Many ‘learn to code’ programs in India currently focus on working with a population that has upgraded the computer system. Gyanada Labs focuses on upgrading the existing infrastructure and creating affordable spaces to tinker, experiment and explore in under-resourced schools, non-profits, and local communities.
Our delivery model works on strengthening young engineering students and professionals by exposing them to real-time classroom experience where they get the opportunity to apply their learnings and leadership skills with children who have minimum exposure to tech education. While we have a curriculum framework, we give them the freedom to bring day-to-day level innovations into the classroom that engages children with technology in real-time and make a difference in their communities.

Many curriculums are borrowed curriculums that are not contextualized to children who have zero possessing knowledge and access to computers in India. We cater to such children from the age group of 12-15 years by creating content that is offline and relevant to their learning levels.
To map the impact of a program assessment plays a vital role. Internationally, not many organizations have an assessment model that consistently maps the learning trajectory of a child. We have created an assessment framework that continuously maps the progress of the child through a structured model that includes plugged, unplugged activities, challenges, and assessments at three levels.
