Developed by Young-Scientist Please note that this is a kid-only workshop
Eligibility: Class III to VI
Light, the reason why we can see the world around us. It's time to take a more advanced study of the properties of light and optics- the physics of lenses and optical phenomenon.
A combination of demonstrations and hands-on experiments are devised in this workshop for children to have a better understanding of light. Different lenses will be introduced and their unique properties studied. We will be using lasers to see how light is bent by refraction.
Tentative List of Experiments:
Nature of light
Total Internal Reflection
Understand the properties of Convex and Concave lens
Introduction to special devices such as Fresnel lens
Young-Scientist 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.
