SUBSCRIPTION PLAN

 


 

Being largely learner-driven, the Innovator Program works on a subscription model. Students have complete autonomy over the number of hours they spend at the makerspace as part of the program. They are welcome to choose slots (hours) according to their convenience. We recommend a minimum of 2 hours per visit because that is an optimal time frame for the learner to delve into a topic.
