Rashmi Jejurikar

Rashmi works as a curriculum and program developer at Agastya International Foundation, an NGO working in the space of hands-on science education for underprivileged children in rural India. After many years of research in Neuroscience at NCBS, Bangalore, Rashmi got very interested in school education and the neuroscience of how we learn. Rashmi believes that ThinQ was a transformative experience for her as it helped her overcome fear and insecurity associated with open exploration and begin to see it as an exciting journey. She is committed to developing an inquiry-oriented high school curriculum for Biology as well as pursuing research on how knowledge is created in the brain.

Aditi Ahuja

Aditi discovered her interest in thinking about education during a sociology lecture in her undergraduate degree. Since then, she has been volunteering and interning with various organisations that work in education and began working with ThinQ in July, 2018. Here, she learnt ways to tap into her intellectual interests and pursue them wholeheartedly. She is also trained in Bharatnatyam and enjoys reading about philosophy.
