STEM / ROBOTICS WORKSHOP

‘Enrich, Design, Engage, and Integrate: 4 Keys to Education Reform through STEM’ is the principle behind introducing the STEM education in classes IV and V. The teachers from all four locations participated enthusiastically in two day workshop. The centre hub of the VC training was DPS Patna. The trainer Ms Meena Vyas from Techtronics Education India conducted the module using the kit 9686, 9688 and 9641 i.e. advanced simple machines, renewable energy and pneumatics kit.
