CENTER FOR CREATIVE LEARNING AT IIT GANDHINAGAR
The Center for Creative Learning came into being in April 2017, as a space that nurtures a scientific temper and the inherent creativity in students and teachers alike. The idea was, and remains, to immerse oneself in a subject in order to learn it, to do rather than read. We need to make our classes engaging, provide experiential learning, foster creativity and innovation with sole focus on concepts. What started from an empty 400 sq feet room has today, 3 years later, become 3 rooms full of 1000+ unique STEM models and activities, created by us. Having conducted 100+ STEM and hands-on learning workshops for over 10,000 teachers and engineering college professors, and interacted with 100,000 students from all across the country – is what keeps us going in our mission to bring back the gleam in the eyes!
We all learn best when we do, make, explore. Pull things apart, put them back together. Our current system, competitive and fast-paced environment however, seldom provides space for such learning. The purpose of this initiative is to provide a space where learning can be joyous, experiential, leading to conceptual understanding. With our outreach activities we intend to create scientific temper and nurture inherent creativity in larger population.
