A two-year fellowship (part-time) program for college students and IT professionals, designed at and deployed in under-resourced schools to introduce school children to Computer Programming (CS) and Physical Computing, in order to develop the attributes of real-world problem-solving in the students.

What's in it for you?
  1. The opportunity to lead your classroom activities.
  2. Opportunity to design the learning content of the classes you lead.
  3. The chance to make a difference with knowledge and skill at the core
  4. Hands-on exposure with affordable tech like Raspberry Pi and sensors.
  5. Chance to shape an alternative way of learning and education.
How do we do it?
  1. Two fellows provide an enriching classroom experience to a bunch of 25-30 students from grades 7th to 9th
  2. Provide training and mentoring to fellows on Binary Story curriculum and classroom management techniques.
  3. Provide an opportunity to engage with the age and demographic-specific content for computer programming and physical computing
  4. Organize immersion visits to makerspaces and participating in hackathons
  5. Stimulate the “how” of thinking and not “what” of thinking” for the young minds
  6. Continuous evaluation of varied parameters to map the students’ journey
What impact do you create?
  1. You get to actively immerse into a Global Ecosystem of Changemakers.
  2. Mentor for the young minds to build a strong foundation for them to achieve their dreams.
  3. You take the kids’ learning experience beyond the classrooms and enable the young minds to expand their skill set
  4. Congratulations! You are a lifelong learner
