Udaan: Inspiring girl students and giving wings to their dreams
New Delhi, Oct 27: The low enrolment of girl students in schools and colleges is a reality in India, especially in the rural areas. Even if the girls attend schools, they drop out after elementary or middle school. To address this problem, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) under the guidance of Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has lauched a program called Udaan.
Udaan is a platform that empowers the girl students, facilitate their aspiration of joining the prestigious engineering institutions and take important role in development/ progress of the country in future. Under this program, students are provided free offline/online resources through virtual weekend contact classes and study material on pre-loaded tablet while studying in Class XI and Class XII for preparation of admission test to various premier engineering colleges in the country.
The main objective of the effort is to enrich the teaching and learning of Science and Mathematics at School level by addressing the three dimensions of education - curriculum design, transaction and assessments.
