About us

Young Tinker Educational Foundation (formerly Navonmesh Prasar Foundation) is a non-profit organization with a vision to build an equitable world through STEAM education and skills of the future.

We are on a mission to democratize access to the world’s best hands-on STEAM education to enable makers and innovators of today and tomorrow.

What started with a spark on a remote island in Odisha today stands proud of its student’s achievements at the International level. It is indeed a matter of pride for us in terms of what the Young Tinker Foundation has accomplished in these years. 

We also made history by securing World Rank 3 at NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge 2021. This achievement made India proud as we’re the 1st team in Asia to achieve so. This is a testimony of the great work that we do at our foundation.
