S.T.E.A.M School is a 2-week long purpose-based hands-on learning program focused on bringing together young leaders from various disciplines under one roof to build solutions and prototypes aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals.

It is an opportunity for anyone to:

  • Dive deeper into the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Understand and upgrade your skills with Digital Fabrication, Arduino, Electronics, Augmented and Virtual Reality
  • Use frugal innovation to come up with novel, cost-effective solutions
  • Gain experience in product innovation/development life-cycle

Goals under focus

As a S.T.E.A.M School participant, you’ll be opened up to goals and targets to be met by 2030 by our SDG panel. Through workshops and sessions in Design Thinking you’ll learn how to frame problem statements and propose solutions in those areas.


S.T.E.A.M School methodology focusses on bringing an interdisciplinary group together who collectively empathise with problems of the local community and then use design thinking as a tool to propose plausible solutions.

These solutions with the support of digital fabrication tools and perspective of frugal innovation/jugaad become into tangible products/services by the end of the program
