Our focus is on developing alternative methods and materials which help children learn concepts and make connections with what they already know and experience in their real life. Our logo, a common paper toy is used symbolically to represent our learning apparatus. This toy is usually made of ordinary paper but if it is used in a particular way, it can explain the scientific principles behind windmills and turbines.
Similar to a paper toy, the material, and design of our learning apparatus is very close to the real-life of children. They can think and feel with them. The inherent properties of familiar materials are used. Appropriate activities have been developed so that while using them a learner discovers knowledge, and several new ideas are triggered. Thus, enhancing the quality of instruments through which children look at, interpret and make different concepts intelligible.
