It will also build critical thinking, decision-making, and problem-solving capabilities among students. The program will train the teachers to arm them with the right resources, skills, and knowledge on STEM subjects to help them enhance the learning experience of children. It also has several on-ground engagement initiatives with local communities and families on the importance of STEM education and related careers. Manish Bhatnagar, Managing Director, SKF India Ltd., said, As one of the fastest growing economies, India is adopting technology at an ever-increasing pace across all spheres of industry and society.

With the Lab-on-a-Bike’ initiative, we’re inspiring the students to enhance their learnings in STEM subjects and contributing to building a future talent pipeline of skilled STEM workers, scientists, and engineers to meet the nation’s growth ambitions. Looking ahead, we aim to expand this initiative across India to achieve greater impact and at the same time motivate children to pursue STEM education. Commenting on the announcement Hariharan Ganesan, Director, Partner Relations, Agastya International Foundation added, We at Agastya aim to create the next generation of tinkerers, innovators, and solution seekers through our hands-on, experiential learning programs, like the Lab-on-a-Bike.

The children we impact through this program will be inspired to pursue a career in STEM and grow up to be scientists and entrepreneurs. We are glad to have the support of SKF for this program, which will reach over 2000 children in one year. The Lab-on-a-Bike’ initiative works on the principles of ‘learning by discovery’, ‘learning through activity’ and ‘learning from the environment’ in contrast to textbook-based, ‘learning by rote’ methods. Through science-based activities and innovative teaching tools, the program aims to enhance the level of interest and participation of children towards STEM, inspiring them to consider a STEM-based career choice.
