Break It Down

Break It Down

Respire Experiential Learning organized a two day BuildTech workshop for children 5-15 years old at Edify Kids, Ahmedabad. The vision behind “Break It Down” workshop was to introduce Disruptive learning to children.  Children always have curiosity to know the working of appliances around them.  This inspired us to follow the idea of  “Break – Learn – Make”. 

Here is the peek a boo of our activities and it’s takeaways during workshop
