Gurugram-based Edtech startup, PlanetSpark announces ‘Happiness Hour’ to maintain the mental and emotional well-being of children, during the ongoing pandemic.

PlanetSpark stated that The Happiness Hour has been designed with a vision to offer for free, courses in Languages, Cognitive and Creative & Aesthetic skills, from 1-2 pm every day.

Conducted by industry experts such as via Live Online learning, the 'Happiness Hour' will focus on areas including communication, writing, coding, robotics, problem-solving, concept framing, visual design, photography, music, and chess .

Speaking of the Happiness Hour, Kunal Malik, Co-Founder, PlanetSpark, said,“This is one step further by PlanetSpark to recognize and cater to the mental and emotional well-being of children in general, and more so during the ongoing pandemic. We have observed that while the academic needs of children are given adequate attention, their emotional and personal development needs can often go unfulfilled. In an attempt to have as many children benefit from this initiative as possible, we have made these carefully curated courses free on our platform between 1-2 pm everyday terming it as the ‘Happiness Hour.’"

The ed-tech company said it has designed the module to cater to kids aged 4-12 years with specific courses introduced for different age brackets. The Happiness Hour is modelled on various new age concepts of teaching, including curated live online classes, learning paths, instructional pedagogy, gamified, and activity-based learning.

The startup is backed by India’s homegrown education company, FIITJEE. The company is gearing to grow 10 times in the next six months to become the go-to learning destination for building new-age skills, PlanetSpark noted.
