June 09, 2017

Former US Ambassador Theodore Kronmiller and his son Michael Kronmiller together inaugurated Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics laboratory in Kanjirowa National Secondary School at Koteshwor. At the inauguration, Kronmiller praised the efforts of Kanjirowa in setting up the STEM lab to support students.

Kronmiller said collaboration with Kanjirowa on ‘project drone’ could be improved in the coming days and strengthen STEM lab. Earlier on June 5, Kronmiller and Krishpin Chaulagain, a student of Kanjirowa, conducted a successful drone flight test at Kala Patthar.

This drone project emphasizes on providing support in extreme environmental or man-made conditions. The drones help in locating victims, reducing human casualties, surveying areas vulnerable to disasters and help in disaster readiness. The executive director of the school, Mahendra Khanal appreciated Kronmiller family for supporting the school since last four years.

STEM lab is a joint venture of Kanjirowa School and Robotics Association of Nepal. Kronmiller and his project advisers have been working with Kanjirowa School on the challenging drone STEM project since 2014.
