Sunita's Makerspace is where the mundane teaching ends and excitement of learning begins. This is the space where you can Dream It, Design It and Create It. It is the space for tools, projects, mentors and expertise. A collection of tool does not define a Makerspace. Rather we define it by what it enables, Making. Gajera Trust wanted to create a Makerspace as a learning environment with rich possibilities.
At Sunita's Makerspace, we focus on skill development that enables children to put into practice easily and techniques taught are appropriate to their age. At Sunita's Makerspace we want to create a space for collaboration where young people can learn and share their interests, hobbyists can share their knowledge, "old-fashioned" skills are re-learned and re-examined, and mid-career workers can gain inspiration. We want to provide an environment of participatory learning where it's OK to take chances and make mistakes, where one is encouraged to learn at one's own pace.To teach people from all age groups and walks of life to learn through doing or "participatory learning" We will provide after school classes with a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology Engineering Art and Math) education.
To create a collaborative, affordable, and inspirational educational environment where people at all stages of life can access old and new skill sets, cross-pollinate ideas, become active and thoughtful consumers, and become innovators who build healthy and sustainable communities.
