We want to infuse learning as something that is achievable no matter where you are and with this event, we aim to encourage young learners to embrace learning like never before; through relevant conversations, inspiration and entertainment.”
Combining education and entertainment, the noted panel of educators and industry experts will also address several pertinent issues as that of mental health, empowering children, transforming passion into a career, effective time management, handling peer pressure and developing nutrition consciousness that will immensely benefit both students and parents.
The attendees will also be able to discuss psychological health with Dr Zirak Marker, Senior Psychiatrist & Advisor at Mpower, discuss the importance of music in children’s overall development with Anurag Dixit of Musicology, learn about better nutrition from Rujuta Diwekar, get inspired by real-life parent Tahira Kashyap Khurrana, and talk cricket with Indian team captain Mithali Raj.
