The programme aims to help children understand and apply processes or principals. This enables them to keep learning and pushing their abilities.
To be excellent at anything, we must keep learning and pushing our abilities. In our factory visits, we explore how a world-class manufacturing business achieves this. We focus strongly on the ideas of process design and incremental improvement.
Students visit the factory, understand how it works and then use a simulation to see how they can apply the principles of process design in their own life. It also broadens their horizons of the kinds of roles they can aspire to.
Students experience how anyone can attain excellence if they are willing to pay attention to details and keep improving, one step at a time.
We choose how high our bar is, and when we raise our bar of excellence, we raise it for those around us. Raising this bar means we must keep pushing from each success to further learning.
Make a change
Taking initiative for our own problems is the first step towards building resilient community and that’s the core of this programme
When faced with a problem, we can either wait for a solution from outside or make our own. This programme is built on the international Quality Circle movement. Students identify, analyse and solve challenges in their surroundings using simple thinking tools. These tools can be used to reduce faulty parts in a factory, or revamp a dirty classroom. Students learn to solve the problems, no matter how big or small.
For this we run a series of workshops with kids, where our volunteers help kids identify a problem they want to solve, understand the problem, brainstorm and test solutions and finally implement the best solution and learn from their experience. To see this in action, see how these students transformed their classroom.
