The focus of the Creya STEAM Lab and Design Studio is to deliver 21st Century Skills. Learners get to work on different manipulative sets across the year right from Bricks / Engineering Design / Robotics / Internet of Things (IoT) / Coding / Digital Media.

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

City as a Lab (CaL) is working on the belief that there is a researcher in every child! It is an annual, city-based research project undertaken by school children for 3-4 months, which culminates in a one-day conference event. City as Lab is the flagship program of Reniscience Education. Our Grade VIII learners have taken up this programme. They are divided into groups of 4-5 learners. The purpose of CaL is to engage children in authentic inquiry and research using their city as a laboratory. Learners observe their surroundings, come up with a research question, formulate a hypothesis, engage in research, analyze and interpret findings, extrapolate their results and come up with conclusions. They then present their entire project in a concisely written research paper. CaL gives learners an opportunity to discover their ability to reason, to think critically, to work collaboratively, but most importantly, to understand their city as participatory citizens. Some of the research questions formulated by our learners are:
  • 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!!

Big History resists specialization, and searches for universal patterns or trends.

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.

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.

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.
