The WORKSHOP is an initiative designed to give teenagers a platform to create technological solutions to common global challenges of developing nations.
The WORKSHOP intends to achieve this feat by developing regular teens and transforming them into tech geniuses and then giving them the tools and materials to manifest their new state of minds.
The WORKSHOP creates the atmosphere and the reality of super-inventors and innovators for the teens, thereby exciting even the most uncreative teens to want to flex their abilities and minds in solving real-time challenges as it faces society and the world at large.
The WORKSHOP believes every child can be a genius, or every child is born a genius yet trapped in embodiment of innocence and mental limitations according to their sense of taking responsibilities or level of self esteem as well as other physiological or mental parameters. Therefore the ultimate goal is to birth that genius capacity of the average teenager and unleash it as an overwhelming force to attack and address global challenges in all spheres
In this capacity The WORKSHOP also runs with motivational sessions that open up a whole lot of dimensions to the issues of life and the complex and yet simple methods to stay in control…
The WORKSHOP believes that the minds that would change the world are still quite young and our goal is to get them ready.
- To raise the next generation of innovators that will take on global challenges in all spheres
- To create the curiosity mindset among younger ones for having a burning desire to solve problems and create solutions for simple to the most complex problems they come across in their everyday lives
- To teach teens how to defy impossibilities and how to explore the depths of their minds and creativity

As the name represents this lab is packed with 21st century state of the art facilities that will stun even MIT Researchers. Some of these facilities are Artificial Intelligence training robotics app, Retina scanning entry doors, Oculus virtual Reality headsets, 20 Inch smart PCs, Green Solar Power Supply Systems, a Web TV station and many more.
The lab can take as much as a 100 students who will research and develop World-Class Initiatives according to original structures and modus operandi of The WORKSHOP.
