We believe that children are all unique in their ways, it does not matter what grades they get, every child, with the right guidance, has the chance to shape the future and find their place in the books of history.
To commemorate the idea of Dr. Kalam, the Centre has started Institute of Future Studies which is the nation's first future learning institute designed to produce the next generation of pioneers - who will walk on Mars and those who will cure the planet and humankind. It covers about 600 government schools and encompasses over 450 libraries spread across 14 states reaching out to over 500,000 underprivileged children who are dedicated to propagating the ideas of science and technology.
As a part of our effort towards getting the best of knowledge from all over the world to Indian youth, we run Dr. Kalam Memorial Lecture where we invite top-notch speakers from different domains to talk about their ideas for the future. This is a live online session that acts as a horizontal ground to discuss and evolve ideas for the future in different fields.
Centre has hosted a series of international webinars including those with Astronaut Sunita Williams, NASA, Dr. Rajiv Kumar (Vice-Chairman NITI Aayog), Nobel Laureate Professor Mohammad Yunus, Dr. Sonam Wangchuk, Wing Commander Rakesh Sharma and many other experts and dignitaries.
