This Saturday, 21st of April 2018, we are conducting an Science Open Day at Sir C.V. Raman’s old home, Panchavati, in Malleswaram, Bangalore. Much like our first Open Day held last November, the premise of this Open Day is to have live laboratory stalls where a selection of activities will be facilitated by our educators throughout the day, and any visitor can register, come, attend and make as many of the activities on offer as they want and take back home with them: all for free.
The stalls will be active all day, from 10AM to 5PM, and it is recommended you register beforehand (to avoid queues at the venue on the day) at to claim your free essential materials kit by showing your confirmation email upon arrival at Panchavati. We have a whole new selection of activities, like stethoscope, acrylic microscope, speed and acceleration measurements, DIY Music and Straw Propeller.
This is Open in the true sense: completely free to attend, people could come in and go out whenever they want (10AM to 5PM), and anyone could try, experiment and learn a little more of science. Get all your family, relatives, neighbours and friends to register and attend the Open Day. You can come in and go out as you want. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday; you are bound to leave with your hands and minds full of exciting science experiments.
The workshops are designed for children in the 8-15 age-group. Children who are 6-7 years old may also attend, but will need an accompanying adult with them at all times. Those 16 and over are of course welcome to attend, as the activities are fun and engaging for people of all ages. The workshops won’t be suitable or beneficial for those 5 and below.
Even for those who have attended the ISPF workshops or Summer Camp in Bangalore before, the Science Toys and Science Experiments are unlikely to be repeats and there will be ample scope and materials to explore, make variants, document your observations and take the experience to the next level. It will be a wholly unique experience.
Children will need to make their own arrangements for transport and food/refreshments.
Register, so you can avoid the queue at the venue and let us know you will be coming! Save the confirmation email you receive to get your material kit for the day. If this location or date is not convenient to you, look up for other options during this Summer Vacation.
Science is being taught as in the 1970s, with chalk and talk. This rote learning makes science dull and boring for many, causing an aversion to science.
This summer, let you child have fun with science; making toys, models and conducting experiments while learning key principles of science.
ThinkTac offers Experiential science programmes providing materials and resources to create, experiment, tinker, innovate and kinaesthetically learn science. Children are encouraged to explore beyond the present activity, with materials that can be found around the house, reinforcing the science while honing creative, critical thinking and problem- solving skills.
The workshops are designed for children in the 8-15 age-group. Children who are 6-7 years old may also attend, but will need an accompanying adult with them at all times. Those 16 and over are of course welcome to attend, as the activities are fun and engaging for people of all ages, but they may not be linked to their specific curriculum/age-group. The workshops won’t be suitable or beneficial for those 5 and below.
These workshops are being designed based on our annual programmes that are curriculum aligned. We have two variants offering the Lite (1-week) and Explore (2-week) option at Panchavati. The Lite programme consists of 20 Tactile Science activities, to be covered across 5 sessions over 1 week. Those choosing the Explore option, will have twice as many TACtivities and will stay on for a week longer, going deeper into one of the themes. Each session will be 3.5 hrs per day, Monday to Friday, with a choice of either the morning or afternoon batch.
