High emphasis on "marks" and rote learning, rigid curriculum with little connect to "daily life" demotivates children and teachers. Hence, students lack critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills which are essential for social, cultural and economic development.
Eikas Foundation firmly believes that children inherently carry nascent seeds of inquiry and discovery which can be tapped for self-driven learning and holistic development. Our STEM Gym programs for children in schools, as well as at our learning centre in Anna Nagar, Chennai, are designed based on the above principle. We also do one-on-one mentoring for children with high motivation to pursue careers in science and engineering.
Our STEM programs are based on the following core structure and incorporate key features described below.
