I hear and I forget, I see and I remember. I do and I understand.
August 5 and 6, 2021 were innovative and experimental days for all the students of grades III, IV, V as we organized Scienceporium, a month full of Science activities and talks through a virtual platform. The activities were a wonderful tool that engaged students in learning new facts related to principles of Science. It developed in them a sense of curiosity to learn more in an interesting and experiential way.
Inspired, encouraged and motivated budding scientists of Grade V, performed the activity of Dancing Arrows- an optical illusion. Learners discovered the way light is affected when moving from one medium to another (such as from air to water or visa versa) and refraction happens whenever light passes from one medium to another.
Learners of grade IV were introduced to some facts behind delusions like- swallow tulsi leaves but never chew and eat curd and sugar before heading out. This enhanced their critical thinking skills and developed the way of knowing, based on evidence.
Learners of grade III demonstrated an activity of making bubbles with a long tail. They learnt that a bubble is just air wrapped in a soap film. Soap and water work as a team and holds the air inside. This activity developed a scientific approach behind everyday Science.
It was wonderful to watch little kids experimenting, thinking and analyzing, which taught us that we and science are made for each other.
