Arvindguptatoys is a platform for students, teachers, educators, and science enthusiasts to explore creative and cost-effective ways of learning Science. The platform primarily focuses on creating Toys from Trash and has been founded by Arvind Gupta, an IIT Kanpur alumnus, who received Padam Shree in 2018 for his valuable contribution to the field of Education. Resources available include books, articles, films, and videos on making toys by reusing everyday things around that are considered trash. The idea is that students learn through hands-on practice. Each toy on the platform has been conceptualized based on scientific principles. So, while creating the toy, the student is exposed and familiarized with how these principles work in action.. At present, the website has toys and activities listed under 21 science categories like biology, astronomy, electricity, friction, heat, etc. Demonstrations for creating these toys or designing activities are available in the form of small videos of 1-2 minutes and DIY documents in English and fifteen Indian languages. Their popularity has also inspired their translation to foreign languages. Apart from toys, the platform also has more than 2500 books consisting of some of the best education classics, books about scientists, books on Science, peace, environment, children's books, translations of Russian classics, books on democracy and social justice, Nai Talim and many others.
