Innovation Center

An Initiative of KVRSS – M/s Electronic Arts Partnership

(For Hands-on Learning and Visualisation of Science Concepts)
The Science Innovation Centre was developed in the KVRSS office premises with the financial support from M/s Electronic Arts, Hyderabad. The Centre has been inaugurated by Dr. K. Kasturirangan, former Chairman, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in August 2021.

Innovation Centre is an important initiative in the field of science, for hands-on activities of different modules and facilitates easy learning of concepts by students. The project aims at encouraging the students to inculcate a qualitative and hands-on learning environment and empowering under privileged schools to design creative ways to nurture the budding scientists. Centre is aimed at enhancing the education system by providing adequate infrastructure to facilitate scientific learning by the students in a friendly way.

It has been observed in our 23 years of interaction with students that many schools, either lack adequate facilities or have minimal use of the science laboratories, which may be due to various reasons. However, Science is a lively subject which requires active participation of students through hands-on experiments.

The Innovation Centre is equipped with a wide range of scientific equipment and science models for enabling demonstration and easier understanding of science concepts to school children. Many models to explain the concepts were either procured or developed in-house and a concept rack created to showcase these models.

KVRSS has developed a unique content for demonstration of each of the scientific concepts with the help of experienced scientific personnel. Videos of working of various models and the scientific concepts involved, explained by senior scientists are also being compiled.

The Centre is also designed to support school students to enhance, scale up their projects with creative thinking and with mentorship from senior scientists and experts. It can also cater to schools lacking the required lab infrastructure in supporting them to conduct experiments as per the syllabi and help children in senior classes for their science projects.

The Innovation Centre also aims to increase the curiosity levels of student by performing experiments to check and verify various statements and theories given in books by doing them on their own. This gives the students not only the pleasure of "feel and touch learning by doing" but also a chance to enjoy the subject and understand the subject easily. It is such attempts that inculcate and nurture a scientific attitude among the school children.

The infrastructure has been developed extensively and demonstrations in Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Math are held regularly on the premises for school students from 7th to 10th class. The Centre also has a well-equipped library and audio-visual facility. Students interested in doing project work, building a model based on their ideas or just curious to learn more about a concept, are welcome to come and spend time at the facility.

Science Innovation Centre is a very powerful and innovative instrument to revolutionize education and make hands-on education increasingly accessible. KVRSS is extremely keen that students from various schools utilise this opportunity, wherein KVRSS shall provide resources – by way of equipment, books, and career guidance etc. - to launch these budding scientists onto a career in science.
