Congratulations to Mr. Ganpat for being one of the 50 winners of the TCS Empowering Teachers - Inspiring Students contest. Representatives from TCS New York City Marathon surprised Mr. Ganpat during a morning muster assembly to present him his racing bib and training shirt. The event, along with Mr. Ganpat's surprised reaction, was captured on video below.
In honor of our 50th Anniversary, TCS created the "Empowering Teachers, Inspiring Students" contest. Through this program we are offering 50 deserving teachers free entry into the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon! Watch Davin Ganpat, a history teacher from East-West School of International Studies in Flushing, NY, find out he's in the race!
As part of the prize package, Mr. Ganpat (and other teachers at East-West) will have access to STEM education resources. Tata Consultancy Services is a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization. They believe strongly in giving back to the communities where they work and live. Their largest CSR efforts in North America are around health and fitness and STEM education. For more information on STEM education, check out the first-of-its-kind, multi-million initiative, Ignite My Future in School (IMFIS), which TCS launched last fall. This initiative leverages computational thinking and teaching resources as a catalyst to transform the way K-12 students learn across America. We are really proud of this program and hope it will be a tremendous resource to teachers of all levels.
On Sunday, November 4, 2018, let's cheer on Mr. Ganpat as he crosses the finish line at Central Park.
