Meu Labs launches operations
Meu Labs has made a significant contribution to the development of next-generation problem solvers and creative thinkers by introducing Project-based Learning concepts as an adjunct to Sri Lanka’s existing education system. Meu Labs is an open ecosystem where Grades and Traditional Classes Don’t Exist, and the focus is on embracing learning through enjoyment.
The inspiration for Meu Labs comes from a curriculum built for tomorrow, from global education revolutionaries such as Elon Musk. Musk’s school called Ad Astra, has no language, music, or sports lessons, and instead encourages students to work on complex projects, such as building battling robots, discussing nuclear politics, and planning how to defeat evil! This is music to any intellectually curious young mind and definitely better than digital screens.
An overarching theme is enjoyment and engagement. Students are rarely seen reading textbooks or memorising facts and figures while the majority of conversations are carried out among students themselves. There are no examinations and no grades, students are only given feedback by the instructors who serve as guides or facilitators. This enables students to quickly learn to evaluate their efforts based on their contribution and the end result.
Each Meu Labs session is designed and developed with a specific educational goal in mind. It is assured that while the child is having fun in an engaging and stimulating environment, he or she will take home tangible skills geared for development and future while bridging the education real world disconnect.
