Dear Friends,

“If you studied a textbook on driving, how well would you be able to drive a car?”

This question, raised at the inauguration of the science teacher training institute in Hyderabad, drives home the strong need for practical experience in addition to theory in the Indian education system.

Tech Mahindra Foundation and the Sahayata Trust have together set up the training program centred around the idea that science teachers should ‘Do – Learn – Teach’ i.e. that a teacher should ‘Do’ in order to ‘Learn’ and only then ‘Teach’.

Within the old city limits of Hyderabad, not very far from the Char Minar, is a densely populated conservative neighborhood. And it is right here that seeds of innovation are being sown thanks to the recently-launched teacher training program.

The Academy itself is full of quirky surprises, like the test-tube chandelier shown here. We’ve also created ‘science kits’ that teachers can take back to their schools to use in classrooms.

Here’s a short video to give you a glimpse of the purpose and passion that drives this mission!

Warm Regards,
Tech Mahindra Foundation
