Our core belief is that children learn by doing - by touching, feeling, cutting, sticking -- pulling things apart, putting things together. We believe that this hands-on science helps them relate to curriculum and get conceptual understanding. We believe this will revolutionize the way children learn. A child lighting up a LED with a Syringe Generator is more likely to light up his village tomorrow.

Our approach is inclusive. All the materials used in our activities are very affordable and accessible to every child across the globe, developing or developed countries alike. Intuitively using ordinary throwaway stuff -- plastic bottles, cardboard boxes, and newspapers etc. children can explore their natural creative instincts.
Ours is the most cost effective outreach program in the world, with cost of 15 paisa per person (0.2 cents per person). Our videos are accessed by viewers from 234 countries in 18 languages.
We want to design science and math activities to comprehensively cover the whole curriculum. Science concepts will be reinforced through simple toys. Short videos will explain difficult concepts and provide various pathways for children to further explore and deepen their understanding. Our website will help children -- especially from the poorest countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America in making science and math fun using readily available, simple low-cost materials. It will become a valuable resource library for teachers to incorporate in their classes. It will also become an invaluable resource for parents to help their children at home.
