Street Sholinganallur, YS Science Centre Plot No 10 3rd Street
Date: Sat, 25 May 10:30AM - 4:00PM + more dates Venue: YS Science Centre Price: Rs 2500 Details: Brought to you by Young-Scientist Please note that this is a kid-only camp. Eligibility: Class IV to VIII 2-days 4-projects! This camp is a culmination of sorts to our three-year research into progressive science education for children. The YS SkillPro Camp highlights many of the skills that we have identified in children that need special attention. These are aspects of a child's growth that don't receive complete attention and nurturing in schools. These include: Fine motor skills Use of mechanical tools Adhesives and Materials Design and Crafting Solid waste reclamation "Trash to Cash" Gardening Composting, Manure and Plant care Survival skills Electrical wiring Product development Use of electrical tools Participants will receive training in the above by way of carefully designed activities and DIY projects. DIY or Do-It-Yourself is a movement that encourages individuals to use and develop their skills to solve problems through tinkering, fabrication, and re-purposing. SkillPro Camp is an advanced camp that provides hands-on experience in many skills that improve the quality of life. These skills have a foundation in science and are commonly used in everyday life. All the projects are take-home models. Note: This is a two-day event. When purchasing the tickets please choose the first date and you will be eligible to attend all the sessions. The camp fee is for all the sessions altogether. Group discount may be offered on purchase of multiple tickets. If you would like to learn more, please get in touch with us. Camp Agenda: Day 1: Crafting 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM Develop fine motor skills. Advanced techniques in use of scissors, paper knife etc. Apply origami skills to Aero-Modeling.

Learn about Home Wiring, Fuse, Phase, Power, Voltage, Current, Grounding, etc. Project 4: Table Lamp Note: The listed projects are liable to change if necessary. Please get in touch to receive the latest information. Lunch break will be between 12:30 PM and 1:30 PM. You can send packed lunch with your child or return to take them out for food. Camp Philosophy: Young-Scientist ensures that at least 50% of its programs contain hands-on activities. We believe that learning is best when immediately reinforced by a visual and tangible lesson. Some of the experiments we do are demonstrations for the safety of the children. However, none of our workshops are pure theory/lecture, unless otherwise stated. We encourage the children's active participation in experiments/activities whenever possible. The key concepts per session will be kept minimal and simple. They will be reinforced repeatedly, along with experiments, to achieve the desired learning outcomes. Experiments and activities will be distributed over the duration of the session. Theory sessions will be brief and serve to connect the different activities. Videos and animations will be employed whenever possible. Worksheets and Observation sheets will be provided wherever necessary.
