The Quest Explore Discover (QED), the first zonal science centre was inaugurated in collaboration with the Corporation of Chennai at the Chennai Middle School in Triplicane.

The Science Centre, the brainchild of Everest Edusys and Solutions Pvt Limited, was inaugurated by Mayor Saidai Duraisamy.

The QED Center focuses on teaching students to think critically using empirical techniques and experimental learning. “Based on the concepts being taught by all boards for classes 6, 7 and 8 (middle school), more than 100 working models (QED Aids) have been designed to global standards and mapped to local curriculum and syllabus,” said a release.

Speaking at the inauguration, Krishna Srinivasan, Founder and Chairman, Everest Edusys and Solutions, Pvt Ltd, said, “We believe in the right to quality in education for every Indian child, and QED is a small step in this direction. It is our dream to provide a global science experience in our schools by creating science spaces and taking mobile science aid to where the child is. Out of this dream was born Everest Edusys and Solutions Pvt Ltd, and its flagship product “QED” - QUEST. EXPLORE. DISCOVER”.

The centre is set to be the first of several centres which are currently in the pipeline. The QED centre will house more than 40 exhibits, which will be changed every term based on the syllabus. The centre will also have a resource person to maintain and run the centre.
