About iKen Scientifica Design & Technology Lab

In the fast changing world learning is evolving more than ever. It has become necessary to exposes children to self-learning, problem handling, critical thinking and problem solving early on. The need to engage the learner is all the more necessary to hold their interest and attention. Experiential learning adds a new dimension to the process of thinking and learning and brings about playfulness to learning.

Mexus Education has created this novel program in Design, Technology, Science and Innovation to foster critical thinking and problem solving abilities in students. The program stresses on experiential learning which helps students to establish connections and build on what they know or have learned in an engaging educational environment. Experiential learning involves a, 'direct' encounter with the phenomena being studied rather than merely thinking about the encounter, or only considering the possibility of doing something about it. It is 'education that occurs as a direct participation in the events of life'.

At D&T Lab, learners are encouraged and helped to learn and develop in their own ways, using methods which they find most comfortable and therefore enjoyable. By developing people as individuals - we develop people's confidence, self-esteem, personal strengths, and crucially a rounded sense of purpose and fulfillment which fundamentally improves attitude, life-balance and emotional well-being. These immensely important outcomes are just as important for sustainable productive work and a healthy society as the essential skills and knowledge typically represented in conventional education and training.
