“There's a way to do it better - find it.”― Thomas A. Edison

What if the heart of every STE(A)M lesson is an empathy based real-world story? How might we give students the experience to empathize with different users, explore science and technology, engineer creative solutions and solve their users’ problems?

“At Marshmallow Minds, we believe that all children have the potential to become the heroes of their story when they connect with the world from their heart through empathy and apply their mind creatively, to solve challenges.” - Harini Senthilvasan, Founder @ Marshmallow Minds

Watch our little heroes in action!
