Investing in our Children's Future

KSS participates in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Science Popularization
Sponsors & Collaborators: 

Elementary and Secondary Education Department (E&SE) of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government has planned to organize a week long summer camp across all 25 districts of the province. Along with training around 83,000 primary school teachers, the department has embarked upon providing a fun yet informative environment to the students for a week.

 

We are pleased to inform our Khwarizmi family that we, along with more than 10 other organizations, will be a part of this summer camp. This will be our contribution in this collective effort to provide better school environment, especially to learn science and maths. The government and non-government agencies will work in synergy so that every child across the province gets the opportunity to learn something out of his/her textbook, to learn something by experimentation.

 

The summer camp will be held simultaneously in 60 government schools across the province from 7th August, 2017 to 14th August 2017. Khwarizmi Science Society plans to visit five schools from 7th August to 10th August, 2017. Our team will be covering Peshawar and Kohat during the four-day long trip.
