Makershala is a community that facilitates students to learn, tinker, make, innovate and collaborate on projects at MRIS-51 Gurugram. The program enables students to develop a scientific temperament and innovation mindset by working collaboratively on STEM-based activities and real-life projects. While working on these projects, students get the deep knowledge of the concept and also the practical applications of the same. Engineering Design Process and Design Thinking lays the foundation of the entire program.
“Tell me and I forgot, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
The program is implemented in a dedicated digital fabrication lab, MAKERSHALA equipped with low and high-tech tools which students access as a part of their curriculum and also work after school hours on their projects(Makers Event). The program follows a progression which allows each student to take control of their learning by taking up challenges and developing at their pace.
Makershala also enables students to show their in-built as well as learnt knowledge in various national and international avenues such World Robotics Olympiad, First Lego League, Innoskill, Robofest, F1 for schools etc. where they get recognized & rewarded for their skills and ideas. Along with this, students get regular opportunities to showcase their talent and their day-to-day activities at school level. Makershala timely communicates with the parents of the students so that they can get a clear picture of their child’s activities.
