Rashmi works as a curriculum and program developer at Agastya International Foundation, an NGO working in the space of hands-on science education for underprivileged children in rural India. After many years of research in Neuroscience at NCBS, Bangalore, Rashmi got very interested in school education and the neuroscience of how we learn. Rashmi believes that ThinQ was a transformative experience for her as it helped her overcome fear and insecurity associated with open exploration and begin to see it as an exciting journey. She is committed to developing an inquiry-oriented high school curriculum for Biology as well as pursuing research on how knowledge is created in the brain.
