STEM Education

Svarnim's goal is to bridge the gap between scientific concepts taught in schools and the practical issues young students face within their families and communities. To achieve this objective, Svarnim undertakes various activities that encourage students to develop an interest and proficiency in STEM subjects, as this has been shown to have a direct and positive impact on communities.


Svarnim’s approach to promoting STEM education involves transforming scientific principles and theories into practical activities that actively involve young students from an early age. In contrast to the traditional chalkboard-based (theory-based) teaching method employed in government and government-aided schools, Svarnim has launched a practical learning-based STEM initiative. This program involves conducting experiments to teach fundamental concepts, and the key resource persons, i.e., teachers, have undergone specialized training. These teachers will be responsible for monitoring and instructing students in their respective schools.




India has a young population, with an average age of 29 and around 28% of the population being youth. However, there has been a growing focus on utilizing this demographic dividend to drive economic progress. Sri Aurobindo Society aims to contribute to this goal by establishing a STEM Resource Centre catering to students from middle, high, and higher secondary levels.

The centre will not only focus on academic lessons but also cultivate human values, social and environmental responsibility, and leadership qualities in children. The current rote-learning based education system primarily focuses on memorization techniques to help students clear examinations. However, the STEM resource centre aims to bridge the gap by providing hands-on learning experiences and simulations that will prepare students to solve real-world problems faced by industries, governments, and communities.

Experiential learning is rooted in the belief that “experience is the best teacher.” Learning experiences that take place outside the classroom can be highly effective in enhancing learning and fostering personal and social development. Students who engage in such experiences have higher levels of motivation, better recall of course material, and improved academic performance. Early field experiences can be particularly formative and can inspire students to pursue their interests further.

STEM-based experiential education that focuses on the students’ lived environment can also play a vital role in protecting nature. By raising appreciation of nature, imparting scientific problem-solving skills, and instilling a sense of responsibility, students can become inventors of solutions rather than mere users of existing knowledge. The opportunities for growth and progress are limitless for a young India that creates capabilities for educational growth and new solutions.
