CircuiTricks is a start-up, by an 18 year old, which was born out of FabLab CEPT in Ahmedabad. The startup focused on creating Do It Yourself kits for school kids. It’s first DIY kit allowed students to create working electronic circuits using pencils only! It was the first time graphite inside pencil was used to make circuits at a large scale. After the launch of the product at the Fab10 conference in Barcelona and its engagement in Maker Faire Bay Area, CircuiTricks partnered up with Intel education and travelled all across India to cover 100 schools and over 10,000 students where they conducted workshops with the kids, teaching them fabrication of circuits using pencils!

With the use of quantitative, qualitative and deductive data collected from workshops conducted with over 10,000 students across India during February 2015 to March 2015 and concepts from behavioral economics and child psychology; the paper will focus on exploring theories for better education and student engagement in demographics with similar education system to India.

The major anti catalyst for developing countries to transform into developed countries is the presence of unstructured education. In India, for example, the high school education is often synonymous with -cramming-. Hence, the theories for better education mentioned in this paper, make it of a great value to these countries.
