The Innovation Story (TIS) is an organization whose mission is to empower students (ages 11-17) with real-world technical skills, transforming them into change-makers and innovators. This is done through expert-curated, cohort-based, hands-on programs in computer science and robotics.
Amazon Future Engineer is a comprehensive childhood-to-career program aimed at increasing access to computer science education for children and young adults from underserved and underrepresented communities.
AFE is partnering with The Innovation Story to help underprivileged children from Mumbai unleash their potential by enabling them to build a portfolio of tangible innovations and also equipping them with life skills that will serve them in the future.
Knowledge of Computer Science (CS) is fundamental to students future careers. Computing and Technology hold the promise of solving problems big and small by shaping the world around us. Inclusion, then, becomes more critical than ever before.
TIS aims at bridging the digital literacy gap by helping students from underserved communities develop a strong foundation in information technology tools, and giving them exposure to various fields of Computer Science, from Website Design to Robotics. In the process, we equip them with cognitive and problem-solving skills needed to solve real-world challenges and build a foundation for their future success.
Curriculum designed for everyone
Hands-on learning via instructor-led, small cohort-based online programs
Focus on logic building and inculcating a problem-solving mindset
Continuous student engagement through assignments, quizzes, and capstone projects
Reinforcement of concepts by way of capstone projects which provide avenues for the application of all that the students learn in the program
Active feedback loop for students and instructors
Our courses are structured to give students hands-on experience with
Technology, Block-based Coding, and Computational Thinking.
Digital skills are critical in today’s tech-centric environment. They help you connect and communicate, learn and engage with your community. This course focuses on how to use a computer, the internet, how to protect your digital identity and your devices, and how to navigate Microsoft Office suite including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
This course aims to help students understand programming concepts and how they can be used to make computers perform various tasks. In the process, students develop important computational thinking skills which help in problem-solving across many disciplines.
In this course, students are introduced to creative computing using Scratch. They create interactive storybooks, animations, games, and unplugged activities built to introduce the concepts of Algorithm, Sequencing, Conditions, Looping, and Parallelism.
With an exponentially growing community around data science, machine learning, AI, web development, and more, Python is a programming language that has revolutionized the way we write code.
Students are introduced to core programming concepts like Data types, Conditionals, Loops, Variables, and Functions. This course includes an overview of the various tools available for writing and running Python, and gets students coding quickly. It also provides hands-on Coding exercises using commonly used custom functions, and reading and writing to console.
The course delves deeper into how to apply Algorithmic thinking to solve problems and developing modular code. The students learn to write efficient code with appropriate data structures to store data.
This 3D-Modelling course teaches the students to develop products and machines in a virtual platform using computer-aided design and Fusion 360 software. The 3D-models are set by using dimensions and by constraining them to the specified position. Through this course, the students can extend their perspective to
The course covers all the Engineering needs in one single roof, which can integrate the complete system, from raw material to finished product.
This is a hands-on course covering all major domains of Robotics; the ultimate goal is to build a fully functional, well-programmed Robot. The course builds off of knowledge from previous programming and CAD courses, while introducing more advanced topics in these streams. Students also learn a completely new vertical: electricals. Concepts covered include optimised design, control systems, algorithms, and more. Completing the course promises to augment classroom learning by way of seeing academic theories put to practice in the real world. The course focuses on teaching the way of thinking and problem-solving that goes into creating Robots - from brainstorming, prototyping, to product stage so that students design Robots based on the problem statement on their own.
