To succeed in the new information-based and technology-driven world, students need to develop their capabilities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) from an early age. The product segment of STEM, CTILab & Robotics provide an environment to students where they can learn by experimenting, discovering, thinking and collaborating.
STEM education emphasizes on a concept-driven approach that strengthens analytical knowledge, problem-solving abilities and helps students pursue excellence in different fields in these subjects. All along it was a belief that mathematics is a complex web of numbers and science, a maze of complicated theories! But, not any longer! smartstem™ brings a whole new perspective to these much dreaded subjects by integrating them into the curriculum through a cohesive learning approach based on the principles of STEM education.
smartstem™ empowers teachers and students with the right set of skills and technology, so they can teach and learn these subjects with eagerness, ease and enthusiasm. Powered by high quality videos and 2D and 3D simulations, smartstem™ deconstructs complex topics into easy-to-understand concepts. It ensures higher retention levels by using experiential learning simulations, vivid imagery and glossaries.
smartstem™ is not just easy to use but also convenient to deploy. Independently loaded on a hard disk, it can easily be connected and integrated with your existing hardware, making it cost effective. The supporting hardware, if needed, can be provided by us.
The smartCTILab Curriculum is a futuristic Curriculum designed to bring innovation, creativity, and problem-solving skills into computer labs and classrooms by engaging and involving the student at every step. The curriculum familiarizes students to the 21st century technologies such as the fundamentals of Computer Science, Robotics, Creativity, Problem-solving skills and their place in the modern world and is based on Computational Thinking (CT) skills. CT is a problem solving process that is essential to the development of computer applications, but it can also be used to support problem solving across all disciplines, including Math, Science, and the Humanities. Our effort is to develop the inquisitive and tinkering streak in students so that they are not afraid to learn by experimenting and learning from failures.

It has always been my dream to see technology becoming an integral part of a teacher's life inside the classrooms. The smartclass program implemented in our schools has indeed been like a dream come true.
The modules are both informative and enjoyable and it has enhanced the teaching and learning process.
The teaching methodology has transformed from an orthodox, laborious method of verbal explanation to a very interactive and graphical presentation, making teaching more interesting to the teachers and learning easy and enjoyable for the students.
The smartclass program has made the classroom sessions very interesting and interactive. It is helpful for both, the teacher and students in the learning process.
