Our Unique Curriculum

Pathway to Innovation

Our special curriculum is called “Pathway to Innovation” takes children and young learners on a guided journey through learning to think creatively, learning coding and technology skills required to build innovative ideas and learning the business skills required to convert problems and ideas into businesses, designed specifically and broken down for childrenn and teenagers.

The learning pathway delivers the outcome of every child to becoming a highly skilled tech entrepreneur in 2-5 years without dropping out of normal school. Some children who decide not to take the entrepreneurial route come out as highly skilled and sought after team members. Pathway to Innovation can be delivered as an alternative educational pathway to in-school children, implemented as an afterschool program or integrated into existing educational curriculum.

Pathway to Innovation is making a significant contribution to eradicating unemployment, workplace unproductivity and eventually through providing useful and practicable skills to children and young learners.

Pathway to Innovation directly contributes to the realization of five of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically:

No Poverty

Quality Education

Gender Equality

Decent Work and Economic Growth

Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

Pathway in levels

The Pathway is broken into four levels

SuperStart Level

The goal of this level is to help students develop a solid foundation for a lifetime of innovation. . . 

Advanced Level

This level teaches the important coding skills required to build usable and functional programs. Students get to practise. . . 

GoPro Level

The Pro Level teaches programming and tech for the real world. Every student coming into this level is already . . . 

StartUp Bootcamp

The StartUp Bootcamp is designed to help students identify local and global problems, apply design . . . 

SuperStart Level

The goal of this level is to help students develop a solid foundation for a lifetime of innovation.

This level contains about 24 learning modules. By the time a child is graduating from this level, they will have learned analytical thinking, computational thinking and become very comfortable with the problem solving process.

They would be able to manipulate simple computer challenges, solve semi-complex coding puzzles, and apply critical thinking to solve problems even when they have never seen the problems before.

This module recognizes that before someone can innovate with coding, they should be familiar with problem solving and innovative thinking. This module seeks to address that while laying the foundations for coding.

Duration

It can be completed in 3-6 months as an after-school or extra-curricular program, or in less time if pursued intensively.

Entry Requirements

Advanced Level

This level teaches the important coding skills required to build usable and functional programs.

Students get to practice solving bigger problems and turning their solutions into products they can relate with. We use two development outcomes to measure progress at this level – Building games and building mobile Apps.

By the time students are completing this level, they would be very confident in their coding skills and would be able to solve problems with their tech skills. They would only now need to apply the same thinking and coding skills using the tools and technologies used in the business world.

This level also transitions students from block based programming to programming with text. It contains 40 modules which can be covered between 6 to 12 months and covers more complex programming topics.

Duration

It can be completed in 6 to 12 months.

Entry Requirements

GoPro Level

The Pro Level teaches programming and tech for the real world. Every student coming into this level is already comfortable with programming.

This level has a foundational module and then splits into specializations.

  1. Foundational Module: HTML, CSS & Python
  2. Specializations
  • Development Track
  • Design Track
  • Data Track
  • Tech Business Track

At the end of the Pro level, students can either independently or collaboratively build full-scale data-driven websites and applications and have skills ready to be applied to real-world problems. There’s an option for internship placements after the Pro Level and students can choose to take multiple specializations.

Duration

The duration varies.

Startup Bootcamp

The StartUp Bootcamp is designed to help students identify local and global problems, apply design-thinking to create multiple solution options, check for the feasibility of each solution, create a business model around the solution, build the technology needed to power their business ideas, build a prototype or MVP, do a market research and create a launch plan, ready to bootstrap.

At the end of the StartUp bootcamp, every student would be leading a new team starting a new business or social enterprise, or would have identified a team to partner with as a co-founder. Every student ends the bootcamp a founder or co-founder ready to take on a real problem in the world.

Duration

6 Months
