Sattvik Food Festival 2023: A Glimpse into the Soft Launch of Tinkering India

After a considerable hiatus, it was exhilarating to dive back into event management with a vibrant team of volunteers at the Sattvik Food Festival 2023. The return to community engagement is not just about organization; it’s a hub of learning and networking, especially after the long pause necessitated by the global pandemic.

This year, I reached out to Chetan Patel to see if there were areas I could contribute to, and soon found myself leading a dedicated team of student volunteers from various MBA colleges, all geared towards managing the Social Media front.

The first day was about acclimatizing and capturing the essence of the event, but by the second day, the team was fully operational, branching out into different groups. They were inviting food bloggers, artists, and the vibrant folks of Amdavad to partake in the festival’s offerings.

The festival saw an overwhelming footfall of over 60,000 visitors, bringing with it logistical challenges like parking and traffic. But, collaborating with Chetan Patel, Mayursinh Chavda, and Ramesh Patel from SRISTI transformed these challenges into a seamless experience. Their dedication to aiding farmers and managing volunteers was truly inspiring.

Tinkering India’s introduction to the Amdavadis was met with tremendous enthusiasm, marking the beginning of an exciting journey of growth and community engagement.

A highlight for many was the pipe-based assembly game for kids, sparking joy and creativity amongst the younger attendees. The event culminated with all of us – volunteers, influencers, and organizers – celebrating with Garba, our faces beaming with joy after four eventful days.

This experience was not just about managing an event; it was about learning to adapt, tackle unexpected situations, and grow as a team. We’re excited to bring more updates and continue this journey with a new cohort of volunteers for the Sattvik Social Media team. Stay tuned for more stories and lessons from this festive endeavor!


A Visit to Rural Schools near Mandvi, Kutch for Tinkering India’s First Support to CSR Project with Sai’s Angel Foundation

Recently, I embarked on an unforgettable journey, visiting rural schools near Mandvi, Kutch, as part of a collaborative project between Tinkering India and Sai’s Angel Foundation. This experience was nothing short of a revelation, illuminating the profound impact of our efforts to foster innovation and creativity among schoolchildren.

Our initiative revolves around providing these young minds with access to technology and hands-on learning opportunities. This is achieved through the establishment of tinkering labs in these rural schools. Here, students are given the freedom to explore their curiosity and develop essential problem-solving skills. Witnessing their enthusiasm and engagement in activities like building prototypes, conducting experiments, and working on innovative projects was both heartening and inspiring.

A significant aspect of my visit was the opportunity to interact with the dedicated teachers. Their commitment to nurturing the students’ creativity and guiding them in their tinkering projects was evident and truly commendable.

The project’s impact, however, extends beyond the educational realm, positively influencing the local community. By providing access to quality education and fostering a spirit of innovation, it empowers students to become agents of change within their communities. This, in turn, contributes to the holistic development of the region.

Reflecting on my visit, I am reminded of the humbling and enlightening nature of this experience. It underscored the critical importance of equal educational opportunities and the transformative power of innovation. Being a part of this initiative, alongside Sai’s Angel Foundation, and witnessing the positive changes in the lives of these young learners has been an incredibly rewarding experience. This journey is not just a chapter in my blog; it’s a testament to the power of education and innovation in shaping brighter futures.

Empowering the Future: The Significance of Learning by Doing in Education

Introduction

Education has always been the key to unlocking a brighter future. As we step into the digital age, the way we learn and teach is evolving at a rapid pace. In this blog post, we will explore the transformative impact of hands-on learning methods on students’ academic and personal development, and why it is crucial for empowering the future.

The Power of Learning by Doing

Traditionally, education has been focused on theoretical knowledge and memorization. However, in today’s fast-paced world, simply knowing facts and figures is no longer enough. Students need to develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity skills to thrive in the future.

Hands-on learning, also known as experiential learning or learning by doing, provides students with the opportunity to actively engage in the learning process. It allows them to apply theoretical concepts to real-world situations, fostering a deeper understanding and retention of knowledge.

Enhancing Academic Performance

Research has shown that hands-on learning methods have a positive impact on academic performance. When students are actively involved in their education, they are more motivated and invested in their learning. This leads to increased participation, improved comprehension, and better grades.

By engaging in hands-on activities, students develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter. They are able to connect theoretical concepts with practical applications, making learning more meaningful and relevant.

Developing Essential Skills

One of the key advantages of learning by doing is the development of essential skills. In addition to academic knowledge, students acquire critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity skills through hands-on experiences.

In a world where automation and artificial intelligence are becoming increasingly prevalent, creativity and adaptability are more important than ever. By engaging in hands-on activities, students learn to think outside the box, explore different solutions, and adapt to new challenges.

Preparing for the Future

The future is uncertain, and the skills required for success are constantly evolving. By embracing hands-on learning methods, educators are preparing students for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Hands-on learning encourages students to become active learners, taking ownership of their education and exploring their interests. It fosters a growth mindset, equipping students with the resilience and adaptability needed to thrive in an ever-changing world.

Conclusion

As we look to the future, it is clear that hands-on learning has a significant role to play in empowering students. By providing opportunities for students to learn by doing, educators are nurturing their academic performance, developing essential skills, and preparing them for the challenges of tomorrow.

It is crucial that we continue to prioritize hands-on learning in our education systems. By doing so, we can ensure that our students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and mindset needed to succeed in the future.

The Importance of Tinkering in Education

Education is a crucial aspect of a child’s development, and it is essential to provide them with opportunities that foster their curiosity and creativity. One such opportunity is tinkering, which involves hands-on exploration, experimentation, and problem-solving.

Tinkering is a process that allows children to connect with the context of their learning and helps them learn better. It encourages them to think critically, analyze problems, and come up with innovative solutions. Tinkering also promotes a growth mindset, where mistakes are seen as learning opportunities rather than failures.

When children engage in tinkering activities, they are actively involved in the learning process. They get to explore materials, manipulate objects, and test their ideas. This hands-on approach not only makes learning more enjoyable but also enhances their understanding of concepts.

One of the key benefits of tinkering is that it promotes creativity. When children are given the freedom to experiment and explore, they develop their own unique ideas and solutions. This fosters their creativity and nurtures their ability to think outside the box.

Tinkering also helps children develop problem-solving skills. As they encounter challenges and obstacles during the tinkering process, they are motivated to find solutions. This involves critical thinking, perseverance, and the ability to adapt and iterate.

Moreover, tinkering encourages collaboration and teamwork. When children engage in tinkering activities together, they learn how to communicate their ideas, listen to others, and work together towards a common goal. This not only enhances their social skills but also prepares them for real-world situations where collaboration is essential.

Another important aspect of tinkering is that it allows children to make connections between different subjects and concepts. Tinkering is not limited to a specific subject; it can be applied to various fields such as science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM). Through tinkering, children can see how these subjects are interconnected and how they can be applied in real-life situations.

In conclusion, tinkering plays a vital role in education as it connects the context and helps children learn better. It promotes critical thinking, creativity, problem-solving, collaboration, and interdisciplinary learning. By incorporating tinkering into the curriculum, we can provide children with a holistic education that prepares them for the challenges of the future.

My Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle: Understanding the Impact of Sugar on the Body

In my quest for a deeper understanding of the human body and its intricate relationship with the food we consume, I embarked on a journey that would transform the way I viewed nutrition. As an educator, I was acutely aware that the education we receive in schools often fails to illuminate the mysteries of our dietary choices. While basic information about vitamins and nutrients may find its way into the curriculum, it often feels like a mere footnote in the grand narrative of our lives.

With a desire to unravel the complexities of the human diet, I turned to the ever-reliable Google. My search was aimed at finding a captain of knowledge who had delved deep into the world of sugar. I yearned to understand the effects of sugar on our bodies and the optimal amounts required for our well-being.

As I delved into the vast sea of online information, I quickly realized that while there was an abundance of content advising people to curb their sugar intake, very few explored the reasons behind sugar’s addictive nature. It was at this juncture that I decided to scrutinize my own daily habits and sugar consumption.

Growing up in a family that seldom indulged in tea or coffee, my sugar intake had been relatively low. However, my Gujarati heritage meant that I had a penchant for sweetness in my food. This preference for sugary delights added a significant amount of sugar to my diet whenever we had home-cooked meals or attended functions.

Upon entering the workforce, my routine shifted, and I found myself consuming tea and coffee regularly. It didn’t take long before I noticed white patches on my elbows, a recurring issue from my past that seemed to worsen in the winter months. By October 2022, I had made a life-altering decision: I was going to quit sugar and everything derived from it, opting for healthier alternatives like jaggery.

My journey to understanding sugar’s impact on my body and mind was marked by a few enlightening videos that I stumbled upon:

  1. The Scary New Research On Sugar & How They Made You Addicted To It! Jessie Inchauspé РThe Diary Of A CEO
  2. You May Never Eat SUGAR Again after Watching This – Dr. Eric Berg DC
  3. What Sugar ACTUALLY Does to the Body
  4. How To Overcome Sugar Addiction

The results were astounding. Without making radical changes to my lifestyle or diet, I managed to shed 4 kilograms in weight simply by eliminating sugar. This meant bidding farewell to soft drinks and all sugar-laden products.

My transformation didn’t stop at sugar, though. I realized that there was more to my dietary habits that needed attention. I began to consciously limit my consumption of oily and fried foods, as they are not only detrimental to overall health but also contribute to fat accumulation.

As of now, I stand at 80 kilograms, down from 86 in June 2022. It’s worth mentioning that my weight loss was not a result of strenuous efforts but rather a consequence of my commitment to understanding the relationship between food and our bodies. This journey has not only improved my physical health but has also given me a deeper appreciation for the profound impact our dietary choices can have on our overall well-being.

In my ongoing quest for knowledge and self-improvement, I hope to continue exploring the fascinating world of nutrition and sharing my insights with others who are on a similar path to a healthier and more conscious lifestyle.
