Project Description

In 2013, the 'Life-Lab Science Program' was initiated by WOSCA to help underprivileged children in India gain experiences in science. With 440 million children in India going to school, only 20% have access to experiential learning in classrooms. Infrastructure facility given to underprivileged schools is usually not utilized the way it is supposed to be. We need teachers who are motivated and well-qualified to improve the education system. Life-Lab science program has been designed to create a stress-free environment and deepen the relationship between teachers and students in the classroom. It trains and motivates teachers to conduct an experiential and inquiry-based class using science teaching-learning aids. A meaningful relationship between these stakeholders has the potential to increase the levels of Fun and Engagement in children in the classroom, creating an environment of curiosity and inquisitiveness towards scientific concepts.The program aims to leverage enhanced fun and engagement in the classroom to improve learning outcomes and foster an approach towards real-life problem solving and higher creativity of children.Currently, program has been working in schools across 6 states and covered approximately 6.5 lakh children and focuses to serve underprivileged children. The majority of the population are from urban slums from cities like Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, and Delhi NCR; and rural, tribal belts, and community centers across Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Telengana and Andhra Pradesh.
