This project works at making science-learning, often a daunting task, do-able and fun. For the first time in the their lives, children in our government schools get to do science practicals and learn by doing. We circulate what we call a ‘Lab-In-a-Box’, a complete kit of demonstration and experiments in biology, chemistry and physics among a cluster of schools in one geographic area on a fortnightly basis. Our science facilitators support the teachers in the schools in not just teaching but “doing” science.
