Level 3 (Ages 11 to 14)

The projects are designed to be low on resources and technology free. These are developed keeping the learning outcomes of the specified age group in mind. We have attempted to make the projects engaging and related to multiple subjects and learning. Each of the projects is across approximately a week for about an hour a day, these can help in contexts without online-schooling options or supplement it.

We intend for these projects to be adapted and contextualized to your context. Please do share feedback of student work and updated projects using the following link: Feedback Form
