About Center for Creative Learning, IIT Gandhinagar
The Center for Creative Learning came into being in April 2017, as a space that nurtures a scientific temper and the inherent creativity in students and teachers alike. The idea was, and remains, to immerse oneself in a subject in order to learn it, to do rather than read.
