Science initiative aims to tackle the lack of resources available in government schools for well-equipped science laboratories.

Three Schools in Sindhupalchok district have been supported in setting up fully equipped science laboratories- all essential materials listed by the Department of Education Curriculum have been provided to the schools. This aims to support children in understanding and gaining practical experiences in science education.

This has been followed by a science fair where students, teachers, community members, parents, other government and non- government organisations participated from three VDCs of Thangpaldhap, Thangpalkot and Banskharka. The fair provided the children a chance to demonstrate their learning and everyone to understand how scientific concepts can be linked to our everyday concepts.
