A 2 day program for school students in a corporate!

Team Everest Supported Gamesa in conducting ‘Gamesa Academic Excellence Meet’ for 160 students from 6 schools. All students came to Gamesa office in Chennai to attend this program. It is a 2 day program where we conducted various activity based programs for school students.

The different programs includes Communication workshop, Public Speaking through Skit, Tangram, Presentation skills through poster making, Career Guidance program, Science is Fun, Power of Internet, Logical thinking workshops and a magic show. This is the first time all these children are visiting a corporate office. We got great feedback from all students for this event.

Below is the picture journey of this event:
