Innovatia

Inculcating a Scientific Temperament

We aim to nurture big-thinkers, problem solvers, discoverers. We can only achieve this by encouraging curiosity and passion in the young minds of our budding scientists.

Innovatia is an initiative to inculcate scientific temper in our children’s young minds through intensively planned, age appropriate hands on activities in the scientific field. Interaction with eminent scientists will inspire and enlighten out young minds.

The program was designed on experiential learning cycle:

Experiential learning cycle

This hands-on learning allows students to achieve the highest cognitive development as it is proven to be the best learning method. The focus is on creating based on the concrete to abstract learning strategy. Our insistence on experiential learning through experiments gives children the idea of working with trial and error. Children learn from their mistakes and understand the potential gaps between theory and practice. They can also brainstorm ways to fill these gaps in new, innovative ways.

A tour to Bamboo Farm

We live on the most beautiful planet ‘Earth’, which has a very clean and attractive nature. Nature is our best friend. The most precious Gift given to us by GOD! Escaping away in the nature heals the mind and body and soothes our soul. It is the nature that provides us with so much of liveliness and happiness. Nature has so much to give us and in so many ways.

 

Nowadays, children are not exposed to the open. They are more involved into social media and indoor activities. This is not definitely where we want to head to!

 

Keeping this current scenario in mind, we decided introducing a nature trail, “VIGYAN BHRAMANTI”. This is an endeavour to provide hands on experience to the children so that they swing high into the cradle of nature. Today we see a lack quality time spent between the child-parent at the home front. This program would help us to take an added step towards building up the bonding and creating a rapport. The bonding not only between the child-parent but also among the teacher-child-parent outside the school.

 

This program would help them to explore, understand, observe and love nature.
We proudly would like to put forth that our first tour was a great success.
The children were taken to Bamboo Farm at Shedani in Mulshi Taluka on 21st Feb’20 The main places we visited there were the ‘Bamboo Plantation’ , Bamboo House and Bamboo Factory.

 

We all were walking through the bamboo trails, there were 28 different types of bamboo species cultivated by Mr. Satpute. The scientist, Dr. Taitaly answered all the quires raised by our little children and explained coning to their level. Children were satisfied . They came to about the whole process of bamboo cultivation to the end product of bamboo articles when we visited the factory. We enjoyed our lunch amidst the rustle of Bamboos.

 

This trip helped to strengthen the teacher-student bond. The students had a great time learning and enjoying the nature simultaneously.
