The destiny of this country is shaped in the classrooms and laboratories of schools, colleges and universities. India’s Curriculum Framework recognises connecting knowledge to life outside the school and notes that learning takes place both within school and outside school and seeks to design learning tasks beyond textbooks and schools. Learning without burden and removing the aura of secretiveness from science is nurtured from primary school in children with scientific abilities .

nurturing support to and a platform for schools in a dual track approach to make Science,
Mathematics and Technology exciting to children and encourage them to have an enduring
interest both inside classroom and outside classroom activities.

To enable children to become motivated and engaged in Science, Mathematics and
Technology (SMT) through observation, experimentation, inference drawing, model

To create curiosity, excitement and exploration a
It is said ” curiosity kills the cat” but then we are talking of humans. Curiosity has to be encourages in children as it leads to discoveries and inventions.
Most people who are successful in life today were once helped by someone else. In most cases, these people were supported by their teachers. For this reason, most of them are grateful for what their former teachers did for them. They do not forget how their teachers helped them and guided them in crucial turning points.
Some teachers can inspire students to work more and do their best. That’s why it’s important for every teacher to understand that they have the power to positively or negatively impact their students’ lives.
The same is true for many other successful people today. In almost all cases, you will find that the people who are successful today were once helped by someone in their past – someone who cared about them and wanted them to succeed in life.
To create curiosity, excitement and a desire for exploration among school children in Science,
Mathematics and Technology. To create a culture of thinking, inventing, tinkering and doing experiments to promote enquiry based learning in Schools. To achieve learning levels appropriate to the class of study in Science and Mathematics. and to encourage and nurture schools to be the melting pots of future innovations in the laboratories.
