Forty one science laboratories equipped with advanced infrastructure and resources at 21 schools were inaugurated by V K Saxena, Delhi's Lieutenant Governor.
"It is an era of science. Without science and scientific temper, no step forward for socio-economic and human advancement could be envisaged," he said. The NDMC statement said the LG hoped these labs will become "crucibles of experimentation and innovation" and evolve as milestones in the field of education not only in the NDMC area but throughout Delhi. Reiterating Prime Minister Narendra Modi's emphasis on educating a girl child, the LG said education of a girl child leads to educating the whole family and in turn educating the entire society.
Mr Saxena also stressed the importance of extracurricular activities for the overall development of every student. Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar, NDMC Chairman Bhupinder Singh Bhalla, Vice Chairman Satish Upadhyay, Member of Council Kuljeet Singh Chahal and other senior officers were present on the occasion. On the occasion, Chief Secretary Kumar suggested steps to further improve the quality of education in NDMC schools. He called for the distribution of tablets to every student to make them digitally empowered.
