THANE: Here is good news for mu­nic­i­pal school­child­ren in Thane.

They can now study any­where af­ter their classes and their school bag will be lighter and they needn’t carry text books.

They can get their syl­labus and text book in their tab or smart phone.

On Wed­nes­day, the Thane Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion launched a mo­bile app ‘ robo­mate’ at its head­quar­ters in the pres­ence of civic com­mis­sioner San­jeev Jaiswal.

The app is avail­able on play store and one can down­load it free of cost.

The app con­tains syl­labus for IIT, JEE and CBSE.

TMC stu­dents of Classes 5 to 7 can get their syl­labus on the app.

“TMC school­child­ren can avail the fa­cil­ity free of cost. But, they need In­ter­net con- nec­tion. Af­ter down­load­ing the syl­labus, they can learn through the var­i­ous au­dio­vi­sual lessons.

This is use­ful to un­der­stand lessons eas­ily,” said San­deep Malwi, pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer of TMC.

“MT Education Trust has pre­pared t his app f or ed­u­ca­tional pur­pose,” said an of­fi­cer from MT Education Trust.

“This is easy to down­load. We can teach stu­dents with help of the app. Stu­dents find this in­ter­est­ing and use­ful,” said a teacher, who teaches Classes 6 and 7 stu­dents.

“The TMC has given us the tab. I have browsed through the text­books on the tab. It is a good way of learn­ing,” said San­jyot Khade, a Class 7 stu­dent from a TMC school.
