On our path of empowering kids through technology, this is an attempt to educate them on design thinking concepts through maker activities. This initiative was undertaken at a rural school with the active contribution of our volunteer team.
The primary goal was to introduce knowledge on technology to kids and let them use them to innovate in a constructive manner and solve problems existing at their locality. Unlike, several sophisticated maker space campaigns, this has been a tinkering workshop, boosting and embracing innovation and creativity among rural kids opening doors for innovation at every household and every corner of our country regardless of economic and other resource barriers.
However, unlike other campaigns, the active engagement of kids was a happy pill for all of us volunteers.
