AMAN CED – the think tank for creativity and innovation has yet another success story to its credit. For the last three years, AMAN CED has successfully conducted kid's entrepreneurship camp. This year, they have reached new heights with a collaboration with STEMERS where technology is also being focused with courses in Robotics and Game Development. Together, they have initiated a summer camp called Technology Entrepreneurship Youth Camp (TEYC). Covering the essential concepts of STEM education in an interactive, hands-on and fun model, this is just the avenue for students seeking a real world practical learning in addition to the textbook learning at school. (STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). The age group for the camp was between 10-17 years which makes up the large majority of the existing student pool. A small group of kids below the age of 10 years is also being catered this time around.
