Education isn't evolving fast enough to prepare young people for the world driven by disruptive forces such as AI & Climate Change etc. Lumi is building an AI-augmented & gamified platform that allows them to build future skills while solving big global issues collaboratively. Lumi came about when a 10yr old came up with an idea to use drones during Covid to help patients & doctors!
Lumi runs Quests, a facilitated and fun design-thinking-led programme designed with & accredited by experts from Stanford University.
- Upto ten young people from any background, school or country come together and pick one global problem linked to UNSDGs (e.g, Climate change) or a business topic chosen by a corporate sponsor (e.g., Cybersecurity)
- They undertake 15 live, socratic sessions facilitated by a trained university student, combined with structured asynchronous work on the Lumi platform to tackle the challenge across 4-phases (Identify, Ideate, Prototype, Test)
- They use latest tech. and AI-driven tools to come up with tangible innovations
- The process also helps them develop a personalised Lumi Skills Passport, which showcases their proficiency in Entrepreneurship, Human-AI collaboration and Design Thinking, with a strong focus on ethics & values
The Quest is designed to fit into any school curriculum and is delivered across 15 weeks in a term or in an 1-week hackathon.
Lumi is B2B focused today and works with schools & companies who either sponsor the Quests in underserved schools or use them to train their apprentices or graduates.
We have worked with 15+ schools in UK, India, S.Korea, Singapore, Mexico & the UAE. They paid for the Quests themselves or offered it as an extra-curricular programme paid for by parents. Our focus today is on deeepr collaboration with select schools to integrate Lumi into the curriculum for each child develops a personal Skills Passport.
We are also working with leading companies to develop early talent, business innovation through young people or to drive ESG impact. Our ultimate goal is to inspire a million 10 to 25-year-olds from around the world to become the changemakers, entrepreneurs, and innovators of tomorrow.
All you need is to assemble up-to ten, 10-25 year olds from any background, country or gender who choose a topic and start the Quest. Alternatively you can put us in touch with a school or company who wish to run/sponsor a Quest.
