These models and projects are created by the students of Don Bosco High School (Matunga) as a part of school curriculum. In a sense this is a “student helping a student” activity. On one hand it promotes curiosity, creativity, problem solving, team work, etc in students on the other hand it helps in better understanding of scientific and natural phenomena, aids teachers is communication, explanation and evaluation.
Fr Rolvin D’Mello (Executive Director – DBDS) said, “We are extremely grateful to the students of Don Bosco Matunga; if not of their efforts, the underprivileged kids from the slums would never have access to such good project models for their learning.” So far DBDS has donated these models to Sion Municipal school, Korabaaa Mithagar BMC school at Wadala, and MHADA BMC school at Antophill.
The recipient school’s principals and teachers have appreciated this initiative of DBDS and are using them in their classes. They also have expressed their sentiments of gratefulness to the staff and students to Don Bosco High School, Matunga.
