"Avishkaar Box intends to become India’s answer to Lego" - Tarun Bhalla


Avishkaar Box is founded by Tarun Bhalla with an aim to get children's attention back to imagination, creativity and play! In an exclusive interview with CrazyEngineers, Tarun talks about Avishkaar Box, his entrepreneurial journey since his first startup venture - Building Blocks, the team's mission at Avishkaar Box and a lot more.



1. Could you please tell our readers more about Avishkaar Box?



Tarun: Avishkaar Box (www.avishkaarbox.com) is a bundle of monthly theme based educational kits for children. The goal of Avishkaar Box is to make learning meaningful, joyful and addictive.
These kits provide practical exposure to the concepts that children study in school. All the Boxes have been carefully mapped with the respective class curriculum. These Boxes can be purchased as standalone kits or as a year-long subscription where you would get a new box every month. Further, there are two kinds of boxes that AvishkaarBox service offers:

STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics educational kits. We offer these for classes Ist and IInd currently.

INVENTORS: These boxes are very specific to a certain Technology theme. For instance, the current boxes that we offer are Robotics – CodiGO (World’s first physical programming interface that has been patented) and the Robotronics® Series. These are for classes II to X.


2. What is the history of the basic idea? What other ideas were assessed and discarded?



Tarun: For the past 5 years, I have been working closely with schools with the Avishkaar Learning Programs and had been interacting with parents on a regular basis. Based on these interactions and being a father of a five year old daughter himself, Tarun realized that hearing the teachers or even watching them perform a physical demonstration of a concept cannot instill a passion for knowledge in a student as deeply as hands-on experience can! There is a strong need to break away from passive instruction and allow for more play and investigation. Unfortunately, there is nothing in the market that blends learning and creativity together. This gave rise to the idea – why not create kits that can provide incredible learning experiences right at the doorstep of the parents to prepare their children for tomorrow? That was the genesis of the Avishkaar Box.
