We at Ekya Schools believe that students have to understand that they have the abiility to make a change in this world. And we want to equip them with the skills to do that. Through Ekya’s Design Thinking process, students here acquire skills like research, organization, empathy, creative thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and public speaking and presentation techniques in a hands-on manner.
Ekya Design Challenge 2020 | Help Bengaluru Lead A Healthier Lifestyle
The Ekya Design Challenge equips students with the skills to research, define problems, develop prototypes for possible solutions and work on ways to address various challenges. At the heart of this challenge, are students trying to solve problems that affect people.
This year, our students at Ekya School BTM Layout, JP Nagar and ITPL have been actively working on the challenge for the year “How might we create solutions to help citizens in Bengaluru lead a healthier lifestyle?” for the past few weeks. On 18 January 2020 at the Bangalore International Centre (BIC) Indiranagar, students will showcase their exhibits, with their solutions to help citizens of Bengaluru lead a healthier lifestyle.
