Project Synopsis

The Curiosity Gym Educational Foundation (CGEF) is dedicated to the establishment of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) labs in schools throughout India. Our primary goal with this project is to offer high-quality STEM education. This is done initially by repurposing existing classrooms or reusing labs within the school premises or spaces in community centres, equipped with essential amenities such as electricity, computers, and internet access. CGEF has already successfully launched a STEM lab in Pune, with generous CSR sponsorship from Galaxy Office Automation. We've also joined forces with the Smart Village Movement, in collaboration with Berkeley Haas, to implement similar programs, which are currently thriving in four different rural locations in Meghalaya and Gujarat states. We are open to collaboration with government bodies, NGOs, and corporations to broaden our impact. We have a clearly defined budget and timeline in place to ensure efficient resource allocation and on-time project completion. By supporting this initiative, your organization will play a crucial role in advancing STEM education and preparing students for a promising future.
