Brought to you by Young-Scientist. Please note that this is a kid-only workshop Eligibility: Class III to VI
We live under constant pressure...not social pressure or financial pressure, but atmospheric pressure!
We use pressure cookers every day.
We travel in pressurized cabins of aircraft. Vehicles use pressurized air to inflate tires, work suspension systems, etc.
Food is packaged in vacuum-sealed packets. Soda is bottled under pressure, etc.
We use pressure constantly, but, what is it? Come find out the science behind pressure and its practical application. Add a new layer of detail to how you see this world.
This workshop will be an exploration of atmospheric sciences and applied physics. We'll demonstrate cloud formation and build simple barometers. There will be a combination of theory and experiment to simplify the concepts from meteorology.

Young-Scientist (YS) was founded in 2015 with the aim to make science simple and fun for children. It provides science enrichment programs that emphasize visual learning and employs hands-on activities.
Are you guys from IIT-Madras?
The YS team comprises of members from a varied background. The founder studied Chemistry in graduate school and built a career in the IT industry spanning two decades. We have physics majors, chemistry enthusiasts, engineers, science lovers, retired professors, researchers and others in the team - united by our aim to make science accessible to all.
What else do you do besides science workshops?
We organize science camps and run science clubs in schools and apartments. We are passionate about education research and are constantly developing teaching tools, experiment kits, science curriculum, infographics, etc. We also design YS Exploration Studio - a comprehensive science lab for schools.
