The leading EdTech company known for delivering live online classes in Coding & Math, Whitehat Jr has partnered ace cricketer and former World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev with the idea of making learning fun for students. The project known as Kapil’s Swing Bowling XI will be interwoven in the Whitehat Jr curriculum to encourage students to create a mobile app that stimulates bowling on a cricket pitch by applying expert inputs in the form of bowling tips provided by the legendary cricketer.
Commenting on this association, Kapil Dev said, “The exposure that today’s kids have is unbelievable and this project with Whitehat Jr aims to inspire children to create their own mobile application building on nuggets offered by me is a prime example of how engaged thinking and learning can lead to pointed outcomes. To be able to involve the next generation to understand the science behind tried and tested bowling methodologies is remarkable. I am excited to see kids’ creative rendition in the form of new-age apps.”
Speaking about the project, Balaji Ramanujam, Chief Learning Officer, Whitehat Jr, said, “For children to become creators, we need to make learning fun, engaging, and application-oriented. We believe this project will pave the way for many such integrations across different interest areas that children have.”
