Saturday Science School
Saturday Science School has focused its efforts on school
children. If groomed at proper age, children will become an asset to our
nation. In contrast to the didactic learning, we have emphasized on
Experiential science learning. Hands-on science activities help children
explore science at their own pace. They prove some hypotheses through
experiments and their results. This develops many qualities in children, like,
curiosity, observational skills, analytical approach, problem solving
techniques, scientific temperament, creativity, patience etc.A survey shows
that children at age of 10 spend over 30 hours a week watching TV, internet or
handling mobiles. It means by the time they reach their 8th grade, they would
have spent 5000 hours in wasteful activities. This is more than it takes to
obtain a bachelor’s degree.Our attempt is to give children science activities
to engage them intellectually and physically. The goal is not necessarily to
create scientists, but to create civilized Indians, who apply their brain to
the problems and use scientific approach to find their solution.
