Eligibility: Class III to VI Designed and brought to you by Young-Scientist. in.
Want your child to learn the secret of lifting heavy objects? Did you know you could lift a 1kg weight like a feather using a few simple contraptions? The secrets will be revealed in this fun and engaging workshop on Simple Machines!
This is a powerful concept taken for granted because it is very 'simple'. The feeling one gets when using combinations of simple machine is quite exciting. In this workshop, children will get to experience the effortlessness while using mechanical systems such as lever systems, pulleys etc. They will be given an overall view of concepts such as Effort, Load, Fulcrum, Friction, Weight etc. At the end of the day, they will be able to identify simple machines in their everyday lives and put them to use to make everyday chores easier.
Classes of Levers
Objective: Apply Newton's laws to simple machines and understand mechanical advantage through hands-on activities.
Young-Scientist.in ensures that at least 50% of its programs contain hands-on activities. We believe that learning is best when immediately reinforced by a visual and tangible lesson. Some of the experiments we do are demonstrations for the safety of the children. However, none of our workshops is "pure theory/lecture", unless otherwise stated. We encourage the children's active participation in experiments/activities whenever possible.
The key concepts per session will be kept minimal and simple.
They will be reinforced repeatedly, along with experiments, to achieve the desired learning outcomes.
Experiments and activities will be distributed over the duration of the session.
Theory sessions will be brief and serve to connect the different activities.
Videos and animations will be employed whenever possible.
Worksheets and Observation sheets will be provided wherever necessary.
