HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
Around a quarter of the world's population is under 15. These are digital natives. Studies have shown a steep decline in creativity and problem solving as children become adults. I believe that if we could provide the right incentives and a nurturing community for children between the ages of 5-12, we can empower a generation of youth to be creative problem-solvers poised to build a better future!
How does your innovation work in practice?
Once students sign-up, they get access to a wide range of bite-sized hands-on learning activities in a wide range of topics. They can watch these and work on the projects they really love. Once they do, they can share these with a global, moderated kid community to inspire and seek inspiration from. As they share and participate they get recognized for their creativity and problem solving by earning rewards and encouraging them to enter a creative, learning spiral.
How has it been spreading?
We have piloted our approach with ~250 students. Our early access list has over 5000 students signed up from across India. We will soon be launching and targetting 10,000 Monthly Active Users.
If I want to try it, what should I do?
Once the app is live you can find Upepo on the playstore or appstore and download it. You can access all the different features there. Alternatively contact us if you want early access.
