STEM Tinkering Lab Set-Up at MS Future School
Students are enthusiastically inclined to undertake basic science projects
Syed Aleemuddin is a student of MS Future School Mallepally. A fortnight ago, Aleemuddin came to know about the Stem Tinkering Lab set up in his school and was encouraged to carry out basic science projects related to modern technology through this lab. Aleemuddin is currently working on a project to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. He believes that every moment he spends in the lab is a great learning opportunity.
Mohammed Ibrahim, another passionate student like Syed Aleemuddin, said that whatever I am learning here, I will use this knowledge to invent technology that will be useful for people.
The lab has been opened for students from 21st November, in which two batches of 30 students have been trained in scientific research. Equal opportunity to participate in activities has been provided.
Stem Tinkering Lab established at MS Future School, Mallepally was inaugurated on 17th October to adapt the students with modern technologies. Now the ‘Stem Tinkering and Innovation Lab’ is fully operational and the students are enthusiastically participating in the scientific projects presented by it.
Senior Director of the Academy, Dr. Mohammed Moazzam Hussain, played an important role in making the establishment of the ‘Stem Tinkering and Innovation Lab’ a reality. He expressed his happiness seeing the students engaged in scientific projects in the STEM Lab.
Explaining the purpose of establishing this lab, Mohammad Moazzam Hussain said that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Tinker Lab is designed to develop sustainable advanced skill sets in children to provide them with access to multiple technologies and enable them to solve challenges prevalent in society.
Along with curricular education, the purpose of setting up STEM Tinkering Lab is to develop curiosity, creativity and imagination in the minds of the youth and develop skills like design mindset, computational thinking, adaptive learning, physical computing etc. This lab bestows students with the facility to do 2000 projects on their own besides learning 200 basic concepts of electronics, computer science and robotics. Students from classes Vth to Xth are being provided with an opportunity to use this lab.
Considering the results of the STEM Lab, the management of the MS Education academy has decided to introduce the labs in seven more schools this year, including three in New Delhi, three in Mumbai and one in Kanpur where tinkering labs will be established. Whereas STEM Tinkering labs will be introduced in most schools of Hyderabad from the new academic year.
