Aarush Rajani

Student, Delhi Private School Sharjah

Aarush Rajani is a 13-year-old curious explorer, a creative mind, a tech savvy student and an innovator from Dubai. As a child, he is quite focused and passionate. Once he engages in something, he pursues it with his heart and all his energies till he realizes the end objective. Since early days of his childhood, he’s been attracted towards technology and digital like a magnet. His parents tell him that when they gifted him his first battery operated car, his first reaction was to turn it upside down and try to open it to check what’s inside and how it works! While he is studious and does quite well in academics, he believes that all work and no play make’s Jack a dull boy. For him the fun element comes from his love of technology and creative arts. He keeps playing with technology and exploring new things in the digital world. This is fun and fulfilling at the same time. Over the years, he developed a keen bent of mind towards applying STEM, technology and Innovation concepts to address the challenges that our society faces and build creative and innovative solutions to these problems. As a means towards this goal of Innovation, he got interested in Coding as well. Along with classes in school, he keeps learning further and expanding his knowledge in the field of technology through various means such as online courses, tutorials, and research. So far, he has been able to build good knowledge of coding in HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT, PYTHON and he is learning C#, and data science these days.

Innovation has been our vision at DPS Sharjah! And our mission, to endeavour to facilitate every possible opportunity that will foster such creativity in our students. The culture of the school is such that if there is a problem, there is a solution! And ‘Dipsites’ need to find it! As an educator, I firmly believe that “You can teach a student a lesson for a day, but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, it will be a lifetime of learning”. This is the key to modern-day education…where we encourage creativity and exploration of ideas and facilitate the channel for innovation from a very young age! Today the field of education has embraced innovation, and this has radically altered the process of learning across all levels.

Keeping this in mind, our Innovation Hub (IH) is established to nurture a collaborative community, self-directed learning, enabling physical and virtual spaces to promote creativity, and to bring an entrepreneurial and ‘giving’ culture amongst the youth. It was established keeping in mind the requirements of the 21st century skills, global perspective, joyful and experiential learning, and this would enable the ‘school as a community’ to become the hub of innovation and give students the opportunity to drive their passion beyond limits.

Schools must become incubation centers where these young innovators are facilitated the space to work on their creativity whilst pursuing their academic goals.
