In an exciting development for education in Gujarat, two innovation hubs were successfully launched in the month of June, promising to open new doors of opportunity and interest in STEM subjects for students. These innovation hubs, established at Shri S.M. Shah Vidyamandir, Savali, Vadodara, Gujarat (for students in grades 9-12), and Eklavya Model Residential School, Waghodia, Vadodara, Gujarat (for students in grades 6-12), are poised to revolutionize the way students engage with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The establishment of these innovation hubs is a collaborative effort between the Smart Village Movement and Curiosity Gym, aimed at fostering STEM education. To kickstart this initiative, a comprehensive teacher training program was conducted to empower educators with the skills and knowledge needed to conduct experiential-learning-based STEM sessions effectively. The ultimate goal is to align the learning outcomes with the New Education Policy (NEP) and make STEM subjects more accessible and engaging for students.

During the three-day teacher training program, a wide range of activities was undertaken to equip teachers and students with the necessary tools and understanding.
These innovation hubs are poised to ignite a passion for STEM subjects among students, providing them with hands-on experiences and practical knowledge that will not only enhance their understanding but also equip them with valuable skills for the future. The collaboration between the Smart Village Movement and Curiosity Gym promises to be a significant step towards a more innovative and knowledge-driven education system in Gujarat. Students and teachers alike can look forward to a brighter and more engaging future in STEM education.
