- How best to lead by example so that we can tell our children to “do what I do” and not “do what I say”.
- How children can learn to be responsible for themselves and learn self-control; Dr. Sheela shared that self control is a bigger predictor of success than academics.
- The need to both set and enforce consistent boundaries, especially around screens.
- The teenage brain and the functions that it has not yet mastered.
Primary School students enjoyed Inventuring Week tremendously. They participated in all the activities such as aeromodelling, pottery, quilling, waste management, etc with great enthusiasm and creativity. Here are a few videos you can watch, to get a sense of what Inventuring week is all about.

Chain Reaction- Can students who understand a topic teach other students who may not have understood and maybe reticent to ask an adult?
Our Lakes Our Voice- This will be the city and the ecology that we will inherit. Lakes are a vital resource for our city. They are dying. Can we save one?
Our Future Our Voice- We may care about issues that decision makers taking decisions regarding our future may not be considering. How might we get our voice heard by them?
Our Traffic Our Voice- Being hungry, sleepy, or wanting to go the bathroom while being on a one-hour school bus ride is not fun. Especially everyday! What can we do to decongest our roads?
Involve- Beyond the bubble of our privilege are children just like us. Can we form connections and do something for them concretely?

Tree RelocationSensitivity and respect towards the environment are given utmost importance at Inventure. Three trees were translocated to #InventureAcademy in a unique initiative termed as the country's first crowd funded tree translocation. The trees which would otherwise have been chopped down due to a road widening project, are thriving in their new, loving and nurturing environment. Staying true to our core values of being socially responsible, we have demonstrated how technology can be used to bring about positive change and promote sustainable development and living. Click here to know more about the Tree relocation initiative. These, and many more such initiatives, are essential to the teaching-learning process at Inventure Academy, and are activities that go beyond academics of a traditional kind, that make children well rounded and aspire towards purpose and achievement. We work to ensure that these values and the spirit of Inventure, stay with our students through their lives, manifesting in their every action, adding confidence and enabling them to achieve, and lead, with wisdom, foresight and caring.

I chose Berkeley as it has one of the best physics programs in the world, and because of its unique and multicultural atmosphere. 3. How has Inventure helped you achieve your goals thus far? Doing A-Levels at Inventure helped me place out of at least a semester's worth of introductory courses. Also, Inventure's flexibility in allowing me to pursue advanced mathematics, MUN, and student council has prepared me both for coursework and equipped me with crucial people skills. 4. Why would you recommend Inventure to a friend/anyone you know? Because Inventure takes risks, and it thinks outside of the box - which is how you need to be as an individual at places like Berkeley, as opportunities are not given to you on a platter unlike in some other schools - you need to seize them, be creative about them. What I mean by taking risks is that Inventure approaches education unlike other Indian high schools - we are not afraid to try out new things. Take, for example, Maker Space or the Writing Workshop - these are interesting additions to Inventure as they focus on enriching our students' intellectual stimulation, rather than in other schools that focus merely on programs that 'look good'. In my particular case, Further Math was definitely taking a risk that paid off in the long run for me. 5. What were your major accomplishments at school? Well I loved all the community outreach work that I did at Inventure. I also loved being a part of the MUN team and in student council - really helped me become the person I am today. 6. How have you built/used what you learnt at Inventure… how has the Inventure experience helped you in college/life? Inventure's a school that gives you many avenues and opportunities. Unlike some other high schools, where academics is the only thing you do, at Inventure you are encouraged to be a part of a POD, work with your houses, and be a part of schools productions over and above your primary interests (which could be academics or sports or a combination of both). This is useful in Berkeley, as I've noticed that people have to juggle many roles in order to be truly successul in college. You are encouraged to be a part of many extracurricular clubs to build your skill sets and your network, to reach out to your professors and do research... And to simply be involved with the rest of campus. In order to be successful at college, you need to be more than someone who simply focuses on academics, which is what Inventure's philosophy perfectly reflects.
