Building a STEM metaverse, one rocket launch at a time

In a world where kids' dreams often reach for the stars, there's a trio of dream-weavers at Kalam Labs turning those cosmic aspirations into reality.

Ahmad Faraaz, Sashakt Tripathi, and Harshit Awasth aren't just building a STEM metaverse for kids aged 6 to 14; they're launching rockets of imagination and curiosity.

The cosmic conclave: Founders crafting a stellar journey

Picture this: Three individuals sit around a table, fueled by caffeine and the audacity to think big. Ahmad, Sashakt, and Harshit, the masterminds behind Kalam Labs, had a grander plan in mind.

A special world is being created for kids to discover the wonders of science, with a focus on the awe-inspiring mysteries of outer space.

Liftoff laughter: A humorous prelude to space exploration

As these founders embarked on their journey, they realized that making science entertaining is no rocket science.

Insert Kalam Labs – the world's first kid's space organization. Because let's be honest, what's space exploration without a touch of humor? Rockets may reach astronomical heights, but laughter is truly limitless.

Game on, galaxies: Kalam Labs' playground of learning

Kalam Labs isn't your average after-school program. No sir, it's a playground where learning is the game, and the game is out of this world.

Kids take part in quizzes that feel more like intergalactic adventures than mundane tests. It's a fun space game, where the quest for knowledge is as thrilling as a spacewalk.

Stellar rewards: Real opportunities in the cosmic classroom

But here's the real kicker. The top performers don't just get gold stars; they get tickets to ride on real-scale space projects under India's top universities.

That's right – these pint-sized space enthusiasts aren't just dreaming; they're building rockets, exploring galaxies, and maybe plotting the course for the next cosmic conquest.

From telescopes to teacups: Kalam Labs' holistic approach

Beyond the quizzes and rocket launches, Kalam Labs takes it a step further. Telescope sessions become a window to the cosmos for these young astronomers. It's not just about theoretical knowledge; it's about holding the universe in your hands – or at least through a telescope lens.

Meet the magicians: Ahmad, Sashakt, and Harshit's spellbinding vision

Ahmad Faraaz, Sashakt Tripathi, and Harshit Awasth are more than just tech experts; they are conjuring a mesmerizing STEM metaverse that has captured the imagination of 300,000 kids.

Imagine, kids willingly spending 3 to 5 hours per week learning on a platform. It's not just education; it's a cosmic adventure, and Kalam Labs is the spaceship taking them to uncharted territories of knowledge.

Investors joining the cosmic caravan

The financial industry is backing Kalam Labs, with a $2 million investment from Lightspeed India, GSV Capital, and Y Combinator.

This investment demonstrates that investors see the potential of a metaverse that is both educational and entertaining, not just children exploring uncharted territories.

Where dreams become rockets

In the grand theater of dreams, Kalam Labs isn't just a player; it's the director of a cosmic blockbuster. It's a place where kids don't just dream; they build, explore, and conquer.

So, here's to Kalam Labs – where the universe isn't the limit; it's just the beginning. After all, who says learning can't be as vast and limitless as the cosmos?
