Mobile science Lab
KVRSS Mobile Science Lab (KVRSS-MSL)
An Initiative of KVRSS funded by Lalitha Varanasi Fund, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
KVRSS Mobile Science Lab is an innovative initiative in the field of science for hands-on-activities of different models and equipment to facilitate easy learning of science concepts by school students at their respective schools. It has been fabricated on a bus chassis and is equipped with all necessary equipment and models for learning science hands-on for classes 7 to 10.
The vehicle was launched on April 6, 2022 by Mrs. Sabitha Indra Reddy, Honourable Minister of Education, Telangana state. The Secretary of Education and the Director of School Education, Telangana were also present during the launch. Further, KVRSS has received permission from the Directorate of School Education to operate the vehicle in all the government schools in three districts of Telangana, viz., Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy and Medchal
The Bus is equipped with Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics models and demonstration kits, depicting various scientific concepts and equipment for various projects. The bus also has a built-in audio-visual facility
The Concept of Science is taught through demonstrations and experiments as per NCERT / State Syllabus or as required by the schools. The Sessions are planned as interactive and hands-on-learning. The audio-visual facility shall be for showing carefully curated videos, explaining the underlying theories as well as practical uses of the concepts.
The bus goes around the schools and the adjoining areas and in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad and interacts with students. Schools and registered school students who are interested may approach us to avail the facility.
The need for a science laboratory for hands-on learning with experiments and exploring the subject is felt across schools, both private and government with lack of adequate lab facilities.
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.
KVRSS has developed a unique content for demonstration of each of the scientific concepts with the help of experienced scientific personnel. Videos of the working of various models and the scientific concepts involved, explained by senior scientists are also being compiled
We are extremely keen that registered students from various schools utilise this opportunity, and we are willing to provide resources – by way of equipment, books, and career guidance etc. - to launch these budding scientists onto a career in science.
