Innovation Hub

What is an Innovation Hub?

An Innovation Hub is place which provides facilities to nurture new ideas and help develop inquisitive perspective in youths of today. These hubs serve as springboards for new ideas and innovation and thus helping the society and economy to face future challenges and meet rising aspirations of the growing population. Specifically, embedding such creative pedagogies in science education through Innovation ‘Hubs’ would have potential to retain talent in modern science.

Facilities at the Innovation Hubs:

  1. Discovery Hall: This area will have 10 to 15 interactive science exhibits/ experiments to create excitement about science through exploration and discovery of underlying principles. This will help promote logical thinking.
  2. Innovation Resource Centre and Hall of Fame: This space will be used to showcase innovative ideas/products/implements that have transformed our world or have made significant impact on the way we conduct our lives along with respective inventors & innovators. Stories or inspirations behind such innovations/inventions will also be mentioned through appropriate modes. Besides these, implements/ samples of appropriate technology and traditional knowledge systems, art and craft and other areas of importance in public life in the respective regions shall be exhibited.
  3. Idea Lab: This lab will have necessary basic facilities to pursue creative and innovative hobbies/activities that involve basic science experimentation, model making, design & fabrication of useful gadgets of practical use, teaching / learning kits or aids for better classroom transactions, testing of samples like soil, water, food items etc.
    1. Break & Remake Corner: Students learn to do things with their own hands, dismantle, re-assemble and re-make devices / gadgets.
    2. Build from scraps: Students learn more by doing things practically using day to day scrap.
    3. Idea Box: Students generate their own innovative ideas and create an idea bank. The best ideas are chosen for experimentation/model making/project work.
  4. Design Studio: This area will offer creative environment to design of various objects products etc.
