Objective

Experience concepts by reinventing them, rather than just learning them. Experience the same joy the scientist got by inventing them. Go through his exciting journey through thriller stories, animations and games. Immerse yourself in a world-class interface and educational social network designed by professional designers and brilliant geeks of an international team. Use reinvention-based educational tools, which includes drawing on screen with a wave of your hand in the air. Be part of the much needed educational revolution.

Description

Great innovations aren't results of a wealth of knowledge, they are results of the human imagination. A great lecture can only give knowledge, but creating a conducive environment to think in the right direction can make one innovate.

As an example, if Newton's laws are to be taught, instead of merely saying "These are the laws", we make you go through multimedia stories, animations and games thus simulating the situation that Newton was in, so that you can come up with Newton's laws on your own. We are thus creating the necessity that is the mother of invention.

We do not teach. We do the opposite. We let you come out with ideas rather than fill you with them. We've built some great courses with world class animations and plot lines, as well as our own seamless educational social network. Recently, an intern has hacked for us an educational video maker using which you can draw on screen by moving your hand in thin air. It has twenty more features as well.

We are sure you love stories, games and animation. Why not use them to educate yourself, and that too by reinventing rather than learning?

Experience reinvention through stories. Experience our latest technological advancements hands-on. Share with us your thoughts in further advancing the educational revolution.

Requirements

Passion to innovate and being passionate about the cause of good education. An open mind is a welcomed bonus.

Technical: Projector and sound system
