  18. 18. Education is essential, but we all know practical experience is a must. This is exactly what the course aims to achieve by encouraging its students to start on-campus ventures and work on their ventures post their daily routine classes. As a result, we have some excellent ventures that have either already come up or are coming up soon. A look at what CME students do to outwork themselves and challenge themselves with new ideas and ventures. A sneak peek at some of the exciting ventures at CME Srujanika is a project initiated by a team of highly motivated individuals aimed at making a significantOutwork difference in the field of education in India. A major cause of concern in the Indian public education system is its low quality of delivery, and improper pedagogy, insipid syllabus which hampers in lost of childrens interest. We believe, this can be alleviated if we bring in more creative methods to educate the children in schools. This is the base on which project Srujanika was developed. Srujanika is intended to improve the standard of education in the underprivileged part of India. Apart from that this project is intended to look at the opportunity in schools for film animation and media education as a part of the curriculum. This will help in developing skilled and creative resources in different parts of India, which can match the quality of world class animated product. - Amit Sahoo and Nirav ( Team Srujanika) MICA - PGPCME 15
