Programs for Schools
We believe that there is a need to change the form and content of education.From studying discrete subjects in water tight compartments, we need to shift the teaching to be more holistic, bringing out inter-relationships between various subjects. The content also needs to be updated to take into account the future needs of the society.
We offer an annual holistic program for 'Developing 21st Century Learning Skills in Students', which comprises of a basket of 7 distinct workshops for students of Grades 5th to 10th, 5 professional development workshops for teachers and 1 awareness workshop for parents.
The content of the Space Science workshop is approved & certified by the Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs, US Department of State (ECA) and International Research & Exchange Board (IREX) and has been successfully implemented in as many as 15 schools so far. Additionally, The Media Literacy module – 'Juniorscoop' is a award winning project of the Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund (AEIF) by Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs, US Department of State (ECA).
SFEL will facilitate domain experts to interact with the students and take sessions to enhance their skills. Many of these experts are on the Advisory Panel of SFEL. The program would also offer a unique opportunity of life long mentorship by domain experts. The qualitative and quantitative tangible results post the workshops enable the progress of the child to be measured and monitored.
