Moving away from rote learning, Hyderabad schools are providing experiential learning options in the classroom
The present scenario of our education system focuses more on rote-based learning, rather than concentrating on providing real time knowledge. School students do not have learning platforms to develop their creative thinking abilities or encouraged to explore science concepts.
In an attempt to bridge this gap, through an innovative, exploratory and scalable manner, Experifun, India’s first Science gadget company, has launched many gadgets that bring interaction of science concepts with real objects around to demystify science and make learning effective for teachers and students alike in classrooms.
Rakesh Kumar, Co-founder, Experifun said, “In our classrooms, science is taught like history – students are ‘told’ about the concepts but don’t get to explore, experience or challenge! Our labs encourage children to find and verify what is written in the book rather than explore and challenge concepts. With Experifun, we have set out to create learning platforms to bring exploration capabilities to teachers and students in addition to ensuring affordability and suitability like cost, quality and reach-ability to rural schools in India.”
