First in Math
The unique structure of the Creya Project Based Curriculum has Projects ( Guided activities) then moves on to a Challenge ( Slightly Open Ended Activity where learners can borrow from their learning of Projects) and finally moving to Capstone (a totally open ended problem in a new context to see if learners can transfer learning and reapply).
The challenges and capstone projects that are real world connected also help to apply classroom theory to real-world problem solving and aligned to the UN SDG.
There is a very strong lesson plan and resources available for the teachers to deliver the program with help from Training and Year-round Implementation Support. There is a systemic place for online storage of all the project related learning experiences on our Online Digital Portifolio System.
City as Lab
- How does the crude oil prices affect the budget of a middle class family?
- What effect of onscreen mobile time on the youths of age 12-18 years in our school?
- How much post examination waste is produced every year in I C Colony?
- Violent games are becoming a danger!!
The JBCN Interact Club (affiliated to the Rotaract Club) aims at making the connection between school and the community through community service. The club has conducted various community service activities.
The Mathlete club is a fun way for learners to develop intuitive thinking skills and apply them. Club members have opportunities to apply and improve math skills by participating in learning circles. Club members not only learn new concepts but also make use of their previous knowledge during the club activities. With the ardent desire to make mathematics more interesting and significant in a learner’s life, the club also introduces and develops activities that help the learners see the relationship of Mathematics to the real world. It involves all learners in activities such as games, puzzles, discussion, videos, experiments etc. Through fun activities and peer collaboration they reach beyond the math curriculum and gain mathematical insight.
The Biz club has been formed to enhance a learner’s knowledge of entrepreneurial competencies. Since entrepreneurship is a practical subject, learners run a mini business called projects whereby learners learn entrepreneurial competencies practically. These projects are managed by small teams of learners thereby fostering collaboration between learners and their peers and creation of innovative products. The club has also fundraised during Progress review meeting days and holds charitable sales.
Maker’s space club is helping to prepare those who need critical 21st-century skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). They provide hands-on learning, help with critical thinking skills and even boost self-confidence. We have worked with learners on their thinking ability on various day to day life activities. How they will solve issues using science and technology. Learners were given a platform like innovators convention, APJ Abdul Kalam competition and various other. We have also triggered the thinking process of learner’s in concepts like aerodynamics, density, surface area through various activities.
EUMIND, Europe Meets India, is a virtual exchange program in which European and Indian learners work together on real-life issues such as sustainability, human rights and arts and culture. The learners from the EUMIND Club of our school and schools in Netherlands are working on the same topics. They share their learnings with each other through various online supervised platforms like Skype, video conferencing and Whatsapp chats. This helps the learners enhance their knowledge, widen their perspective, become tolerant and adaptive towards other cultures and values and in turn develop a global perspective.
STEM CLUB (A-levels)
STEM is a club dedicated to lovers of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Learners are trained to look at problems, find solutions, fail, try again and emerge as innovators in their respective chosen fields.
The Art Café was formed for learners to hone their artistic passion. The vision of the club is for learners to learn new art & design skills and techniques along with enhancing their art & craft skills thereby increasing their confidence to try out newer techniques, foster collaboration with peers and be involved in creating quality art work.
The Green club encourages Learners to participate and take up meaningful environmental activities and projects like Recycle action programme which we introduced this year. It is a forum through which learners can reach out to influence, engage and encourage their friends, families and neighborhood communities to promote sound environmental behavior. It will empower learners to explore environmental concepts and actions beyond the confines of a syllabus or curriculum. While everyone, everywhere, asserts the importance of ‘learning to live sustainably,’ environment remains a peripheral issue in the formal schooling system. The Green club is trying to display the crucial need to REDUCE, RE– USE RECYCLE through activities, videos and visitors.
Learners of any age need the freedom to express themselves in a manner that is respectful, thoughtful and accepted. The Journalism club gives them the platform to do so. By creating their own materials, based on life around school, learners are able to create something that is uniquely theirs, something they can take pride in. Some of the objectives include to ensure that information is useful and is disseminated to the members effectively and encourage learners to know and utilize their talents and skills such as writing, editing, photography, design and layout through the newsletter JBCN Times (powered by Scribido) showcasing inspirational stories in and around the school.
It’s important now more than ever to prepare learners for the future. Learning robotics at a young age helps learners to build their ability to be creative, problem solver and thinkers. When learners program physical robots, it’s easier for them to see what goes wrong as they learn what robots can and cannot do. They learn the skills needed to create precise and accurate instructions and have fun while learning valuable lessons.The activities undertaken in the club are:
- Moving the robot in a straight line.
- Moving the robot in a square and diagonal.
- Stopping the robot when a “Black” line on the floor is detected.
- Detecting green line on the floor and moving ahead.
- Detecting obstruction to decrease and stopping the robot
- Moving the robot along the wall
- Traffic signal replica
- Tilted surface and the friction at which objects can move
TED-ED CLUB (A-levels)
The TED-Ed club focuses on training learners to share their ideas and hone their public speaking talents. It has a rigorous and exhilarating training programme that is sure to work wonders for hesitant speakers.
PSYCHOLOGY CLUB (A-levels)
The A-levels Psychology club was introduced and renamed as the ‘Psycher Club’. This club encourages learners to delve into the realm of feeling rather than the realm of reasoning. They practice various therapeutic practices to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The learners are furthermore encouraged to carry out various psychological researches.
ENTREPRENEURSHIP CLUB (A-levels)
Our learners who are looking into a career involving business, finance and entrepreneurship are happy to be a part of this very dynamic club. Members are expected to come up with a business idea, write a business plan and eventually establish a successful business in this club. The club was initiated with a three dimensional focus – Implementing ideas, Working hard and Creating a positive social impact. To fulfil these objectives, the members of the club came up with two brilliant ideas and gave them the name and shape of a business – Twice Told Tales (A business selling used books) and Freshtacular (A business selling healthy snacks)
