1) Rather than focus on a topic or attempt to teach them a scientific principle, we use topics to get the children to take a different approach to learning. One in which, instead of asking, "How can I do this?” a kid asks "Can I do this?”
2) The idea is to introduce the children to a topic - be it chromatography, photography, animal behaviour or estimations and get them to come up with creative solutions to problems set in this area.
3) Some of the exercises are designed to make the children solve mechanical problems which then gives them a chance to redesign their models after an initial test. The idea is not for them to learn the words "force, or fulcrum, or velocity", but to allow them to be creative, and understand these forces and balances, with an objective in mind. We hope this will later come to their mind when they study forces and vectors as part of their regular curriculum.
Curiouscity - Creating Scientific Temperament
We attempt to get the children to create their own little moments of scientific discovery, their own little moments of WOW.
We deliver innovative, hands-on activities related to science, which are educational, as well as challenging and fun.
Offering kids the possibility of exploration and experimentation on their own. This is what we call "Creating Scientific Temperament" amongst children. This is done in an interactive, challenging, and fun filled way.
We provide a framework whereby we introduce an idea and then allow children to work in groups, (which also helps them to get over any fear of not knowing an answer), to solve problems or facilitate the movement of the class based on their questions and interests even if it does not move in the direction we planned for. Doing so nurtures the child's natural curiosity and allows them the freedom to think through their own solutions, many of which we are often amazed by.
We have designed over 30 workshops with the aim of getting the children to experiment and learn basics of science techniques through experimentation, analysis and observation. The binding factor in each is that the children investigate while we facilitate.
