Pune, 11 September, 2016: KPIT Technologies (BSE: 532400; NSE: KPIT), a global technology company specializing in IT consulting and product engineering, and Jnana Prabodhini, announced the launch of the Chhote Scientists mobile app at the inaugural event of Jnana Prabodhini’s Science Exhibition on Sunday, 11th September. The app will help in widening the reach of the social initiative, Chhote Scientists, which is aimed at cultivating interest in science amongst children and encouraging them to solve real-world problems using practical applications and experiments.
The Chhote Scientists program has benefited over 10,000 government school children in rural Pune, Mumbai, Jalna and Bangalore through experiment-led sessions by KPIT employee volunteers and Jnana Prabodhini volunteers who teach basic concepts of science using easily available material. The mobile app will enable people - looking to volunteer for such teaching programs - to collaborate with KPIT and receive mentoring to conduct classes at the beneficiary schools.
