NNWN / Mundra, Gujarat, 2015-09-08

India’s largest integrated power company, Tata Power conducted a special ‘Udaan’ (flight) science programme on Monday under their initiative 'Shiksha Saarthi' which is a flagship education programme undertaken by Coastal Gujarat Power Limite in partnership with Pratham.

The objective of this initiative was to introduce the concept of ‘flight’ to the young minds, explain the evolution of flight and educate them on how airplanes work. The workshop aroused the children’s interest by adopting a practical approach which included making planes with wooden sticks and paper, once they understood how airplanes are designed. The Shiksha Saarthi ‘Vigyan Mitras’ supported the children by guiding them through each step and ensuring they stick to the sample design's geometric angles and sides of perfect measures, the statement said.

Speaking on this initiative, KK Sharma, ED and CEO, CGPL, stated, “Tata Power is committed to improving the quality of education in the smallest of regions in India and works towards motivating the children to develop keen understanding of their favourite subjects. These workshops have certainly helped the children learn scientific concepts through activities and experiments, which enables them to understand the topic and familiarizes them with practical applications of concepts. We firmly believe that imparting education and knowledge to a child creates a solid foundation that allows him to go out in the world and achieve his/her dreams. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the principals and students of the schools in extending their support for this initiative and participating in the event with great enthusiasm.”
