What do we do?


We design learning experiences...


We are teachers, engineers, designers, artists, scientists...


Turning classrooms...


...into labs for discovery


We want our students to gain one key insight...

The world is malleable

The world is malleable
And they can reshape it

The world is malleable
And they can reshape it
Provided they gain the right skills

But what are the right skills?

We think there are 3 important skills

Let's talk about STEAM

Good grades used to be the ticket to success...

...but the 21st Century demands innovation

Innovation is rearranging and connecting dots across disciplines...


...for example

Medical device engineers are more effective when they know design

Anthropology and Advertising combine to reveal rich insights

That is why we don't teach
Just Science

Just Computing

That is why we don't teach

Just Art

That is why we don't teach
Just Science
Just Computing
Just Art
Just Mathematics

Instead we encourage interdisciplinary thinking

We create challenges that run on STEAM

Here's one challenge we give our students:

                                Build a musical instrument

That takes STEAM

Science - vibration, resonance, amplitude, frequency

Science - vibration, resonance, amplitude, frequency

Technology - frequency measuring apps, cutting tools

Science - vibration, resonance, amplitude, frequency

Technology - frequency measuring apps, cutting tools

Engineering - choose the right material, precision in cutting

Science - vibration, resonance, amplitude, frequency

Technology - frequency measuring apps, cutting tools

Engineering - choose the right material, precision in cutting

Arts - music theory, notes, performance

Mathematics - calculate frequency-wavelength relations

Let's talk about Making


Knowledge is power only when you know how to use it


A simple saw turns the abstraction of geometry into a usable box.

But how do you assess if somebody is learning how to use knowledge?


We don't have exams. We don't issue grades.


We assess our students through the projects they make.

How do you prepare students for jobs that don't yet exist?

How do you prepare students for jobs that don't yet exist?

How do you prepare students for jobs that don't yet exist?
                                             to use technology that does not yet exist?

How do you prepare students for jobs that don't yet exist?
                                             to use technology that does not yet exist?
                                             for a future that does not yet exist?

We give them the skills to invent the future

...and that means training them in

which includes

Let's talk about Communication

No matter how the world changes

The ability to persuade and inform will be valuable

Our classes put a strong emphasis on communicating

in person with paper-props

Our classes put a strong emphasis on communicating

with new media tools like digital design

Parents talk about their children's communication skill development at Karkhana

Let's talk about Collaboration

No matter how the world changes

The ability to deliberate and find common purpose will be valuable

Our classes put a strong emphasis on collaborating

while in the same room as your team

Our classes put a strong emphasis on collaborating

using internet based tools

Let's talk about Creativity

No matter how the world changes

The ability to find new ways forward will be valuable

Our classes teach TMPI,

Our classes teach TMPI,

a thinking process that lets you create something from nothing

Let's talk about Critical Thinking

No matter how the world changes

The ability to examine a problem analytically and logically will be valuable

Our classes challenge students

to dissect a problem from multiple perspectives
