Robotics club aims at implementing technology enhanced learning in classrooms. It aims to promote robotics as a tool for application of concepts learnt by students in classrooms using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) integration by creating multiple intelligence based learning environment.
Robotics also provides an opportunity to rediscover and redesign learning by engaging students in an inquiry based approach to collaborate and be creative in solving open-ended robotics challenges. It is best suited for Challenge Based Learning and Problem Based Learning.
The module for the students help them to design and build their robots starting from the drawing board and it encourages students to program the robots for the autonomous part of the competition as well as user-controlled portion. Students learn the fundamentals of engineering design and computer programming. Students work in groups based on age and experience. It improves creative thinking skills, social skills, problem-solving skills & computer programming skills.
The key features of Robotics club are:
- Age appropriate robot design activities across grades.
- Easy to use cloud based programming interface.
- Assessment record of the students learning.
- Â Guided Powerpoint sessions to assist students in robot building.
In the current phase of technological revolution, innovations have become a part of every day life for humans. STEM education brings about a paradigm shift in early learning and aims to keep curiosity and genius streak of the kids intact through the growing years. The STEM field includes Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, all fields in high demand for a variety of industries. Getting a STEM education can lead to STEM careers. The STEM workforce provides the foundation for building the next innovations in tech, engineering, and other fields.
STEM education is best when it’s hands-on, allowing students to grasp complicated concepts in science, engineering, and other subjects. The subjects lay the foundation for 21st-century skills in high demand in today’s workforce. Students can begin their career preparations in high school without having a clear career path in mind and translate scientific and engineering thinking into their journey later on.
In today’s competitive times, it is vital to walk shoulder to shoulder with everyone. With the objective to prepare our children for tomorrow, the school in collaboration with science Olympiad Foundation (SOF), Silver Zone, Akhil Bhartiya Hindi, Teri Green Olympiad & Concours Roman Rolland French Olympiad conducts Olympiads in various disciplines like Mathematics, Science, IT, G.K., English, Hindi, French etc.
Astronomy is the branch of natural science that studies the elements of the universe including galaxies, planets, the Solar System, celestial objects, stars, comets, outer space phenomena and more. Major sub-disciplines of astronomy include astrophysics, physical cosmology, solar astronomy, planetary science and stellar astronomy. Astronomy provides an escape to the kids into the world of space, for which we ensure that hands on experiences are provided to the kids, For this we have a well furnished astronomy laboratory where kids could gain an insight into the space world.
To give students an opportunity to showcase and hone their talents and also prepare them for intra school competitions, various club activities are conducted through the year. We guide students to discover and create their own understanding Club activities not only help students shape their personal interests and hobbies but also improve their leadership and social skills .. Besides academics, co scholastic activities form an integral part of the school curriculum. This aspect includes wide range of co-curricular activities.
Trips and Excursions
Children who experience holistic development during their school years grow up to become global citizens. As important as it is to learn Math and English, it is equally necessary that kids in school get a proper education in the arts and are taken on field trips. Giving equal weightage to both indoor as well as outdoor activities is what will make children well prepared for what lies outside in the real world.
Trips and excursions play a prominent role in providing the child the desired experience. It is through these trips, a child learns to channelize his/her social skills. Also, a child gets extensive experience beyond four walls of classroom. So, the school organizes amusing and informative trips to diverse places.
The onus for providing a well-rounded educational experience for every student falls directly on the shoulders of the school administrators, teachers, faculty, and staff. However, this limited perspective overlooks the fact that much of a child’s life and education occurs outside the classroom. What happens before the school day starts and after it ends can be just as important and impactful in the lives of your students as what happens during the traditional school day. This is why community engagement and involvement in schools is such an important facet of the educational process.
Throughout a student’s life, it is important that students are given opportunities to volunteer their time and energy to help better their community and the lives of the people around them. These community outreach opportunities provide ways for students to make a difference in someone else’s life and realize the beauty of selflessness.
Students who spend time volunteering and working with others realize it can be up to them to make a change to social injustices. Students love being able to stand up for what they believe is right.
The visits have made our students empathetic and compassionate for the under-privileged and the needy ones and take pride in contributing to such worthy causes. This noble cause of spreading smiles and happiness among these less privileged children, has given immense peace and happiness to our team of students. The school is actively involved with an NGO and has actively taken part in collecting and sending donations for kerala relief fund, blanket donation etc. even during pandemic. A number of such visits are arranged throughout the year for the students to develop empathy and sensitivity among students.
Role of books from our lives cannot be robbed off but digitalisation and staying updated is part of living a wholesome life. The school believes in imparting best learning experience to the children. So, the school has installed Edu comp services to widen their learning experience.
Playing a sport at GD GOENKA PUBLIC SCHOOL, SECTOR 9, ROHINI is a great way for children to take a break from academics and release their effervescent energy. It also helps them lead fuller and happier lives as regular sports and fitness activities have proven to provide not only physical benefits but also social and psychological benefits to children.

We believe in mass participation, exposing our students to a number of sports events at inter-school, state, national and international levels. Every student is encouraged to join at least one school sports team. The P.E. teachers we employ are young and energetic with a good amount of expertise in sports and provide coaching for sports like cricket, basketball etc.
For students to know the benefits of the sports they play, they are informed about the body parts and muscle development in playing each sport along with game knowledge.
