Honeywell India Technology Centre helps Haryana School with Science education
Honeywell (NYSE:HON) last month announced its Honeywell India Technology Center (HITC) is helping more than 600 local students learn about science and technology though a partnership with a local school.
10 volunteers from the center, backed by a $10,000 (INR 620,825) contribution from Honeywell, are participating in a program to provide experiential learning opportunities through interaction with technologists and engineers. The program is part of Honeywell Hometown Solutions, the company’s corporate citizenship initiative, which seeks to address certain needs in the communities it serves.
“Honeywell is committed to promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education worldwide through a series of unique programs designed to inspire the next generation of innovators ,” said Simon Hobbs, senior director for HITC. “This program affords students an opportunity to work with some of Honeywell’s top technologists and engineers to learn more about potential careers.”
The program is being run in partnership with Sanskriti School, a Haryana government funded school in Gurgaon, to impact class IX students before they choose their subject streams. Students participate in workshops and exhibitions and use science lab kits specifically designed to suit the school’s academic curriculum.
“At Sanskriti, we aim to provide the best education to our students with experiential trainings and hands-on workshops. We welcome such initiatives and are delighted to have Honeywell employees volunteering to enhance the STEM program,” said Surender Mehndiratta, principal of Sanskriti School, Gurgaon. “Their hard work and dedication to the project is visible and I am sure that the batch will benefit from these workshops and contributions.”
