Promoting Computational Thinking

Who are we ?

Kurious EduTech is an EduTech startup recognized under the startup India initiative which focus on ensuring children to be problem solvers, decision makers, and enablers.

What we believe ?

  • Computational Thinking is not all about computers and programming. It is about one’s thought process, approach to solve a problem.
  • Science is an art and must be learnt through experimentation and observation. Observation observation.
  • Curiosity is the key to learning.
  • Integrating CT with core subjects will make them creative, interesting and cool.

What we do ?

  • Teaching 21st century skills – computational thinking, design thinking, programming.
  • Integrating computational thinking in school education
  • Promoting experiment-based science education in schools
  • Continuous professional development for schoolteachers
  • Implementing National Education Policy 2020

Why is CT the need of the hour ?

Computation thinking is a unique combination of skills that helps learners – learn to learn. With the rapid change in technology, our students will work on jobs that don’t even exist today. This requires an ability to continuously learn and the skill to address unseen problems.

Why do we need experimental education ?

Experiment based learning helps students to develop curiosity, scientific temper, cognitive learning skills. It helps shape the scientist of tomorrow.

Why do you need programming ?

  • Programming is essentially logic.
  • Learning to code helps your child develop problem solving skills, logic, thinking ability, creativity, a sense of appreciation of how things work, ability to automate, collaborate and confidence.
  • Learning at a young age gives them more space and time to develop these skills, become efficient and resilient.

How we do ?

  • We organize workshops, float courses for developing 21st century skills.
  • We have tailormade workshops for teachers on teaching and integrating CT.
  • Science kits aligned with the curriculum promote experiment based learning and extended learning.

How are we unique ?

We integrate problem solving, computational thinking and design thinking with programming to train students to be diverse coders.

Why Does Your Child Need Computational Thinking?

Teaching Science:
The right way to do it

How did it all start ?

The genesis for the idea of company comes from my childhood. During my schooling, I was home tutored by my mother. She was a strong believer of activity based learning, as a result she taught me science and mathematics through activities and experiments. This method of teaching was very impactful and fun. I remember spending hours of quality time with my mother and never had a problem understanding the fundamentals. This motivated me to create an environment which will allow activity based learning for every kid.
At Kurious we create science kits based on NCERT curriculum for all the topics present in the textbook. The kit consists of workbook and apparatus required for activities. The workbook contains detailed instructions and worksheets for all the activities. This will allow the child to learn through experimentation and observation. The kits are designed based on computational thinking principles and with all safety precautions.
In 2019, I was a part of the Code India initiative launched by the Office of the Principal Scientific Advisor to the Government of India. The aim of the project was to introduce coding to students at a young age so that they meet the future job requirement skills. I personally observed that most of the students lack computational thinking skills which are fundamental to develop any other skill. This influenced me to start courses on CT for children and to inculcate CT as cross – curriculum in basic sciences and mathematics. The influence of AI across all domains had made learning programming, coding as a civil right. Our programming courses are developed by including computational and design thinking components giving room for students to innovate, think and apply the skills.
