Pi Labs Programme
The organisation has set up labs that allow students to play around with technology and come up with innovative designs. Essential hardware has been provided along with subject-related resources. Teacher training forms an important part of the programme and it is ensured that after the training appropriate follow-up and advice is given to lead to better learning.
Weather Station Programme
This is a programme which in partnership with schools motivates children to build computerized weather stations for their schools.
