Evolvingminds is a future-driven education and research organization dedicated to preparing young minds for a dynamic future. We strive to create awareness in young minds about their options to create abright future, both for themselves and for mankind. We prepare these minds –Evolvingminds –to face the challenges of the future.
We use science education as a medium to lay the foundation for rational thinking and creative problem-solving. We teach through ‘The Discovery Process’. At Evolvingminds we guide the thought process of the child rather than forcing predetermined thoughts on them. We teach young minds in the age group of 6 to 15 years through thought-provoking questions, science experiments & projects, science lab, hands-on activities, mathematics and technology for kids..
‘The Mentoring Process’ from Evolvingminds is a futuristic, adaptive and responsive program that is always up-to-date with the most innovative methods of imparting knowledge. These science programs are not a substitute for classroom learning or scientific lab experiments, but a level above.
Evolvingminds as a concept was perceived by Anand and established in 2005 to inspire young minds about the power of human wisdom and to guide them in the discovery of their true potential. It started within him as an urge to discover answers to a lot of questions and helped him establish this as a dream come true for young children. He is keen to help the eager young minds of this generation, achieve their dreams and aspirations through innovative new learning techniques.
Ignited by passion in their favourite field, our strong team of mentors are program developers and subject matter experts across various fields of science, with the zeal to impart vital knowledge to the young mentees at Evolvingminds. They strongly believe in the ‘Evolvingminds Philosophy’ & ‘The Mentoring Process’, which is the core of every Evolvingminds Program.
The Evolvingminds Foundation Journey emphasises on continuous, intuitive & intellectual learning with guidance, beyond any mediocre classroom session. Students at schools or other tuition centres are limited by a prescribed syllabus, a narrow path to get admission at top educational institutions, and lack the mentoring process absolutely necessary during such critical stages of learning and development.

Immerse in Practical
The one critical question that every parent has in their mind is about their child’s future. We have grand plans for what they could become. But, do we ever ask our child on want they dream of becoming? Children are easily swayed by various factors and their interests keep varying every day.
As parents we do get confused about our child’s interests and try our best to accommodate their requests. This however, does get difficult as the children of today grow at a rapid pace thanks to the advent of technology and instant learning on the internet.
Every Program at Evolvingminds has something new to offer and each session is interactive, fun and full of activities that encourage practical learning & discovery. My daughter is now confident and is keen to present her ideas & assignments and enjoys it.
Learning how to think is a valuable life skill. The answer lies in a beautiful process of engaging through hands-on experience, systematic questioning, and freedom to postulate and support to explore. This essential opportunity is offered at Evolvingminds in a co-creative manner.
Learning from a young age in a fun manner is the best for young minds of this era, growing at a tremendous pace. This helps them absorb knowledge better, without feeling pressured. The motivation provided encourages them to learn through trial & error towards discovery and success. Kids from 6 years and above are ideal for our programs. We provide an amazing platform from an early age to learn, gain knowledge and wisdom.
Do you provide support for parents to guide their children?
Our conscious parenting sessions are designed exactly for this purpose. We help parents, understand their children better, nurture, support and motivate them in a positive and effective manner, for a long time to come.
Is this program only for bright kids?
Our programs are the perfect fit for any young mind. The content is delivered in a fun, easy, innovative and thought provoking manner. It makes every mentee think, learn and explore pro-actively and be at par with all as they are motivated every step of the way. Situations where some of our mentees need further clarification are keenly addressed by our mentors. This helps balance the learning environment and brings about a positive state of flux in ideation and discovery.
Do you support children in pursuing their own projects?
Yes. The idea is to help them architect their inspiration. The learning methods have to be tried by the mentees. They come to us with a wonderful idea and we provide a platform for structuring their thoughts in drawing form. We have a worksheet for the mentees to submit their ideas. We also go one step further and buy the materials required for the implementation of the ideas, with the parents’ consent. This saves time for the parents while also providing encouragement to the mentees.
How do you measure a child’s understanding during the program?
Every session has checkpoints and sequential flow of activities in place to ensure that mentees have understood the concepts from the previous sessions. This helps us gauge a Mentee’s potential and progress and we guide them to get on level with the others in the program.
Do you conduct backup sessions if a child misses the class?
Yes we do. Generally, we don’t recommend that the mentees miss any sessions, be it due to preparation for exams or other reasons. Parents are responsible to ensure that their children attend all the sessions. In case of a missed session, we ask the mentees to come early before the next session to attend the backup session.
How do we know what is taught in the class?
We share the ideas and discovery and any interesting aspects of the session with the parents through WhatsApp and by email. We have developed the AID – Activities for Inventors and Discoverers program, which will be shared with the parents to keep them informed of the activities at Evolvingminds.
What is the guarantee that my child will score well after attending your program?
We provide pure knowledge in a way that helps your child understand it better, through innovation and experiments. At no point is our focus on the education system. The knowledge and wisdom gained however should help your child perform better for a foreseeable future. And yes, knowledge and wisdom is eternal and beyond guarantee or an expiration date!
How safe are the experiments conducted?
The safety of our mentees is given top priority. The experiments conducted are very safe. For example, only low voltage batteries are used and the scissors and blades used are not sharp. Chemicals are handled only by the mentors and only non-harmful chemicals are allowed to be used by the mentees.
What if my child doesn’t like the program?
This is a very rare occurrence. We meet the mentee in person and find out what motivates him/her. We might have an additional session if needed to help them get motivated. Sometimes, solving their perceived problems helps rid them of the negative energy and helps them be more involved with and enjoy the program. If, in spite of this, we find that that child is not keen on the learning methods at Evolvingminds, we have a partial refund option. This is only for the participants who join for the first time.
How does this program help a child’s career?
Our program is designed from the ground up to cater to the needs of the technological society. The mode of learning and the skills acquired are at a professional level. The mentees at Evolvingminds acquire the skills necessary to adapt to changes in the world of science and technology. We work with the interests of the mentees and have in place a process that provides them with feedback. Hence, any decision they take is based, not on fantasy but awareness.
Is your syllabus aligned with the school syllabus?
No, the syllabus at Evolvingminds is not directly aligned with the syllabus of any particular school. However, the overall foundation journey will address the general syllabus. We have developed concepts that are sometimes higher than the conventional syllabus. We have also taken into account the graduate level learning at school level. We have developed a flow of methods to teach any concept.
At Evolvingminds we have an informal learning environment with open lines of communication between the mentors and mentees, and within the peer group. The sessions are highly interactive, where each mentee is given the freedom to express their ideas relevant to the topics being discussed. They are also encouraged to execute their ideas whenever possible, and to design their own experiments and projects. Our mentees benefit from the group discussions they participate in, and revel in the appreciation that they receive from their peers. This brings out their creativity and makes the learning process a lot more enjoyable.
