Challenge

The schooling system in India has produced education apathy and high out-of-school rates. Infrastructure, teaching facilities, and the use of technology that fosters child participation in experiential learning are nonexistent. Consequently, there is a mismatch between academic and professional success. Agastya observed the need for an experiential, hands-on, and child-centric teaching methodology and chose to address this critical constraint.

Solution

Agastya's Campus Creativity Lab attracts 600+ children from surrounding government schools every day through various hands-on teaching labs, the Discovery Center, the center for creative teaching, the Eco-Lab and evening community visits, IT, a library and community reading center, and a teacher education centre. Agastya draws children into a world where learning is pure joy.

Long-Term Impact

Hands-on learning will increase retention, awaken innate creative, critical, and problem-solving skills and trigger the self-belief needed to propel an individual to rise and act responsibly. arming young people with curiosity and creative-thinking skills. bridging the growing socio-economic divide between urban and rural India.
