1. We strengthen the basic fundamentals of a kid…
Our focus is solely on fundamentals. We don’t tell the definitions of various terms…we make the kids understand each word of that definition, we make the kids understand why that definition exists in the first place and more importantly the journey of science in reaching that definition. In short we make a kid ‘live’ the whole definition.
We also know the fact that every other school, tuition class, science kit producing company, etc. claims that they help kids develop strong fundamentals. Well we don’t know how do they define the word ‘fundamentals’ but we have defined for ourselves what does it mean to us. When you read the statement on our site “We strengthen basic fundamentals”, you know exactly what we mean.

2. We work hard to preserve the curiosity of kids…in fact we work hard to increase it…
“I think, at a child’s birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift would be curiosity.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
We don’t think any question is stupid. Our journey of learning with a kid starts with a question and ends with a question. Concepts are introduced to a kid based on the questions springing in her curious mind and answers are given in such a fashion that the kid appreciates the element of “approximation” or “theory” existing in every answer. It is because we focus so hard in engaging with the questions of a kid, they tend to ask more and more questions as they spend more and more time with us – and we love hearing those fundamental questions which more often than not stumps us and makes us say “Sorry I don’t know the answer but I will find out and get back” OR “Sorry Science still doesn’t know the answer. You be the one to find this answer and get your Nobel Prize”. We cherish curiosity and work hard to increase it.
3. We prepare a kid for “Long Term Success” in life
“He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand, and walk, and run, and climb and dance. One cannot fly into flying.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche
A person desirous of becoming let say a 100 mt sprint champion doesn’t get out of the bed every day and runs 100 mt again and again. She goes to gym and exercises her muscles, she works with a nutritionist and follows a specific diet plan to strengthen her body, she works with a specialist trainer and masters the art of takeoff from the block and body alignment while running, and so on. In short she doesn’t run every day with the intent of getting medals in small local meets. She works hard to prepare herself well and then competes to win in big events. This is how life also works. You will find lots of ninety per-centers who don’t clear any meaningful entrance exams…forget about clearing exams, they can’t even explain the basic concepts properly…you find lots of first rankers in schools who are nowhere seen…you can read biographies of lots of achievers and figure out for yourself that they had no stellar academic record in their initial years. Why? It is because when others were focusing on short term success they were focusing on getting themselves ready for the long term success.
In a similar way we work on a kid in such a fashion that they are ready to handle the “real” exams of life with confidence. Like a focused athlete we don’t focus on short term success – we believe in laying the foundation for a long term success.
Qki always says, “Strong fundamentals always leads to a heightened curiosity which in turn goes to strengthen the fundamentals. Once this self-sustaining loop sets in a kid, long term success is not far off.”
