Preamble India’s future rests on its ability to harness the creative potential of its large young population. In order to foster innovation and creativity, problem and project-based learning (PBL) play an important role. These help to link education to relevant in real-life experience and this connection is crucial for engaging the young minds and increasing their motivation levels. Undertaking innovative experiments, projects and problem solving exercises in multi-disciplinary set up brings joy to learning. The enjoyment factor involved in such engagement enhances young people’s motivation and interest levels, thereby opens doors for flow and creativity. Thus, provision of innovation spaces in schools and colleges, science centers or institutions of non-formal learning, where such activities can be undertaken is recognized to play an important role in fostering creativity and inspiring innovation by young students. This will ultimately lead to developing a culture of innovation in the country. Objectives SPICE Centers will be located both at after school and in education institutions that promote creativity & inspire innovations. It would not only promote more effective utilization of these centers, but would redefine their usage and role in fostering problem solving and project based learning and provide hands on / practical learning and engagement in the process of science, technology and innovation. What is an SPICE Club? SPICE Clubs would help to engage youth in innovative and creative activities. These would serve as springboards for new ideas and innovation and thus helping the society and economy to face future challenges and meet rising aspirations of the growing population. The main motto of the club is to promote INNOVATION CREATIVITY AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP ( ICE ) among youth
