In 2014, Respire Experiential Learning (REL) was started with the aim of transforming the approach of foundation-level education into a more hands-on education for children. The quest of making STEM education a hands-on learning involved relentless research both on-ground and off-ground. This experience and understanding translated itself into the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) kits, now adopted by an array of organizations and schools nationwide.
Based in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, the team has reached out to more than 50,000 students from a variety of backgrounds with schools across different education boards. In addition, REL also runs after-school programme centres in Gujarat, Maharashtra and other states.
