Innovative Technology Courses Build Global Competency in India’s Urban Slums

One of Level Up Village’s largest Global Partners is Ekalavya, a network of low-cost schools serving more than 1500 children who live in the slums of Bangalore and Hyderabad, India. Since 2015, approximately 200 Ekalavya students have participated in Level Up Village’s cutting-edge STEAM (STEM + arts) courses including Global Inventors (3D printing) and Global Video Game Designers.

“Fifty percent of the children from the slums will not continue their education after the 10th grade, hence it is important for them to give exposure to the technology which will inspire and motivate them to do well and continue,” said Dr. Jayaram, COO of Ekalavya Schools.
