Tutora posted the 82 Hottest EdTech Tools of 2017. I have decided to post re each, and we start with #50 on the list:

50. ButterflyFields – DIY Science Projects for 8 to 13 Year Olds

As nominated by Noshir Colah, Partner at Aavishkaar.

Butterfly Fields was founded by people with a passion to create more ‘doers’ in India. They felt that the Indian educational system, with its emphasis on theory and exams, was taking the joy out of learning and more importantly, its very purpose. As with many great journeys, Butterfly Fields began its journey by asking some simple questions that challenged the status quo:

  • Shouldn’t education be more about understanding and less about marks?
  • Shouldn’t schools be training children in improving intelligence rather than memory?
  • Shouldn’t learning be about solving real-life problems rather than answering some questions in a paper?

The ButterflyFields Innovative DIY kits have been designed indigenously by their in house R&D team comprising of highly qualified engineers and designers from top institutions. These products have been tried and tested as part of school programs by over 5000 children.
