Implementation

Over a period of 4 months (August – November 2020), Graduate Students of IIT Madras (Mentors) provided the class IX and X rural school students Everyday Science, Device-Based Science, Communication Skills, Google Slides Technical Training, Cognitive and Non-Cognitive Teaching Skills Training. Using inspiring stories, fun games, quiz, interactive presentations as the means to motivate the children, so far around 30 Mentors have mentored over 70 rural students. We hope to help more students from remote locations until schools reopen for regular visits.
