Make education relevant and make childhood an age of exploration, identification and pursuation

Out of Syllabus

location_on Noida, India
The standardized curriculum in schools provides knowledge in a disconnected manner to the children, thus making the 12 years of schooling irrelevant for majority of the kids. Children can learn and understand complex concepts if they are made relevant to them via application based interdisciplinary approach of learning.

SSOGR: Smart Satellite Operated Garbage Reminder-The problem statement at hand : The garbage bins get filled to capacity and then overflows before the maintenance workers can empty it for further process. The overflow caused a lot of breeding of disease carriers, foul smell near their houses.This gave them the opportunity to built a ssogr - this deploys the concepts of echolocation, sonar , ultrasonic waves and working of GSM  to send message to the maintenance workers. The Ultrasonic proximity sensor senses the level of the garbage and once the desired limit is achieved it sends message to the people.The phase one of the project is done while the phase 2 is going on.
The summer holidays in India are generally a fun filled time for the children as they travel to their grand parents. This does not always mean a happy time for the plants back home .The children came up with the idea of using technology and building on the concepts of structure of soil, conductivity and dielectric built an algorithm which checks if the plant is thirsty for water or not. If yes, it switches on a motor connected with the concept of drip irrigation. 
Problem at hand : cyclists run out of battery to run their lights during long distance travelSolution that Imbue children developed : Using a dynamo to convert kinetic energy to electric energy. What made children really learn the concepts of a dynamo and energy conversion was the application of the same in real life on their own cycles. Education was made real and relevant by making it experiential and application based. The assessment is the actual usage of the solution by the children themselves not grades based on a written test
At Imbue children learn by solving problems. This makes them explore whats the best solution and learn in the process. An example was creating a Arduino powered blind stick to make navigation easy for the blind. The pedagogy followed was to first get the children to empathize with the problem, moving to them brainstorming with their team on possible solutions, researching on existing solutions, seeking for knowledge which they might require to build their prototype, creating their prototype, testing it and relearning to make it better. The children tested their blind stick with a blind student and received feedback. Seeing their creation actually being of use to someone in real life made the children seek more knowledge to work on newer problems. Empathy, teamwork and reflection are values that they imbibe during the process
