Sri Aurobindo Group of Institutes has joined with Finnish partners Kide Science and New Nordic School to bring world-renowned teaching practices to Indore when Nordic High International School (NHIS) opens their doors in June 2021.
India has introduced a new nationwide education policy, NEP2020, with a slew of reforms. Finland’s education provider, New Nordic School, has an innovative educational system and training to support India’s new policy. Their system empowers students to explore their natural creativity and discover their true passions through future-ready teaching and learning. Kide Science is perfectly aligned with these aims, and offers the STEAM education modules for ECE teachers in Nordic High International School in India.
New Nordic School offers a competency-based, CBSE-aligned Nordic Baccalaureate curriculum that, together with international pedagogy and technology, teach students in India how to learn instead of what to learn.
“This is precisely the core for Kide Science as well, and that is why we are happy to offer this high quality and research based STEAM solution from Finland to our partner schools in India”, says Suzanne Perkowsky, New Nordic School.
In NHIS, learning is made relevant and brought alive by connecting subject knowledge with real-life phenomena and future skills. “That is why we are super happy to start cooperation with them, as our approaches are perfectly aligned”, says Sari Hurme-Mehtälä, Kide Science CEO.
Chani Trivedi from NHIS says, “We intend to create an ecosystem where we let the children explore according to their capabilities, interests and imaginations. We are excited to offer Kide Science lessons to our youngest students which will help them build a strong foundation for the future skills. We want to create a positive difference in the way education is offered and by this association with Kide Science we are taking that step.”
