Curiosity Gym was set up in 2015 with an objective to:
- Transform the Outlook to learning
- Develop curiosity and engagement
- Catalyze creative confidence and innovation
- Be a leading provider of STEAM based learning
Why Curiosity Gym?
Experiential learning pushes for learner centred activities that create opportunities for deeper learning to empower learners with key skills to benefit themselves as well as communities. These interventions when coupled with technology, help catalyse millions of students around the world to be curious and innovative by simplifying concepts and surfacing the interdisciplinary nature of much in life. As experiential learning becomes an integral part of education, Curiosity Gym, is on a mission to integrate STEAM education as an approach that explores teaching and learning between/among any two or more of the STEAM subject areas, and between a STEAM subject and one or more other school subjects with a real world/simulated/applied context.
Curiosity Gym has gamified learning and pedagogy to help schools in imparting 21st century learning skills by fostering curiosity, creativity, and innovative spirit through readymade lesson plans. Design thinking and scientific temper are at the centre of sessions conducted by Curiosity Gym.
Our subject matter experts conduct live Online Courses in STEM, Coding, Artificial Intelligence, App Development, Robotics, 3D Printing and
Bioinformatics. These interactive sessions are delivered online and offline in a hybrid model , so students can be engaged in learning from the comfort of their homes. We also provide long-term individual Mentorships. Whether it is building projects for social/environmental impact, programming projects, and global competitions; our mentees and students stand a class apart in their applied learning skills and ability to imagine questions that would otherwise not be asked in a traditional curriculum.
