Summer programmes

Activity-based learning

BASE, a Bangalore-based training organisation, has announced three learning programmes this summer – Discover, N Skill and Out2Learn. These programmes have been devised by a team of professionals, including child psychologists and experienced teachers, for students of Class Five, Six and Eight and are not disjoint from academic subjects and complement learning at school. Classes will commence by the first week of April. The aim of the summer programmes is to help students enjoy their summer holidays and to give them exposure to experiential learning, improving their soft skills.


This is an activity-based programme to help students seek the next level of learning in Science and Mathematics. Discover makes learning fun and engages the student through hands-on activities. Additionally, interesting communication tools like video demonstrations and footage of events, audio–visual and multimedia presentations etc. are also used to substantiate the sessions.

N Skill

It is a child-centric initiative, focused on nurturing life skills during the formative years of a student’s life. This programme will enable them to extend their learning from the classroom to real- life situations. The programme comprises activities that are facilitated through different techniques like role-play, mind mapping, brain storming, debate, group discussion, painting, crafts, etc.


This is a programme designed to build confidence, overcome fear, inculcate action orientation, improve personal effectiveness and enhance the overall development of a student. With a focus on soft skills, the camp focuses on creating a powerful learning experience beyond academics for those who enroll.

It strives to create a stimulating environment to bring about positive change where a person is encouraged to play, think and learn. The programme comprises activities such as rappelling, jungle gym, raft building, trekking etc.

“Activity-based method of teaching helps students better understand a subject and this results in effective retention of information and values. The core objective of these programmes is to enable learning without the pressure of performing and promote the joy of true learning. They are  designed to help children discover and restore their treasured potential. This is how non-linear thinking is initiated in a student,” says Vallish Herur Director, BASE.
