Pidilite, under the aegis of the Fevicreate programme, aims to reach 10,0000 students across 650 schools in 25 cities and provide them a platform to experience and learn about India’s Chandrayaan mission and space. Fevicreate as an initiative seeks to go beyond traditional teaching methods and instead adopt a ‘learning by doing’ approach, thereby incorporating creativity into the learning process.

All through the month of September, Fevicreate will encourage future scientists to try their hands at creating their own version of Chandrayaan using the specially designed Fevicreate Chandrayan 2 sheet (crafting sheet) provided by Pidilite and Fevicol A+. This sheet tells them all about the Lander and the Rover in Chandrayaan 2, and allows them to make a model of the same. The students will be assisted by teachers. The sheet comprises of instructions the kids can follow. The activity has also been captured in a video, which was launched on September 5.

Going a step forward, Fevicreate has also collaborated with Nehru Planetarium for an activity where kids created Chandrayaan replicas. Over 500 students participated, giving wings to their imagination.

Dr Arvind Paranjpye, Director, Nehru Planetarium, Mumbai, said, “Chandrayaan 2 is a historic mission and children should learn more about it. We believe Fevicreate’s ‘Make Your Own Chandrayaan 2’ initiative gives just the right platform for kids to explore and learn about space missions in creative and engaging manner.”

Shantanu Bhanja, CEO, Consumer Products, Pidilite Industries Ltd., said, “We believe in the power of art and craft to help children learn. In lots of research, it is proven that making things ‘projects’: beyond just seeing and hearing about them — deepen the learning process. The very acts of planning, cutting, pasting and painting for making art and craft projects are essential to the growth of fine skills development in children. Arts and crafts provide children the opportunity to fully explore their potential, build their self-confidence, and ensure their all-round development. As a part of the Fevicreate initiative, we endeavour to introduce new learning methods to the future scientists of India and offer them a platform to think out of the box and explore beyond textbooks.”
