PROJECT COORDINATOR – SCIENCE EDUCATION
As part of our focus on improving the quality of education in the region we are working on Project Jigyasa— Promoting science education through innovative hand-on experiences and helping the children get out of the fear of Science. In the last 2 years we have engaged with around 1000 children and developed modules which are based on using low–cost resources and contextual examples. Yet a lot needs to be done. And we are looking for passionate innovators to take this journey forward and make a difference to the lives of tribal children through science.
