Arvind Gupta is an inventor and educator in India. He drew inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi, a political and spiritual leader who helped India achieve independence. Gandhi also shaped Martin Luther King's beliefs.

Gupta has collected and developed experiments that express big ideas and excitement with small expense. His goal: bring the experience of science to every community. Build a Mag Lev Land Speeder, super hero, and an artful magnetic top. Then help adapt new designs from the 600 that Arvind Gupta and his colleagues have worked on. Build some of those to take home and some to enjoy here.

Spend part of your day preparing projects that will be shared with other eager learners joining in the spirit of Arvind Gupta's vision.
