• A tinkering lab to bring out the innovator in your Child

    We provide project based, customised workshops on robotics, coding, electronics, design thinking, 3D printing to help your child develop the confidence to use these skills for problem solving and to strengthen STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) concepts. We provide them exposure to state of the art tools and gadgets to give wings to their imagination. Workshops are split into modules based on skill and age. of your child .

     

    For Ages: 6+

    Summer Camps (May 14 - June 30, 2018)

    Ages 6-12 and Ages 12-18

     

    Training for WRO and IRC Open League by leading trainers also being offered during summers.

    Call 9811419725 for details. Also help your child choose from exciting workshops on Design Thinking (using cardboard construction, electronics, up-cycled material), 3D Design/Printing, Pre-robotics (Dot/Dash, Sphero and Lego WeDo), Robotics (Avishkaar and Lego Mindstorms EV3), Electronics (littleBits and Arduino), Coding (ScratchJr, Scratch, PYTHON, Java), Web Designing, Wood working, and much more.

    Tinkering Sessions in Shiv Nadar School, Gurgaon

    In collaboration with TYMF, we conducted tinkering sessions at Shiv Nadar School, Gurgaon as an after school program.In first few sessions, they brought a futuristic creature of their imagination to life, using Dash-the robot. They designed a board game in which the robot moved through a creative habitat and made halts to showcase its behavioural features as imagined by its creator.

     

    Students were walked through the Design Thinking process and they built projects using paper circuits, cardboard construction. Each of the activity engaged them in Futuristic Problem Solving process and lay the foundation for national and international competitions like FPSPI, Destination Imagination, Odyssey of Mind etc.

  • Raising Future Ready Children

    "When a flower doesn't bloom you fix the environment in which it blooms, not the flower." - Alexander Den Heiier

    Coding/Electronics/Robotics/3D Printing

    Scratch, Python, Java, Age appropriate circuit kits, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Lego and much more

    The ability to code separates those who merely have an idea from those who can make their ideas a reality.

    If you want your child to be a thinker and innovator who can bring ideas to life, encourage him to learn how to program, to see how an electronic circuit works, and to design and manoeuvre a robot to make it do what she wants. These skills give children confidence that they can be designers and builders.

    Tinkering

    Learning by doing and experiencing

    Our maker workshops focus on putting skills to work. They put theoretical knowledge in perspective by solving challenges based on real life scenarios. They give an opportunity to your child work with his/her hands, experience and feel the problem, invent and reinvent a solution and thus give shape to his/her ideas. In the process, you earn where his/her interests and strength lies.

    Projects and Maker Portfolios

    Engineer creative projects and portfolios

    Use your imagination and skills to design and develop useful and innovative class or fun projects which can become part of a strong maker portfolio, a recommended supplement for admissions to reputed engineering colleges.

    Strengthen Science Concepts

    Visual and Hands On Learning

    We use state of the art tools and kits to drive away fear of science and help understand science concepts in a fun and hands on approach through activities/examples from every day life.

    Club Membership

    De-stress, learn, and create at your own time

    Monthly membership gives you the flexibility of time and control. We look at ThINKERS Club as a place of relaxation. Where one can come and immerse in a world of imagination, learning and creation. Members enjoy access to activities and material that enhance logical and analytical thinking as well as discounts on classes/workshops.

  • Members' Experiences

    This is what our members have to say

    A must do for everyone and all ages. I vouch for it and Vihaan (my 7 year old) just loves it! - Sujatha Parthasarthi (Facebook page)

     

    Avi really enjoyed today's session and was excited to share his exploits... Working with wires, battery, miniature motor... being part of the act of making a crude plotter that actually drew on paper! Great going Thinkers Club! - Rituraj Kapila (Facebook page)

     

    a fantastic opportunity for kids to learn while playing. They get to know about the concepts which seemingly sound esoteric in a classroom environment ! Thanks to vinti & her team - Anjali Mamgain (Facebook group)

  • About the Team

    A team of passionate like minded change makers

    Vinti Doshi

    Founder, Thinkers Club

    My dream project

    An electronics engineer by education, I worked as a Senior Information Security Engineer with the US Department of Defence for over ten years. I was involved in active research in Database Security and have a number of publications to my credit.

     

    I have been a hands on parent of two daughters. Elder one after completing her undergrad from Miranda House and Masters from Boston University , is working as a data scientist in US with a leading pharmaceutical company. Younger one completed her undergrad in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT, USA and is pursuing Masters in AI/Machine Learning from MIT.

     

    I have been deeply interested in alternate methods of teaching students to make learning fun. Apart from being an active volunteer at my daughters’ schools, I have kept myself updated with developments in STEM education, have met experts, and attended workshops and conferences whenever possible both in India and US.

     

    I have a team of experts and trainers helping out in taking my vision and mission forward. The prerequisite for working with me is to share the same passion for teaching and keeping the fire burning in students.
