Q. How will teachers learn to operate the models?

A. We offer training and support to teachers after the installation is complete where teachers learn to operate the models as intended. We also provide training videos to teachers on different models for their ready reference.

Q. What activities are included in the teacher training programme?

A. Apart from training the teachers on different models, we teach them to prepare consumption reports where they learn to record the frequency of use of the models in a log register. We also teach them to use reading material and test the students using a questionnaire.

Q. How should teachers proceed if they forget the concepts about the models?

A. Easy-to-understand videos explaining different models are given to teachers which they can refer to any time they want to brush up on their concepts. Charts provided with the models also explain the concepts clearly so that teachers do not face any difficulty in relearning the concepts.

Q. Can we use the models during classroom teaching?

A. Of course, you can. The whole purpose of having science models is to help children learn faster and better. You can easily carry the models from science centre to the classroom and demonstrate its working to children while teaching.

Q. How many models are included in the science centre?

A. A total of 80 models are included in the science centre project which also includes charts that illustrate the functioning of each model.

Q. Are the models difficult for students to understand?

A. Absolutely not. The models are designed with the primary goal of simplifying the learning experience of students. All models are student- friendly allowing students to easily hold and operate the models to understand the concepts. Teacher supervision ensures that students use

the models correctly.

Q. Models are for 5th to 10th standard. How do we differentiate and recommend age-appropriate models to students?

A. Here, the teacher has to ensure that students engage with suitable models aligned with their school syllabus before they move on to operate models beyond the scope of their syllabus. Teachers are trained well to differentiate one model from another based on the curriculum.

Q. Models could get lost, break or deform. What do we do in that scenario?

A. School administration and teachers have to ensure the safekeeping of the models as they are the property of the school after the installation. Models are made of high-quality material which does not break or deform unless mishandled. However, in the event, where damage to the models does happen, schools can reach out to our programme coordinator who will guide you through the repair and replacement procedure of the specific model.

Q. How do we know if the science centre is beneficial for our students?

A. We have a regular tracking and monitoring system which helps us gauge the effectiveness of the project. The log register provided by us records every time the models are used. During teacher training programmes, we randomly test teachers and students to assess their knowledge and get their feedback on how the science centre is improving their learning experience.
