3. Low Cost Maker Space

Low Cost Maker Space (Pilot Mode)


Our Low Cost Maker Space is an evolving tinkering space which provides participants access to tools and basic materials to design, make, prototype, and test ideas.

First, basic infrastructure including space, cross disciplinary materials and tools are set up to start the tinkering process. Next, a touch-point and online process for effective use of the Maker Space is established. Finally a structure for monitoring the usage of the space is laid down.

This is currently being piloted at Mantra 4 Change, Bangalore.

4. Innovation Toolkit

Innovation Toolkit Program (Pilot Mode)


Currently in an experimental mode, this program was a result of three questions :

"What can lead to a culture of design and innovation in school?"

"What systems and structures does a school need to promote design, innovation?"

"How can we ensure a culture of making can be incorporated in a school system?"

Rather than an outsider present in school to conduct workshops or innovation cycles, we work as in insider, closely with the school staff and students.
