ThinkerPlace, an Ed-Tech company that provides end-to-end learning solutions for children across the country through the introduction of S.T.E.M [Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics] based education has tied up with The Lexicon Schools Pune, Achievers Active High School, and Modern School Delhi to set up S.T.E.M labs for children to encourage S.T.E.M-based learning.
ThinkerPlace has been a pioneer in changing the traditional system of education through the introduction of STEM-based learning. Through the setting up of these labs they are also expanding the Government’s mandate in the field of education through the National Education Policy of 2020.
In today’s day and age where traditional educational practices are becoming increasingly obsolete as children are adapting to a more creative, innovative, interactive, and adaptive learning; ThinkerPlace has played a huge role in executing and providing just what children need for learning and growing their knowledge. The Government’s mandate of NEP 2020 is to build the foundations of a new India that is a knowledge-driven society. Keeping this very thought in mind, ThinkerPlace is ready to go the extra mile by setting up S.T.E.M labs across the country by tying up with various learning institutions.
The Government also encourages the setting up of ATAL tinkering labs which foster creative, innovative, and imaginative thinking in young minds. These labs also inculcate skills such as design mindset, computational thinking, adaptive learning, and physical computing. The Government’s ATAL Tinkering labs and ThinkerPlace’s S.T.E.M based learning have a similar objective – to assist students to develop an array of future based skills with its primary focus on innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship.
“ThinkerPlace is zealous about inspiring every child out there to learn in a more creative, and innovative manner. It is about time the traditional learning practices are put away and an approach of ‘learning beyond books’ is adapted. We are all aware of how much information a child’s mind can grasp and process, then why should we limit them to just theoretical learning when there is so much more, they can learn at such a tender age. We are absolutely thrilled that by tying up with various schools to set up the S.T.E.M labs we can not only accomplish our vision but also the Government’s mandate of NEP of 2020” says Mrs. Deepti Sharma, Director, ThinkerPlace.
The setting up of complete S.T.E.M lab for the schools include 3D printing, robotics lab setup, automation lab setup, drone lab, basic lab, and much more. Students are provided with specially integrated S.T.E.M-based curriculum according to their age group and are also provided with ThinkerPlace’s S.T.E.M kits. Additionally, they are given access to an online Learning Management System (LMS) so that they can get access to learning material and track the progress. Teachers are trained on the functionality of the S.T.E.M labs and there is also a feature of one-on-one guidance for young innovators.
Through the setting up of the S.T.E.M labs at several schools across the country, Thinkerplace is sure to be a game-changer in the field of education.
