IIT Gandhinagar’s Curiosity Lab to host Camp Inspire for School Children

:- The sessions aim is to introduce students to the stories of people who have taken up new and exciting professions and succeeded


Gandhinagar: Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar’s Curiosity Lab is hosting an online camp for school students of classes 8 to 12 besides teachers, parents, and scholars of education to inspire, encourage exploration and build curiosity.

The sessions aim is to introduce students to the stories of people who have taken up new and exciting professions and succeeded. The idea is to enable students to learn that inspiration can strike from anywhere, be it a book, a person or a movement and that such inspiring stories could be found all around. However, one rarely hears from the person who had lived through that story. The people who inspire someone today was also once inspired by others.

They came across stories that they resonated with and found the motivation to grow into a leader, influencer, change-maker to create an impact that inspires the next generation. Through Camp Inspire, IIT Gandhinagar brings together some incredible individuals who took unique paths and chose to follow their passions despite many obstacles. 

Curiosity Lab conducts scientific research to understand how to improve curiosity among students while learning. The Curiosity Camps are a Curiosity lab outreach initiative to increase interest and make learning fun.

Highlighting the unique aspects of Camp Inspire, Prof. Jaison A Manjaly, Principal Investigator, Curiosity Lab, IIT Gandhinagar, said, “The Curiosity Camps aim to introduce novel perspectives in learning while building awareness of the multiple career paths that exist and are supported by institutions such as the IITs.”

Most students, parents and teachers are unaware of the possibilities that lie ahead today for students in Arts and Humanities, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine) fields and entrepreneurship. The Curiosity Lab introduces these possibilities to parents, teachers and students. Camp Inspire will be held from June 3 to 5, 2022. Interested candidates can register using the following link:
