STE(A)M based program to get your hands dirty and make your ideas happen! (13+)
Innovation School is a STE(A)M program designed to drive hands-on, collaborative learning where projects focus on solving real world problems. Aligned with the maker philosophy of “Learning by doing” the program has been developed to help students and even those continuing education to build a maker mindset.
This part of the program is essentially focussed on developing fundamental technology skills at the intersection of hardware, design and programming. These comprise of 6 mandatory skills.
Outcome : 6 facilitated hands on projects that help you gain deep dive into multiple technologies
As part of the virtual skill building experience, Innovation School Kits are sent home to each talent. They contain exciting hardware that lets the talents create a makerspace at their desk.
Talents spend a week at our makerspace in Goa on an experiential learning journey – from identifying and defining a problem to finally creating a tangible solution. This involves the process of design thinking, frugal innovation and rapid prototyping. Each talent works with select mentors and is supervised by the Maker’s Asylum Team.
Outcome : Functional Prototype of a solution
The designing of a solution is just the beginining. Each maker project needs multiple iterations and inputs before the solution becomes physically viable. That’s where mentor come in. Post residency each talent will have access to a mentor and the team at Maker’s Asylum to help iterate, document and test solutions in the real world. We also help you document this journey so it becomes your personal story.
Format : Online
Meet inspiring individuals from across the globe who will share what’s happening in the world of Innovation with you! Leaders and experts from diversified backgrounds become part of your personal network as you navigate your ideas and solutions!
Every second Saturday
