The innovative team from Universe Simplified, headed by Henna Khan worked enthusiastically with twenty of our kids, to break down complex concepts like ‘friction’ and ‘speed’ through an exciting activity- the kids were given material like cardboard, spokes, straws,wheels and balloons, after which they were split into groups and were told to make their very own miniature car! Needless to say they loved every second of the challenge! To add to the fun, there was a competition to judge which group made the fastest car. After this the kids reflected and analysed the strengths and weaknesses in their models, using the scientific concepts they had learnt through the experience.It truly was an enriching afternoon and we all look forward to this exciting weekly workshop.
