Mangaluru, Sep 11: In continuation of its 10th year celebration, a very unique workshop was conducted on September 9 to motivate the youth to study better and take up the STEM subjects in new light for better career prospects and increase awareness of the proposed Tinkering Lab.
Neville Rodrigues, a personality development mentor and aviation exponent used paper planes and his personal aviation experiences to motivate, inspire and encourage the class IX students to improve their desire to study, be self-motivated (intrinsic motivation) and showed them a way on how to achieve their life goals.
He explained about the opportunities in modern world and the importance of setting a strong foundation from early years to achieve the goal.
The workshop showed how mundane items can be used to create incredible objects when we outgrow in our creativity, communication and confidence.
The students were amazed by the complex planes made from something as common as paper and expressed that their resolve was strengthened even more. They realised that it is not money alone that really makes things happen. First comes resolve, self-belief and internal goodness (character) that makes things happen. Financial success is sure to follow.
The school looks forward to conduct such programs and wishes Neville success in his crusade to change the way the youths think about life in general.
