KVRSS Mobile Science Lab is an innovative initiative in the field of science for hands-on-activities of different models and equipment to facilitate easy learning of science concepts by school students. It has been fabricated on a Eicher bus chassis and is equipped with all necessary equipment and models for learning science hand on for classes 7 to 10.
The Bus is equipped with Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics models and demonstration kits, depicting various scientific concepts and equipment for various projects. The bus also has a built-in audio-visual facility.
The bus is planned to go around the schools and the adjoining areas and in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad and interact with students. Schools and students interested may through their school may approach to avail the facility
The need for a science laboratory for hands on learning with experiments and exploring the subject is felt across schools both private and government with lack of adequate lab facilities
The project was funded by Mrs Rani and Mr, Malli Varanasi through Lalitha Varanasi Fund of Orange County Community Foundation. Their representatives in Hyderabad, Mrs Leela Devi and Mrs. Rama Sastry Varanasi graced the occasion.
The Society, started in 2001 in Hyderabad has now its footprint across India and is highly regarded in the scientific community and students. During this journey the Society realized the need for mentoring students in order to enhance their knowledge and creativity and create interest in Science. To achieve this KVRSS has designed and has set-up a Science Innovation Centra at its office. To extend its reach to far flung schools and take science to their doorstep KVRSS has now developed a mobile science lab which will go around various government schools and schools in and around the twin cities which require lab facility support and facilitate hands-on and experiential learning to school students from classes 7 to 10. The bus is equipped with all the equipment for leaning science upto class 10 and also a number of models depicting various concepts in science.
