The academy can be incorporated in the schools from the current academic year itself.
This academy aims to improve conceptual understanding and develop scientific aptitude amongst students by providing hands-on learning experiment tools. The program is a 3 step systematic methodology of ‘OBSERVE, EXPLORE & REFLECT’ which would help a child nurture his/her scientific aptitude.
Mr. Tetsuya Onodera, Chairman, Gakken J Holdings said, “Zee Learn Gakken Science Academy has given us an opportunity to bring our expertise to the schools in India. We are thrilled to see the overwhelming response received from schools and students during demonstrations. I am confident that this program will definitely ensure a better conceptual understanding and help children develop an affinity towards the subject.”
This methodology enables students to design their own learning process. They lead the way by reflecting on their experiences which makes them the experts of their own learning process. When in classroom, the instructor helps create situations where the students feel safe questioning and reflecting on their learning
Besides building a scientific temper amongst students, Zee Learn Gakken Science Academy also aims to introduce and incorporate best practices in education. In order to execute the same, the science program would be conducted in the school premises by dedicated personnel trained by the company.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Sumeet Mehta, CEO, Zee Learn said, “We are extremely excited to bring in this innovative learning method to India in association with Gakken J Holdings. Our aim is to bring the best in class education standards across all schools / education institutions in India and help build superior quality of human capital for the future.

The Indian education system is transforming at a rapid pace. Children today have access to a wide world of knowledge and information through internet and broadcast. The model needs to be in line with the increasing aptitude of this set of next-gen students.
“Being in this sector for more than a decade, we felt the need to revolutionize the way our children were learning. In our search for the right partner who will help bring about this change we found Gakken to be an ideal match,” he added.
