The typical scenarios in the current education system are “learning by reading “, “learning by listening”, “and learning by watching (makers videos, visiting science expos, museums, demonstrations etc.)”. These methods are not as effective as “Learning by doing”. Primarily, PAT establishes an opportunity that Parents engage the children during weekends. Secondly, Parents work on various fields (it could be on cars, it could be on logistics, it could be on space, it could be on software, it could be on plumbing etc. etc.). PAT extracts “Science” and “Mathematics” from Parents fields and inculcate the same into Children’s foundation education in the form of “Learning by doing”.
PAT is a social entrepreneurial venture that aims for impact on children’s education. As the parents engage their children during weekend (max. two hours) on various subjects in a playful environment, it gives a platform to identify children’s interest on their career at an early stage. It is only of two hours a week, considering not taking more time from their sports and other fun activities. We believe even this two hours going to be more fun to them as it involves more of “doing”, put in their term, “learning by playing”. We found Children feel happy that his/her parent is available to listen and react to their queries. We all believe in Science and Mathematics, and Learning by playing evidently brings our children strong foundations into their “fundamental” education. For parents, the platform provides a unique experience where he/she gains “creativity” from the fellow children friends.
