Annual Report of IGENPLUS (20-21)

Annual Report of IGENPLUS (20-21)

A joint venture between Indic Academy and Soumya Aggarwal, IGENPLUS is a K12 school for culture and creativity that helps children transform into global leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. Through programs that are based on our civilisational thought we endeavour to make our students rooted yet free.

The annual report for the 20-21 by Soumya Aggarwal is given below:

“In the past one year we designed multiple programs to meet various needs of the student. From 40 minute live webinar interaction to 3 months long intensive training, our programs filled the learning gaps built due to online learnings and restricted curriculum. 


Our activities can be segregated under 5 different categories:

  • Global Youth Leadership Certificate Program : (1 )
  • Contests : (18 )
  • Courses : (17)
  • Webinars : (39)
  • Workshops : (3)

A Total of 78 activities were conducted including a 3 month long certificate program- Global Youth Leadership Program with 15 students. 39 webinars were conducted with an average of 25 participants in each webinar and more than 200 views in the live webinars. 18 contests were conducted with FinBu Ninja being the largest competition conducted alongside 2 partners having received over 1700 applications. A total of 17 courses were conducted with each course providing the students with an average of 10 hrs of learning. Last year was certainly difficult but proved to be a big step for IGP’s entry into online education.
