“Every building is like a person. Single and unrepeatable.” – Ayn Rand, ‘The Fountainhead’
…and every learner is like a building growing steadily from a carefully crafted base. The foundation has always mattered and here at the Maverick Learning Centre [MLC] we try to look at learning from an unconventional standpoint where children ‘learn how to learn’.
In an increasingly technological age where everything is just a click away, cramming ourselves with facts is pointless. The Maverick Learning Centre (introduced in 2019) is a Self-Directed project-based learning centre which aims at providing a stimulating, encouraging and safe environment for children, where they develop 21 st century skills and dare to dream and realise their passion while becoming experts at what they like.
We plan on making this space a living archive of various activities that students undertake and let you witness what these young mavericks are capable of achieving. Students engage in all sorts of activities ranging from cooking to coding to doodling to designing various models and what not! We believe that learning should be a pleasurable experience and not stay limited within the narrow walls of a fixed curriculum. Since times immemorial we ‘adults’ have duped ourselves into thinking that ‘children’ are guinea pigs with whom we can experiment as long as we want. We need to realise that they are much more than that and all we need to do is facilitate, direct and support them when they need us. Apart from that, you’ll also have a chance to have a sneak peek into what MLC is all about and decide for yourselves what kind of a future awaits these budding innovators.
