Welcome To Curio O Box
Curio O Box is making foundation level education more Experience and Innovation based through the concept of Experiential learning. We work with Schools, Parents, Kids and some Business organizations to make Science easy and Fun. We create experiments, activities and gadgets to open young minds to Science in an exciting and engaging way.
At Curio O Box we are focused to make foundation level education more application and experience based. We focus on methods like Do It Yourself kits and Hands on Learning which are most optimum methods for Experiential learning As children begin to apply what they learn, there will be more doers, more scientists, mathematicians and biologists from third world who will do outstanding work in their chosen fields.
We design and conduct workshops and science sessions for schools and companies. Also we have our own innovation centers spread across Gujarat.
Our schools have a common complaint, that they don’t have time to include anything beyond their regular curriculum. In the same vein, schools may find it difficult to introduce “Hands-on” science activities to every student. We have strong conviction that Doing science is not just beneficial, but absolute necessary to know science in its spirits. Showing science experiments by teachers or using modern tools like virtual labs and e-learning software is not adequate to develop habit of experimentation or gain confidence of doing things by hands. The reason why 3 idiots film became a huge success in India was mainly because it depicted the flaws in educational system, the major drawback being the bookish learning it promotes. Rote learning still plagues our system. Students study only to score marks in exams, and sometimes to crack exams like IIT, JEE, AIIMS or NEET. The practicality of the subjects remains unknown to the students even when they have a graduation in hand. The colonial masters introduced education systems in India to create clerks and civil servants, and we have not deviated much from that pattern till today. Our education system is geared towards teaching and testing knowledge at every level as opposed to teaching and testing skills. The goal of our new education system should be to create entrepreneurs, innovators, artists, scientists and thinkers who can establish the foundation of a knowledge based economy.
It’s time to join hands…
Who can join us?
Parents can enroll their kids for once in a week STEM Club where methodology we apply is BUILD-APPLY-LEARN. In each session kids complete a model and take it home.
Curio O Box works with many schools where the team takes care of Science Club and activities are linked with school syllabus which helps children to understanding things practically.
People who are Science Enthusiastic can join the team and start their own STEM Club and can also work with schools. Curio O Box provides content, support and training for the same.
