Why Join The ThinkTAC Programme?

ThinkTac Programmes are a fun and engaging way to learn Science. The hands-on experiential learning programme, uses a problem solving approach to deliver sustained learning outcomes while improving cognitive skills.

ThinkTac programmes consist of a series of tactile activities termed as TACtivities™ that are aligned with the curriculum of a child.  TACtivities include making toys and experiments – both short and running up to a few weeks. These are supplemented with thought experiments, tactile enquiry and computer/ app-based games.

The ThinkTac Science programme currently covers Fifth to Eighth Standards for CBSE, ICSE and a few State Boards. The programme is designed to cover over 80% of all topics in the science curriculum with TACtivities and for the remaining, we have carefully curated resources.

The TACtivities are developed after extensive research, with experiential learning pedagogy. The learner is provided chests of materials for upto 40 TACtivities during an academic year. Cognitive Life Skills are integrated into various activities, making it also an experiential process.

The programme is designed to be interactive with an Educator responsible for each cohort. The Child uploads a photo / video after each TACtivity which is reviewed by the Educator, keeping track of the progress of every child. The Educator assesses the current capabilities of the learner and provides just enough support and additional assignments to enable the learner to take the next step, building confidence and capability at each step.
