112 students of Grade- IX along with 6 Educators participated in The Innovation Project.
What is Innovation ?
- We explored ! We deliberated ! We Brainstormed !
To trigger this thought and to find answers we watched number of videos.
We now fastened the Innovation belts. All ready to Think and Create ! My students were excited, my Educators were excited. There was so much of learning even for the mentor.
Our week one report is :
We deliberated upon United Nation's 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Would our Innovations make cities sustainable ?
Would our Innovations lead to finding a solution to No Hunger ?
Would our Innovations lead to find ways to protect our planet ?
Thoughts.... So many thoughts in our minds.
An Opportunity knocked the door !
We visited Science Expo at Lovely Professional University, India. After the visit, the mood was set. My students started thinking, deliberating and tinkering on ideas, they were exposed to in the University & the videos they watched initially. My students were now a serious lot.
Day 1: 15th April, 2018 when we first met, they were restless and distracted.
Day 10 : 25th April, 2018 after the visit, they were focused, ready to Innovate.
Now the prototypes were in the making.
Preparing Prototypes was the priority No.-1. This was followed by preparing the tutorials, explaining how they prepared them. We went ahead and put up The Innovation Project during The Learning Market Place.
We were in News....
Print and Electronic Media covered the Innovation Project.
The local TV channel crew interviewed the students.
