 student of the Mavericks Program (2012-2013) for becoming accomplished in just one year directly from his 11th grade as a highly successful Internet Business Entrepreneur.


Learning and Inquiry, Research and Innovation as a Matter of Culture 

Vasudev Shyam and Madhavan Venkatesh are the forerunners at CFRCE, of several young minds striking out brilliant new pathways in diverse fields ranging from Theoretical Physics, Pure Mathematics, Astronomy and Astrophysics, and Aerospace on one hand through Electronics, Computer Science, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence, to Business Entrepreneurship, Economics, and Literature on the other hand. At CFRCE, learning and inquiry are pursued as the most enthralling, exhilirating and ennobling experiences of life and more as a matter of culture than as professional pursuits alone.

Lack of movement and Classroom confinement Retards Brain Development

Source: Huffington Post Education

In the past, based on what they knew about and observed in young children, early childhood teachers designed their programs to meet their students' developmental needs. Play and active learning were considered key tools to accommodate those needs and facilitate the children's education....

...a growing body of research is determining that physical activity activates the brain much more so than doing seatwork. While sitting increases fatigue and reduces concentration, moderate- to vigorous-intensity movement feeds oxygen, water, and glucose to the brain, optimizing its performance. Furthermore, learning by doing creates more neural networks in the brain and throughout the body, making the entire body a tool for learning. Active learning is also more fun and engaging for young children, which means it matters to them and is more likely to encourage lifelong learning.
