Maker’s Lab

GGIS Makers lab
What is a Maker’s Lab?

It is a space where you get together to build things. You will find different kinds of materials one would need to build a prototype for an idea. A Maker’s Lab is an amalgamation of science, art, design, robotics and free-spirit.

Which students use Maker’s Lab?

Maker’s Lab is a part of the curriculum at GGIS from Grade 1 onwards. It inculcates a spirit of exploration in the students.

What is the purpose of Maker’s Lab?

The primary purpose is to develop a culture of making in our students. When one is able to creatively channelise one’s energies into making and tweaking, it diminishes any destructive activities. Students then are involved in creating rather than complaining. They shall start to see opportunities in ​difficulties. And that would mean a lifetime of learning.

Is there a school with a Maker’s Lab?

GGIS is the first one to start with a dedicated Lab like this. A few schools do offer short term workshops but none in Ahmedabad have it as a part of their primary years curriculum. There are many higher study institutions where you would find one. There is a FabLab at CEPT University which you can visit.
