Taare Zameen Par Trust, in collaboration with Synopsis India, has triggered interest among students in Astronomy, Mathematics, Science and Technology as well as Space Science.

Dinesh Bhadagandi has undertaken this project in as many as 15 schools in the Gadag district and has left an indelible impression on young minds.

Disclosing the information about the concept, Dinesh Bhadagandi said in all till now 23 lakh students have benefited by watching mobile Planetarium in the state.

“Our objective is to create a scientific temperament and trigger a keen interest among the students in Science and related subjects. We have gone beyond our expectations. We have actually transformed the students thinking. The response from the students is phenomenal,” Dinesh Bhadagandi explained.

According to Dinesh, this concept has not only generated interest among the students but has also enhanced the interest to learn. This has, infact, qualitatively transformed the educational atmosphere in the 15 schools of Gadag district. “In the last three years, about 10 000 students have been benefitted from this programme in North Karnataka region,” he added.

In his speech, Abhijit Chaudhary of Taare Zameen Par Trust, said “the spark of curiosity programme has not only made students to develop interest in science but has also become a source of inspiration. Interaction with scientists, seminars, science fair and kaun banega sou pati intellectual quiz competition have been a totally different experience for the students.

“Every student is given a science kit. This will enable the students to learn science beyond the school hours,” Chaudhary added

B. U. Chandrashekar of Synopsis India, in his speech said, “this concept has enabled the students to choose their career and opt for the subjects of their liking. We are happy and satisfied to see students learning science and Technology with great enthusiasm. This programme will enable the students to choose their career instead of succumbing to parental pressure.”

Former Chairman of ISRO Kiran Kumar has been a great visionary and a noble guide to our activities. After our success in Gadag, we intend to extend this programme to all districts, said Dinesh Bhadagandi.

He further said that this best award will further act as a fillip and has inspired us to take up more such projects in a much bigger way.

“If we get CSR help like we are getting from Synopsis, we can extend the project to many districts of North Karnataka region,” Dinesh added.
