Ekya Schools, a chain of CMR Group of K-12 schools, Bengaluru, celebrated a significant milestone in K-12 education with the unveiling of Ekya Nava – Asia-EMEA’s inaugural K-12 Maker School of Innovation, Creativity, and Design in Bengaluru on Nov 6. Ekya Nava encourages students to transcend traditional classroom confines, immersing themselves in varied, real-world scenarios to foster enduring adaptability and growth.
Dr. Tristha, Founder of Ekya Schools says, “Ekya NAVA is more than a school – it’s a mindset, a path to a different kind of education. Backed by global advisors, we’re not here to just teach. We’re here to awaken the fire within each student. Our curriculum is not the usual playbook, it is a dynamic journey that uncovers passions, unleashes purpose, and propels learning beyond expectations. As an advocate for progressive education, we’re on a mission to foster a cohort of dynamic, visionary individuals set to leave a profound mark on the world.”
Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Union Minister of State for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship and Electronics & Information Technology, who launched the initiative said, “I heartily congratulate team Ekya Nava for thinking beyond their imagination. This pioneering initiative will empower students to explore their unique callings, reshaping traditional education norms. India is at an inflexion point, the opportunities in front of young India are infinite and the power to realize this potential truly lies in the education of our youth and the skills they acquire.’”
“Creating Extraordinary Educators: A Teacher’s Roadmap to Becoming Extraordinary” authored by Ekya educators and compiled by Ekya School’s Professional Development Institute, with Dr. Tristha Ramamurthy, Founder, Ekya Schools, was also released.
