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.
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.
Experiment based learning helps students to develop curiosity, scientific temper, cognitive learning skills. It helps shape the scientist of tomorrow.
We integrate problem solving, computational thinking and design thinking with programming to train students to be diverse coders.
We work with educational institutes, non-profit and corporate companies, government institutions with the following goals:
To help students learn and practice computational thinking through worksheet and activity-based learning
To integrate computational thinking in teaching core subjects – mathematics, science, art, social sciences, sports
To develop curiosity and scientific temper in the school children and, to shape the future scientists through experimental and experiential learning.
Provide contemporary and innovative development for STEAM teachers and educators
Empower teachers to create and share their work
To accelerate research and development of computational thinking and experiment-based learning.
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.
