CLI, IITGn have been working with teachers and students of AMC(Ahmedabad Municipal Schools) for almost 5 months where we visit their schools every Tuesday and Thursday. Every Wednesday 100 AMC school students visit us. This is part of Project Spark. (http://initiatives.iitgn.ac.
On 28th February all the students and teachers of 274 schools exhibited their unique work. Due to the initiative, now the school now has its own science/math corner. There were a total of 548 models for the display. Apart from this, there was live model making session where children made working projects from raw materials. This feat got selected for the Limca Book of Records.
We need to trust our children and teachers, provide them with material and opportunity to work. 17 people from IITGn went to judge the events by the children. It was heartening to see the spirit of collaboration and synergy between the entire team to make this event possible. The session chief guest were Prof Sudhir Jain ( Director, IITGn ) and education minister of Gujarat – Shri Bhupendrasinh Chudasama.
Here is what Prof Sudhir Jain has to say about the event:
