Think Stations by Team Explore, an after-school developmental centre for children aged 7-14, was launched in Gurgaon recently. The centre, the first of its kind in India, primarily focuses on developing and incorporating 21st century skills and an education framework for empowering young minds. Think Stations is the brainchild of founder and CEO, Gayatri Singh. “Our focus is on ‘21st Century Life Skills’, which are paramount in a world where information delivery is just as important as knowledge generation. We believe that a culture of ‘curiosity’ is essential to maintain interest and create successful learners.” says Gayatri Singh. The framework of this curriculum emphasises the importance of 5Cs: Comprehension, Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking. The modules offered in Think Stations are 'Comprehend' and 'Explore'. 'Comprehend' is an all-inclusive comprehension programme that contains physical and digital formats to help improve a child’s audio, visual and written comprehension, as well as enhance his/her practical literacy. It helps children move away from rote learning. The programme provides children an essential foundation for exams such as SAT, GMAT etc. 'Explore' teaches children current generation skills in a fun and safe environment through innovative and exciting experiments, games, projects and activities. Each 'Explore' tackles a big question such as the science behind roller coasters, the structure of animal and plant cells, or natural disasters like a tsunami. Children are taught to work in teams, research various topics, understand and present them. All materials are provided by the centre, to help showcase concepts through experiments. Children learn to appreciate the latest technologies as productive tools rather than just mere entertainment. More than two decades of brain-based research is driving the educational content at Team Explore. Top-line advisors include Marie Brown, an award-winning US education content specialist and Colin Rose, the UK-based founder of Accelerated Learning Systems. Curriculums are developed in consultation with international partners, which helps keep Team Explore experience the global education climate and of course helps children become better global citizens.
