0 Comment(s) Posted

1. The Government of Karnataka has decided to expand Agastya's proven model in 9 districts to the remaining 20 districts, a decision whose benefits will reach an additional 3 million children. Several organisations have come forward to participate in the expansion (see attached article in The Hindu).

2. The Tamil Nadu Government has launched 17 mobile science labs, the benefits of which should reach several million children in Tamil Nadu.

To meet different needs, Agastya is enhancing its mobile science concept: a) Under a Karnataka Science and Technology Academy-sponsored program Agastya will be providing its 'Lab-in-a-Box' to schools that have been visited by the Agastya Mobile Lab and b) Agastya has launched an 'Autorickshaw Mobile Lab'.
