‘Out of the Box’ Workshop: A Journey into the Wonders of Science at Ekya Nava

On 10th February 2024, Ekya Nava campus transformed into a buzzing hive of curiosity and excitement, as the school in collaboration with the renowned education technology firm Think Tac, hosted the innovative workshop ‘Out of the Box’. Aimed at children aged 4-10, the event offered a hands-on exploration of the scientific concepts of friction and movement through a lens that was as fun as it was educational.

As the clock struck 10 AM, the air was charged with anticipation. The young participants, accompanied by their equally eager parents, embarked on a scientific sojourn that promised to unravel the mysteries of nature through immersive learning experiences. The workshop’s unique approach of using simple materials like straws, thread, and cardboard allowed children to construct models of seed dispersal techniques and climbers, offering a tangible connection to the theoretical concepts of science.

‘Out of the Box’ was a celebration of the innate curiosity that dwells within every child. Through activities that blended learning with play, the workshop illuminated the principles of friction and movement in a manner that was accessible, engaging, and most importantly, enjoyable.

The day-long event saw Ekya Nava’s campus abuzz with the kind of infectious enthusiasm that only the pursuit of knowledge can evoke. Children huddled over their projects, experimenting and tweaking, as they applied the concepts of science in real time. The joy of discovery was evident on their faces as they watched their creations come to life, a testament to the success of the workshop’s hands-on approach to education.

This collaboration between Ekya Nava and Think Tac highlighted the importance of innovative educational practices that encourage active participation and critical thinking. By bringing theoretical concepts to life through practical application, ‘Out of the Box’ not only engaged young minds but also inspired a deeper understanding and appreciation of the natural world.

As the workshop concluded, it was clear that the participants had embarked on much more than a scientific exploration. They had journeyed through the phases of creativity, teamwork, and problem-solving, equipped with nothing but their imagination and simple materials. ‘Out of the Box’ proved to be a milestone in experiential learning, reinforcing the belief that when education transcends the traditional boundaries of classrooms, it has the power to ignite a lifelong passion for discovery.
