A note about Vigyan Ashram :
Vigyan Ashram is an experiment oriented towards rural development through work centric educational system. It is an effort to impart scientific temperament to people by demystifying science and technology and empowering people to find solutions to their own problems.
Developing entrepreneurial skills is an important part of this educational system. ‘Learning while doing’ and ‘Multi skill training’ prepares a person for the real life situation. Vigyan Ashram believes that if these principles are incorporated in the formal schooling system, education could be more relevant and meaningful.
The IBT program evolved by Vigyan Ashram is being successfully implemented in 25 schools today. The target is to reach to 100 schools in next two years.
