You might agree that when we were students, the most exciting day of the week would be that one day when we could enter the science lab and witness magic all around us. Most of us have been fortunate enough to gain scientific exposure in this respect. However, thousands of students, even today, do not have adequate access to experimentation. The reason could range from lack of equipment to perform experiments or the non availability of a lab space at school.

Project CatAlyst is an initiative of two Fellows working with Teach for India, Hyderabad. Through this project, we aim at helping teachers and students in low income private and government schools drive experimentation by providing them with portable science kits that include equipment as prescribed by the higher secondary syllabus, at no cost.

Phase One of our project began in the month of August, which saw us providing kits to six 9th Grade classrooms across Hyderabad.
Phase Two has shown a growth in demand, and we aim to now provide CatAlyst kits to eighteen 8th and 9th Grade classrooms across 11 schools in Hyderabad.
