Engaging College Students for E-Paath Enhancement Project 
OLE Nepal’s pursuit of digitizing educational material up to grade 10 recently reached a major milestone as we completed the development of content for grade-8. Although this is quite the achievement, computer technology is such an ever evolving field that the content developed for grade 2 to grade 6 -using flash- have become technologically outdated. Consequently OLE Nepal in our endeavor of improving education through computer science decided to make our code base for grade 7 8, developed using HTML5, JS and CSS, open source and involve the students, in various fields of computer science, into our project to re-develop the content for grade 2-6.

Fundraising Campaign

Grade 8 content is now available on E-Paath Online! 
SCIENCE: In this lesson, students are able to explore the 'Human Circulatory System'. Multiple graphics and animations are used to explain all the components in this important system of the human anatomy. 
MATH: 'Bearing and Scale Drawing' is an interesting chapter in math, however, some students struggle to understand the basic concept. We have used simple yet interesting animations to explain the concept of bearing and scale drawing in real life.
ENGLISH: This chapter is called 'Our Grandparents'. Illustrations and audio has been used to deliver a grammar lesson on reflexive pronouns. Characters from diverse cultural backgrounds speak about their grandparents.
