Inquire Inspire Innovate
We believe that questions, queries, investigation, probe, examination, review, analysis, exploration and peer to peer debate generates true hunger and real love for learning. We encourage inquiry to an extent that children even identify problems around a specific concept and not only its solution. Effective enablers here include well crafted STEM modules that trigger a sense of discovery supplemented by hands-on practical toolkits.
We believe that practical challenge based education fueled by Inquiry instills inspiration to think out-of-the box. We motivate students to ponder on ‘Why’ rather than ‘Because’ and make them capable of finding answers. Such inspiration filled students do not subscribe to rote learning but adopt the unconventional path of seeking challenges and deriving fun solving real life problems.
We believe that the confidence obtained from being solution oriented paves the way for students to become increasingly creative and leads to innovation along untapped dimensions. Creating new frontiers and raising the bar, such inventions bring growth and prosperity to societies, nations and the world. Incredible is the power of our STEM based pedagogy which embodies prowess to transform ordinary knowledge seekers to perform extraordinary tasks and produce outstanding results.
Vision and Mission
To create a world where young people are encouraged to celebrate fun and excitement of science and technology, and inspire them to take science and technology based career paths to become tomorrow’s much needed technology leaders.
Encourage, develop and implement exciting, mentor based programs that inculcate interest towards science and technology in the minds of young people, inspiring them to meet the real challenges of the global, technology-driven society through innovation, collaboration, and creative problem solving.
Experiential learning refers to, “making meaning from direct experience”. Experiential learning plays a supporting role in experiential education which facilitates the process of knowledge creation, sense-making and knowledge transfer in teaching, training and development. It is a constructivist approach where students are engaged in meaningful personal inquiry and where collaboration and personalized learning are emphasized.
Teaching Methods for your Children
1. READ ALOUD TO YOUR CHILD:
Start teaching your child from infancy. When you read in front of your child it instills in her a love for books. Enjoyment while reading is one of the single greatest predictors of reading success in school-age children. If children don’t learn from an early age to enjoy reading, it will most likely hinder their ability sometime down the road.
Birth-1 Year: Lullabies, Board Books (with real pictures), Cloth Books (with various textures), Song Books
1 Year-3 Years: Rhyming Books, Song Books, Short-Story Board Books
3 Years-5 Years: Alphabet Books, Song Books, Picture Books, Rhyming Books
2. ASK QUESTIONS:
Asking questions while reading to your child is not only great for encouraging your child to interact with the book, but it is also extremely effective in developing his ability to comprehend what he is reading.
3. IDENTIFY LETTERS IN NATURAL SETTINGS:
Allow your child to be a kid and take advantage of the “teachable moments” as they come along. Children’s minds are like sponges and are certainly capable of memorizing the alphabet from drilling, but that’s not the most effective method that will produce the best long-term results. Your child will be curious about the print he sees around him and will ask questions. That’s your chance to jump in with a practical application that actually has real meaning and significance to your child.
4. CLASSIFY THE GENRE
Once your child is around 5 and can recognize the difference between real and make-believe, I would suggest starting to help your child understand various genres of books during your reading time together. This might seem complicated, but it’s really not. There are around 5 different genres of children’s books that I would encourage you to point out to your little one. Of course, you can use the term “type” rather than “genre” if that is easier to remember.
1. Nonfiction (real stories or facts about animals, places, people, etc),
2. Fantasy (make-believe, can’t happen in real life because of magic, talking animals, etc),
3. Realistic Fiction (a made-up story, but it could technically happen in real life because of the characters and situations are believable),
4. Alphabet Books,
5. Song Books.
Inn STEM LAB introduces middle and secondary school students (grades 1-10) to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by immersing them in integrated, inter-disciplinary, hands-on projects that are based on problems of our present and future life.
STEM courses encourage students to invent and be inspired. STEM courses are designed to have students solve real-world problems while being aligned to CBSE/ICSE/IB syllabus. STEM courses are knit as part of year long school curriculum so as not to put extra burden on teachers vested with completing prescribed syllabus. They, in fact, help students to way better understand the concepts of Math and Science thus assisting teachers to reach their goals and preparing students to become problem solvers and creative out-of-the-box thinkers to boldly and successfully face and resolve constantly emerging global challenges. The class size is split into comfortable group sizes and adequate number of modules are pre-loaded onto carts for each Class to come to STEM lab and do the learning. The content is constantly updated and maintenance rendered.
