The Science Nurture Program is a unique program initiated by Disha to popularize Science among kids who have not exposed to Science like we have. As a basic science research institute, it is an ethical responsibility to give back to the society and communicate what we learn from Science.
The aim of the program is not to introduce concepts and equations and calculations to the children, but to introduce them to the beauty of science, to show how science can give us a predictive power like nothing else, and how science is not only a subject but a way of thinking.
About forty students come from two to three schools in Pune to attend this session every Sunday afternoon. The volunteers learn with the students and often have fun designing the activities for the sessions. In the past year, we have also taken the students to a visit to the Science Park in Pimpri-Chinchwad to accelerate their interest in Science.
