Seagate Technology, a world leader in storage solutions, will be supporting the Mission Education program of a well known NGO Smile Foundation. Through this association, hundreds of underprivileged children from urban slums and remote rural villages will receive quality education.
Seagate will partner with Smile Foundation to organize a program called “Day of Giving: Bringing Smiles through Math & Science”. The objective of the event is to encourage the children at SMILE to take a keen interest in math and science, and to learn the concepts in a fun and creative way with Seagate employees.
“This visit really gives our Seagate volunteers the opportunity to mentor and spend a meaningful afternoon with the students from Smile Foundation. Through the math and science activities, we hope that the students will develop a sustained interest in math and science.” said Milan Mulye, Engineering Director, Electronics Solutions.
In addition to solving Math and Science puzzles, the children will also try their hand at mural painting using math and science symbols and images. The event will end off with a musical performance by the children of Smile Foundation.
Under its Capacity to Care program, Seagate’s primary focus is on education and learning, reaching out to children, and creating awareness in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.
“We are extremely happy to partner with Seagate. Their support will undoubtedly help us take the Mission Education program to the next level. . We appreciate Seagate for all the support which has been extended towards the program.” said Vikram Singh Verma, COO, Smile Foundation.
