APM Terminals Pipavav has started a mobile science and maths laboratory at Rampara Primary School in Rajula in Amreli, Gujarat for the benefit of local students, an initiative that will benefit around 10,000 students and 200 teachers.

According to the company, the local students did not have access to advanced technology and were dependent on bookish knowledge. However with this facility, the students will be able to get practical understanding on various subjects making “I do I learn” possible.

The “lab on wheels”, which was inaugurated on January 5, will help village students to perform science and maths experiments to gain practical insights and hone scientific skills, it said in a statement.
