InvHack2020 – Inventure’s first Hackat...

In the words of our school captain Sahil Kuchlous: “InvHack 2020 saw over 40 students from schools all over Bangalore and Ooty participating in the event. It was great to see our work come together in such an amazing way. It was also incredible to see the spirit of collaboration throughout the event - teams were always open to helping each other out. Students from grades 9-12 were creating innovative solutions to various problems throughout the 24-hour span. The winning team from Inventure, 405 Found made an app which identified and provided information on plants and animals in nature just by taking a picture. This idea was very novel, and more importantly, had a lot of potential impact on education for low-income students. And this was just one of the amazing ideas that the teams came up with. The other winners were 2nd place: aMAISing kids from Mallya Aditi, where the 3rd place was a tie between Etwas from Oakridge High School and Commucodaz from Greenwood High. We, the organizing team, also learnt a lot from this experience. We helped students throughout the night with their problems and guided and mentored them in different aspects. We also learned how to organize events on this scale, and how to handle the various aspects that go into such events, such as logistics and publicity. Our biggest takeaway from this event was the power that the youth have in today's day and age. We are a generation that is willing to put our skills to use, tackling the most urgent issues the world has to offer. To us, InvHack 2020 was clear evidence of that. We hope that the teams who came to the event take their ideas forward, and plan to continue organizing events like these in the future.”

As defined, Teaching is the process of tending to people’s needs, choosing to intervene so that they learn new things, so that one is driven to yearn for success, and go beyond the given. And like the oaks of a forest, they stand straight against the breeze to help these fragile saplings bloom into the canopy. But these seedlings too are mighty, and will soon also toil for the next generation of those beneath the soil. And as we grow into the ground, as our leaves greet shades of green we may also provide support for another to try and lean upon the sturdy frame that we have built to hold strong upon loose sand and silt. Regardless of person, purpose or plight, each one can extend their arms to add verdant might to the umbrella of emerald that forms a safe space for new growth out of the ignorant wastes. So if each one of us can help, then we all may be teachers of our own, part of these tall great trees that hold the shade of shelter for all those beneath and truly attend to all we see.

Art Exhibition

The field trip was really an eye-opener for me. The curator was really engaging and was really interesting to talk to and hear from. He spoke about how he selected the works for the exhibit and about sales of artwork and valuation. Those topics really interested me, as I was not very well informed in the business aspect of art. The exhibit itself was very interesting. We spent a lot of time on the first floor, where the sculptures and the more abstract art was present. I learned a lot about abstract expressionism and developed even more respect for the style and artists. The third floor, with the more traditional pieces, was jaw-dropping. Although there was more traditional art, the concepts and the art itself seemed abstract to me. For example, this piece by Ashu Gupta which really amazed me – While traditional, the concept itself seems abstract. I realised the importance of a concept. A meaningful concept makes the artwork even more appealing and rich. All in all, the most important thing I learnt in this field trip is that art has to have a subtle, honest meaning. If that's absent, no matter how technically perfect the artist is, the art will never be historical or world changing. That's what separates good art from great art. By Anjali Mallmpooty (10 ICSE)

Middle School Celebration of Learning

Three months of hard work, collaboration, exploration and perseverance, culminated on 31 August when Middle Schoolers presented their projects to their parents and teachers at the Celebration of Learning. The students showcased around 50 projects centred around ‘interconnectedness’, the theme for this year’s CoL. They were ably guided by 12 mentors. The event reflected student learning on not just a variety of subjects which they researched on, but also helped them learn how to design and develop their projects. They also learnt important life skills such as working as a team, dealing with failure, planning for success, delegation and collaboration. Grade 7 Inventurer Adhir V Balaji while speaking about his experience said, “We learn that failure is the key to success. We had to research again and again and do the same thing again and again, to finally get the solution.” “Education is a way of equipping people to answer the questions we already have. None of these questions come packaged into Maths, Science and English. It’s a combination of all these things. Using these tools to understand these questions and answer them better is a very necessary step,” said Prasanth Sistla, an Inventure faculty member. Watch the video Celebration of Learning
