NEW DELHI: Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar’s Curiosity Lab will conduct ‘Camp Inspire’ that will enable school children to think about alternative passions and career choices.

Camp Inspire 2022 particularly designed for students of classes 8 to 12 will take place online from June 3 to 5.

Students would hear the journey of inspiring individuals who broke away from commonly tracked paths to follow their passion as a career and became immensely successful.

The speakers, mostly IIT-ians, from leaders to influencers and change-makers who inspire the next generation.

This would also serve as a footstep for students to interact with faculty from institutions of higher education along with generating curiosity among school children about sports, gender, music research, entrepreneurship, STEM and economics.

Prof Jaison A Manjaly, Principal Investigator, Curiosity Lab, IIT Gandhinagar, said, “Curiosity Camps offer an opportunity for students, teachers, and parents to witness stories of inspiring individuals that may encourage them to follow their passions and make a positive change in society.”

“The Curiosity Camps aim to introduce novel perspectives in learning while building awareness of the multiple career paths that exist and are supported by institutions such as the IITs,” Prof Manjaly said.

The camp will conclude with a filmmaking workshop titled ‘Stories through visuals: The art of filmmaking’ by Keerthi Raj BS and will host a filmmaking competition with cash prizes worth Rs 10,000.

The workshop will teach storytelling fundamentals and how to use available resources to tell engaging audio-visual stories.
