About the campaign

How many times have the molecules and the complex chemical formulas terrorized us? How many times have we just mugged up just a formula to prayed our hearts out to keep it in our memory during exams? The story is the same or much worse for over 350 million children in India. Sheer lack of experimental learning not only impedes fundamental understanding of a subject, but also cripples the thought process of many as they become bricks in the wall of an age old education system. Application of skills and adapting to real-life situations no doubt remain a far cry in this toxic rote learning environment. Time has come to change it all. At life labs, we believe SCIENCE IS AN ATTITUDE - an attitude to observe, analyse, and solve problems, an attitude that shapes how an individual looks unto common social and economic problems. Science education is essential to fundamental understanding of logic in a young mind. We are working with schools to change the way students learn science through well researched innovative & interactive demonstration models. Our activity kits using low cost materials & grade specific Activity Booklets mapped to curriculum, make science learning engaging; inquisitive & fun. Above all, those take the terror out of equations, and sparks the imagination of young minds. A message from Lewitt Somarajan, Founder LifeLabs: "We envisage establish nation-wide cultural movement of hands-on learning pedagogy in schools. Student led real-time projects to identify & solve problems of neighborhood communities. We need your help to support our Life Facilitators who plan to reach out to over 7000 children this year - a little step towards the dream we have for children across the country".
