Larsen and Toubro (L&T), as part of its Educational Development activities, launched the ‘Science-on-Wheels’ project in association with Agastya International Foundation, Kuppam (AP) for High School students studying in Government High Schools in Mysore.

The project was flagged off by K. Anand, Joint Director, Department of Public Instruction, at the Government High School premises in Hinkal here yesterday.

Speaking on the occasion, Anand advised the students to utilise the project to score good marks in the subject and come out in flying colours.

L&T has selected 20 High Schools located in Mysore Rural block and will be visiting each school on 10 different days to teach students the basic science subjects such as Biology, Physics and Chemistry. The classes will be held as per the syllabus prescribed for the students.

L&T will be presenting audio-visual shows in the basic science subjects to help students understand and gain knowledge. Two special instructors, who have been trained, will be travelling in a van to remote schools to teach the students.

Students will also be taught simple and innovative science experiments since the Government High Schools are deprived of laboratory facilities.

DDPI B.K. Basavaraju, L&T Head (Operations) John P. Zacharia, DGM (HR) K. Anantha Gowda, Senior Officer (Welfare) Santosh Shetty, Agastya International Foundation members Subramanya Nayak, Mehboob, Harish, Pradeep, Shivakumar, BEO Ramaradhya and Government High School Head Master Mahadevaswamy were present on the occasion.
