Publish Date : 28/09/2021

Roing, Sept 26: As a part of the ‘Read to Learn’ Campaign launched by the Lohit Youth Library Network, Dibang Youth Library, Roing has launched a series of “Maths is Fun” workshops for Govt school students of classes VII to XII, to help them recover from the stagnation in studies due to the long corona crisis.

The first of these workshops for class VII students was conducted successfully on 25th September 2021. 15 students from Cheta Govt Middle School and Roing Sec School attended the same, fully following Corona SOP.

The workshop was conducted by Malothro Mena, a student of IIT Kharagpur and a library volunteer. A range of activities highlighting interesting aspects of numbers, maths puzzles and guessing games and paper folding geometry made the session highly interactive and enjoyable to the participants. They could also go through interesting books on mathematics and eminent mathematicians. Giving their feedback they expressed a keen desire to attend more such workshops.

Santosh Chetry, Mentor, Dibang Youth Library thanked the Govt school Head masters of Cheta and Roing town for their active participation.

The remaining workshops will be held in the coming weeks, targetting only 20 students per batch.
