MASHA INNOVATION CENTER

        Masha Innovation Center  started for the purpose of  inculcating   the sprit of creativity and  inventiveness   among school students. It was inaugurated by the Dist. Collector Shiri. Nagarajan IAS on 01-02-2014. This innovation center is housed in 1500 sft area and  situated at  Peruvilai, just 500 meter back of  Parvathipurm Bus Stand, Nagercoil, Kanyakumari Dist. This center consists of a class room, workshop, and a laboratory. School students are  being imparted with practical training in creative science  during week ends at free of cost. This training includes learning by doing concepts, think science presentations, hands on projects, science fair projects etc.  Every year a science expo is being conducted giving chance to students to display their models to  dignitaries. Two  of such expos  were  conducted so far  which was visited by the District Collector, SP and the Municipal Chairman.

The idea behind starting of Innovation Center.  "After gaining 2 successive Ignite National awards,  I have received several enquiries from school students all over  the state to guide  them in doing science  projects.  So I have opened a website specially for this purpose and started  helping  school students in India and  guided them to win national awards. During 2013 two school students  who were guided by me won IGNITE National awards.  I shared this  happy news with our then District Collector of Kanyakumari Shri. Nagarajan.IAS  During  further  discussions   I  expressed to him  my concern   over  the challenges  faced by the Indian student community  in proving their talents beyond curriculum.  Actually the   School kids in India lack proper guidance and support for their interest in science models. Due to the academic syllabus pressure the teachers are also unable to support them fully. Parental support for such activities is very rare. Even science teachers fail to inform or motivate the students on science fairs which are the best opportunities to display one’s talent. There is still a vacuum in this field. After a patient hearing the Collector asked  me "why not  we   attempt  to fill this vacuum  right from our Dist- Kanyakumari- the southern most tip of India?"  He encouraged me to open a centre for this purpose. Few private organizations supported me financially to startup the center. This was how the idea of starting  my centre- Masha Innovation Centre developed."

     "I have stated this center with a  fund  of 1 lakh given by my Grandma. The Indian Over Seas Bank and the Chairman of Excel School has given Rs.25,000/- each.  Padmasree. Dr. Azad Moopen Chairman of DM health care, UAE, and Padmasree. B.R. Shetty, Chairman of UAE Exchange also major donors  for   this noble cause   who have  donated Rs. I lakh each."
