Looking Back in Time: Our mornings will begin with conversations about people whose ideas created the world as we know it today. Through storytelling, movies and conversations, students will learn about the life, work and contributions of prominent explorers, physicists, naturalists and mathematicians among many others.
The World of Math: From number theory to complex geometrical shapes, the World of Math sessions will take students through the journey of mathematics. We will try to figure out the ‘why’ of things and understand the role of Math in engineering our cosy homes to building work stations in space.
The World of Science: In the World of Science sessions, we will recreate the Eureka moments of scientific history in our classroom. From the invisible molecules of air to the secrets that light carries, from forces of attraction to the electric thunder bolts in the sky, students will spend quality time experiencing natural phenomena from a scientific lens.
Design Challenges: Through this very interesting team building exercise, students will participate in the engineering design process. They will be challenged to solve a problem using limited number of resources, just as in the real world. We will build bridges, construct chairs, drop eggs and do much more to unleash our hidden creativity.
Writing Scientific and Mathematical Proofs: Very often students figure out concepts and even come up with new hypotheses, but find it difficult to articulate it accurately using correct mathematical language. These sessions will prepare students to use the language of math to write and understand technical literature.
Film Screenings: We plan to take out some time every day to watch interesting documentaries and movies that truly glorify the field of math and science. Students are welcome to bring in their own CDs and recommendations.
