Mrs. Kanchan’s Science Class 


I am looking forward to a great year of learning with lot of challenging activities for the kids that relate to the real world.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Kanchan Bhandare and I will be the science teacher for 6th and 7th grade for 2016 – 2017 school year. I am really excited to teach such a wonderful group of kids. I have really enjoyed teaching at Merryhill School these past years.

I have been teaching at Merryhill School for the past 16 years. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and a Master’s degree in Analytical Chemistry. After I completed my graduate degree I worked as a research assistant in a medical college doing AIDS research. I am a mother of two girls, who have both studied at Merryhill.

We will be working on a lot of interesting projects together to make learning science exciting and easy to understand. I want to educate the kids and motivate them to be independent thinkers and think out-of-the-box. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with your child.

Here are some of my accomplishments in the last few years:

  • Recognized by the City of Milpitas for introducing the Earth Hour in 2010Earth Hour is held in Mar of every year, requesting households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and appliances for 1-hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. The 5th Graders worked on the conservation project in 2009-2010 and were honored by the City of Milpitas.
  • Recognized by the City of Milpitas for introducing World Water Day in 2011World Water Day is celebrated annually to focus attention on the importance of fresh water. The 5th Graders worked on a lot of small projects in class and at home to learn more about saving water and were honored by the City of Milpitas in 2011.
  • Runner-Up for the Disney Environmentality Challenge in 2010 for “Conservation of Electricity” Project

I look forward to helping kids blend fundamental science with 21st Century requirements of Technology.
