Education is a prerequisite for full participation in modern society. Wouldn’t it be nice if all of us had access to high quality education? Gyanome is a platform for teaching the fundamentals of school maths and science to all the children of India. To start with, this involves:
- Creating basic content around books published by NCERT as the template, emphasizing the ideas and concepts.
- Creating additional resources such as Geogebra applets to supplement the content.
- Facilitating scientist-student interactions online and offline, including the asking and answering of questions, hangouts etc.
Most importantly, we want to be doing all three above in close conjunction with schools with the help of school leaders and NGO’s. We also want to expand our efforts into Indian languages to maximize impact.
