Serving over 1 million students, Agastya International Foundation runs mobile science learning labs, Science centers and Labs on Bikes across 23 Indian states. Its mission is “to spark curiosity, nurture creativity, and instill confidence and caring” in economically disadvantaged children and government schoolteachers by bringing imaginative and innovative hands-on STEAM education and design-thinking through experiential, project-based and peer-to-peer learning to schools, across India. Agastya runs one of the largest hands-on science education programs in the world.

Agastya International Foundation’s programs are supported by several corporations and foundations in India.With Class Saathi’s proprietary Bluetooth based clicker technology, facilitators across the country are able to now seamlessly integrate continuous assessment into experiential learning programs.

Experiential learning is at the core of Agastya International Foundation’s work to spark curiosity in children and make learning fun. This is now complemented by data-driven learning through easy assessments, powered by Class Saathi, an AI-powered student engagement and clicker based performance tracking solution developed by TagHive, a Samsung-funded company.

Pankaj Agarwal, CEO at TagHive, a graduate of IIT Kanpur and Harvard, said “Class Saathi powers over 6,000 classrooms in India and South Korea, and we are honored to work with Agastya to bring our technology to even more students across India. We truly believe in the idea of interactive and engaging education, and working with an organization that embodies that concept has been an enriching experience for us. We are looking forward to working with even more Agastya centers in the future.”

Sastry Adiraju, CTO, Agastya International Foundation, said, Class Saathi is helping us build the In-ClassAssessment infrastructure in various government schools we operate in across the country. With its ability to operate without internet, Class Saathi offered a viable, easy-to-use digital platform to administer a variety of assessments we conduct in our schools.
