Harish Srinivasan is an engineer turned educator and the Co-Founder of Infinite Engineers. Missed his HundrED WEB-nesday on October 24th? Catch the recording here:
"Children have a perception that if you’re a teacher, they should believe whatever you say. But we want to help them understand that, in Science especially, you don't have to believe what others say. Experiment and see for yourself. That gave them a lot of pause for thought. Now we don’t push the concepts on students, they learn by doing, testing and asking questions for themselves.”
