Principal Director, School Education, Shanavas C informed that the total value of the Maths Lab along with the micro-scale lab which consists of laboratory apparatus and materials for physics, chemistry and biology which was donated to the 6 schools in Nagaland is Rs.35.5 lakh and is being provided for free of cost by Nischals as part of its CSR in coordination with Department of School Education.
Speaking at the inauguration programme, Advisor KT Sukhalu said that while Maths and Science have been a big challenge for many students in Nagaland, the arrival of the labs to schools will definitely help the students since it has simplified the learning process.
Sukhalu also encouraged the teachers who would be trained on how to utilize the resources of the Lab to be sincere, since they will be the ones imparting the lessons to the students.
He said, “While it is meant to simplify the learning process, if it is not studied correctly it will be a bit confusing for the children and in this regard, I would like the teachers who will be taking up training to further impart it to the students to concentrate on the two-day training which is going to start from March 17.”
Highlighting that Nagaland has a very serious employment problem and that it has the highest number of government employees as per its population ratio which also means that the state government will not be in a position to provide government jobs to everyone, he said, “I feel that the world will be a bigger place for you to play if Science and Maths is your background.”
Sukhalu also exhorted the students not to limit their dreams and ambitions to one’s locality.
Founder of Nischals, Nischal Narayanam said that the company was formed on the premise of improving children’s ability to grasp, apply and retain concepts in their long-term memory by continually striving to create caring, competent and confident individuals who will be able to cope with the challenges not only in academics, but also in real life.
