Honeywell ties up with Haryana govt school to promote science education

| Updated on: Mar 06, 2014

To promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education in India, Honeywell India has partnered with a Haryana Government school, Sanskriti School.

Volunteers from Honeywell India Technology Centre (HITC) are participating in a programme to provide experiential learning opportunities to students through interactions with technologists and engineers.

Simon H Hobbs, Senior Director, HITC said, “We are taking the science laboratory to the kids. Our scientists have put together a series of experiments that can be done safely in a school environment. Currently, we are targeting about 600 students in Class 9. The intent is to expand it to more schools.”

On future plans, he said, “We are also planning a science quiz and plan to engage more schools and invite the winner/s to come spend a day at the facility in Gurgaon.”

The Gurgaon facility has about 100 scientists and engineers. “I am expecting that in five years from now, we will be about 200,” Hobbs said.

The programme is part of Honeywell Hometown Solutions, the company’s corporate citizenship initiative.
