Students learn a tremendous amount through maker-centered learning experiences, whether these experiences take place inside or outside of makerspaces and tinkering studios. There is no doubt that students learn new skills and technologies as they build, tinker, re/design, and hack, especially when they do these things together. However, the most important benefits of maker education are neither STEM skills nor technical preparation for the next industrial revolution. Though these benefits may accrue along the way, the most salient benefits of maker-centered learning for young people have to do with developing a sense of self and a sense of community that empower them to engage with and shape the designed dimension of their world.

In the pilot phase, 5-6 rural IT/Nenasala Centers will be on-boarded. Only centers with the right commitment will be chosen. ~20 students will be selected for the program from each center after an interview.

All students will be going through a 4 Months long physical computing training. These sessions will be delivered by STEMUP Trainers according to the project curriculum.

After that training, students will be trained on logical thinking, problem solving, presentation skills

and basic marketing strategies. Students will be asked to identify a real-world problem/challenge. Then student groups will be coached/mentored by STEMUP Campus Experts. Best groups of each centers will compete in the final inter-makerspace 24-hour hackathon.
