.
The programme’s uniquely scalable, hands-on teaching/learning method fosters child and teacher participation, encourages curiosity, and boosts experiential science education.
Sai Chandrasekhar, Chief of Operations, Agastya said, “Agastya is pleased to partner with Honeywell to make learning accessible to the bright young children from underprivileged communities.”
Mike Banach, General Manager, Honeywell UOP India said, “It is gratifying to see the transformation that the Honeywell Science Experience has enabled among students in previous schools. We are glad to bring this programme to students in Noida and Faridabad.”
