why ipsfri?

We are a STEM-Ed based content specialty for rural-based schools. We are educating our students in the vernacular Indian language where we strive to empower and support local youth. Here in IPSFRI and Navonmesh Prasar Kendra, we use innovative tools to teach even the simplest lessons to the students. Our campus has an innovative room with a 3D printer, laser cutters, drill machines, cutting machines, woodcutters, welding machines and all kinds of small tools that would help the students in understanding their lessons in a much more practical way. Also, all these machines are equipped with ‘kill switch technology’ that would ensure the safety of the students. Our center offers different classes which are one of its kinds, namely – तोड फोड जोड tod-phod-jod, कबाड़ से-जुगाड़ kabad-se-jugaad, and ज़ोर का झटका zor-ka-jhatka.


We just don't stop here...

Inquiry-based and application-oriented approaches across all subjects and age groups enable students to learn about and respect a range of ideas, independently and collaboratively with others. It helps them develop new perspectives and take responsibility for their learning. Our teachers make use of flipped classrooms, project-based learning, brainstorming, role play, interactive lab experiments and self, and peer evaluation, to make learning more engaging and effective.
