Anirudh  Shenoy was a Graduate Analyst for NCGrowth in Fall 2016. During his time with NCGrowth, Anirudh worked with P&A Industrial Fabrications, a manufacturer producing premium woven fabrics, on a range of projects to improve plant efficiency.

Upon completion of his master’s degree in Industrial Engineering, Anirudh started a STEM based learning company called Elementory, aimed at bridging the gap between innovation and problem solving. Anirudh described his work as follows:

The most recurring issue faced by educators is to make STEM concepts more relatable to kids. Elementory provides tools to educators to bring STEM problem-solving experiences in schools. Our open-source tool kit consists of modular hardware, intuitive block programming, and a challenge-based learning content – all built to encourage tinkering and foster creativity among kids. These problem-solving experiences are designed to be the bridge between school curriculum and the real world. We are currently running a pilot program for 100 kids aged 11-14 years and plan to expand to 10,000 kids next year. Elementory’s mission is to catalyze the problem-solving mindset in kids from a young age, enabling them to design solutions to societal challenges when they are older.

NCGrowth couldn’t be more proud of the work Anirudh is doing to foster positive educational experiences.
