Brought to you by Young-Scientist
Please note that this is a kid-only camp. 

Eligibility: Class IV to VIII

We use light every moment of the day when our eyes are open. It is important that we understand what it is and how it behaves. In this camp, we will explore the physics of light and optical devices. The camp includes a tour of theYS science Centre, a science show, workshop and a DIY section where each participant builds a periscope and takes it home!

Theme: Light, Electromagnetic Waves, DIY - build a periscope

DIY Project: 

  • Each participant will be building a periscope/pinhole camera.
  • All materials will be provided as a kit.

Tentative list of experiments:

  • Light bending
  • Snell's law
  • Prism magic
  • Hologram

Key Concepts:

  • LIght
  • Refraction
  • Reflection
  • Snell's Law
  • Refractive Index
  • Total Internal Reflection
  • Speed of light
  • Electromagnetic radiation

If you want to buy multiple tickets, please contact us to learn about any available discount.

Camp Philosophy

Camp Philosophy

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.
