As you are aware, the Ruchika Social Service Organisation has been working with street, slum and railway children since 1985. It reaches out to over 5000 children with multifarious programs e.g. schooling on the platform, remedial coaching, vocational training, shelter services, emergency assistances, nutrition and medical care etc.
The aforesaid marginalized children have also potentiality in the field of Science and this will blossom if opportunities are given to them. To augment their scientific outlook and to enhance creativity in the field of Science and Math, we have planned to organize a Science Exhibition viz. “Little Scientists” on 24th November 2012 at 3731-A, Sriram Nagar, Old Town, Bhubaneswar. The slum and street kids from different slums and railway stations will bring science project models made by themselves. In addition, the children will organize different Science and Mathematical activities and quizzes during the day.
Ms. Usha Padhi, IAS, Commissioner Cum Secretary, Deptt. Of School and Mass Education, Govt. of India has kindly agreed to inaugurate the exhibition. Sri Bhabani Charan Pattanaik, Ex. MP and Freedom Fighter, Sri Sivanand Ray, President, Bhubaneswar Auto Mahasangha, Dr. Bhagyadhar Bhoi, Sr. Principal Scientist, Regional Research Laboratory, Bhubaneswar, Dr. Chitta Ranjan Mishra, Distinguished Scientist of Odisha are expected to grace the occasion as Guests of Honour.
