Hans and his hands-on science teacher training

This evening it was nice to see an interesting email from my friend Hans (about whom I mentioned in my previous post). He still travels to Cambodia from his native Netherlands frequently on work. Recently he conducted a 6 months' training programme for science teachers in Cambodia.

It is amazing that teachers from 112 schools participated in the programme.

By the way, today is celebrated as New Year's day in Tamilnadu, and in countries such as Cambodia.
