In today’s rapidly evolving world, the ability to navigate challenges, identify opportunities, and foster innovative thinking is essential for students to succeed. An entrepreneurial mindset equips students with the skills and mindset required for their holistic development, enabling them to thrive in both their academic journey and future careers. To address this need, Karkhana, King’s College, and Antarprerana are collaborating to introduce the ‘Entrepreneurial Mindset Empowerment Program,’ a transformative initiative designed for students in Grades 9 to 12.
Entrepreneurial mindset is a set of skills that enable people to identify problems and make the most of opportunities, overcome and learn from setbacks, and succeed in a variety of settings.The primary objective of this course is to empower teachers with the knowledge and skills necessary to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset in their students. By adopting design thinking principles and processes, teachers will be able to foster creativity, critical thinking, and innovation among their students, leading to their holistic development and better preparedness for future challenges.
The primary objective of the Entrepreneurial Mindset Empowerment Program is to cultivate and nurture an entrepreneurial mindset among students, enabling them to become creative, adaptable, and resilient problem solvers.
2. Makerspace and STEAM Club
What is Makerspace?
A makerspace is, as the name suggests, a lab that is equipped to help you make things. It has elements of a science lab, a computer lab, and even a workshop where students can be innovative and bring their most creative ideas to life. Usually, the makerspace is planned for about 220 square feet (about 1 average classroom). This space will accommodate 15-20 students at a time.
What is a STEAM Club?
STEAM Club is a platform for students who are interested in STEAM-related activities to explore the concepts of STEAM beyond the classroom. It can also be understood as a learning space that connects ideas with reality by empowering students through peer-based learning to convert their imagination into physical prototypes.

Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration and Creativity are the 21st century skills that are the need for today's children. Karkhana has not only minimized the time and efforts in the management of teaching materials but also helps to achieve above skills through hands-on activities.
The karkhana kit has been helpful in giving practical concepts, and students are so interested in making different things through the karkhana kit.Therefore, it has been helpful for me in teaching and for students in learning.
