Science and its mysteries have always intrigued children and they seem to have a never ending list of how’s, what’s and why’s. Reading is not the only way to unravel these mysteries. A practical hands-on approach works a lot better in clarifying scientific concepts and quenching their curiosity.
You may ask, why is CURIOSITY important ?
Well, I’m sure all of you understand that the tests that you score marks in, are to a large extent, memory tests ? They do not give you a feel for the “why” question. Nature and Science even, is all about “Why”.
- Why does paint peel off some walls but not from a drawing sheet ?
- Why do dry items not heat up in a microwave (eg. Thermocole) ?
- and a million other questions ….
And that’s where we come in.
ScienceAdda’s vision is to kindle children’s curiosity for science by facilitating exploratory learning. Our guiding principle is Hands-On = Minds-On, so we engage with children in a variety of stimulating ways.
We are so passionate about Curiosity that we are developing a new measure. CQ for Curiosity Quotient (just like your Intelligence Quotient or IQ and Emotional Quotient or EQ).
Our Pavilion shows run at schools and the duration of each is about 90 minutes. A pavilion is a thematic exploration on one topic : eg. Electricity, Water, Air & Atmosphere etc. Each theme covers all of the Science subjects ie. cuts across Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Environmental Sciences and even things like Geography.
Want to quench some electronics thirst? Presenting the FUNDATRONICS SERIES – a part of our experiential learning foray. We believe that electronics is not rocket science and is for everyone so, we have developed our own base board to enable learning how electrical and electronics circuits function, through multiple modules and subscription kits. Kids can also bring in old electronic items that are no longer working (Eg. TV remote, old radio, old telephone), pull out the individual components and build something NEW.

ScienceAdda presents some full filled workshops to keep the kids busy during vacation. We offer workshops on ‘Fundatronics’ and ‘Garage Chemistry’. These fun filled workshops are sure to keep the little ones busy.So what’s unique about our workshops? For starters, the workshops include theme based Pavilions that are curator led. Apart from the learning experience, we also have a bit of fun with electronics, not to mention group DIY activities and more. Rest assured, your child will know a lot more and be ready to TEACH you when he/she returns from our workshops.
