• Weekend e—Masti Pathsala is an initiative for orphanages and the underprivileged at NSS school
• IIT Bombay volunteers to teach and share experiments with NSS students
• 2-3 weeks weekends classes for orphanages and underprivileged students
Udaipur : Udaipur Based Narayan Seva Sansthan collaborated with the social body of IIT Bombay – ‘Abhuday’. The Collaboration witnessed IIT Bombay volunteer teaching and sharing experiments with the NSS students at the NSS School. The knowledge was shared through an experiential learning pattern where underprivileged students got a chance through practical learning exposure. The classes were conducted virtually / online where the volunteers from IIT Bombay teach over weekends in the ‘e-Masti Ki Pathsala’.
Prashant Agarwal, President, Narayan Seva Sansthan said, “This is an exciting initiative for us. We believe out-of-the-box learning and analytical learning abilities can be enhanced through experiential learnings alone. It is important to incorporate conceptual and experiential learning together as this would improvise the learning ability of a child. Activity-based learning helps the student to focus and understand things conceptually and not just theoretically. We are delighted that we have students from IIT Bombay willing to teach children who will become a part of a bright talent pool of the new age India.”
Subhash Choudhary (Campaign Manager of Abhyuday IIT Bombay) said, “It was fun to interact with such amazing and talented kids. Kids were quick to catch up on things and seeing their interest in learning new things, I can say all of them will do great in their lives. All the best for their bright future.”
In an hour-long class, students learned through brain teasers, puzzles, fun science quizzes, science experiments which were followed by a question and answer session. The ‘e-Masti ki Pathsala accommodated around 40-60 students and had a weekend class which was stretched over 2-3 weeks.
