The primary goal of UDAAN is to increase interest and excitement of high school girls in engineering fields. We believe we can really motivate and encourage them to elevate their inclination and aptitude towards science and engineering and inspire them to choose engineering as their career path. We strive to share out love for science and engineering with the community through UDAAN initiative by organising various career guidance lectures by inviting women engineers and women who run and manage industries. We also wish to conduct science hobby workshops, Industrial visits and do various activities to help them learn scientific and engineering concepts with fun.

10 September 2020 Visit to Community Science Centre (VACSC)

Arranged a visit of 50 girls studying in grades 9 and 10 to VASCSC. The visit was aimed to nurture and direct the girls towards scientific thinking with methods and techniques that make the process of learning an enjoyable and lasting experience.

10 September 2020 Quadrangle at VASCSC

The girls explored the world of Science by themselves through interactive exhibits, models, puzzles that were displayed in the quadrangle area of the centre.

Science & Mathematics Demonstrations

Through the above demonstrations girls got an opportunity to understand and internalise basic concepts of Science and Maths through experiential learning. Innovative, interactive and structured sessions were conducted to make concepts of mass, energy, simple machines, colour, etc. easily understandable.

Science Playground

Girls learnt science concepts while at play in the science playground.

5 August 2019 Industrial Visit

Planned and arranged for an Industrial visit at a plastic processing unit at Vatva, Ahmedabad. Conducted a tour of the shop floor where the girls got to see the Production, Assembly, Quality Assurance, Packing and Dispatch departments.
