We do some very simple and basic stuff: we provide hands on learning experience to students with the help of very basic yet effective tools to develop scientific temperament among the young ones. The topics cover a wide variety of subjects and concepts bridging the gap between various streams of science and maths. With STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) related topics, we ensure an overall development of the students in an environment which they like – “outside the classroom”.
Topics of various curriculum created and presented using a combination of multimedia content and hands on activities for a better understanding of the concepts and greater learning of the science behind it. Group activities not only help learn better but also bring out social skills like team building, leadership qualities and being a team players.
Same flavour served differently but more systematically. In curriculum series, a number of concepts are covered and shared among the students with more emphasis on follow ups, Q&As and reiteration of explanation. The curriculum series deals with several concepts of same subject discussed over a period of one academic year. The delivery is a combination of general talks, multimedia presentations, hands on activities and field trips.
Short field trips include day trips to near by places for educational excursions. The most common examples of such outing can be educational visits to various industries like manufacturing, food processing, automobile and dairy. The visit to planetarium and museums are also organised. Visit to astronomical observatory can be arranged depending approval from the observatory.
Long field trips include trips to mountain for some fun, adventure, sightseeing and most important learning in the lap of nature. The mountains has a diverse ecosystem and a different lifestyle to offer while it test your endurance and strength. The sky shines bright and from sunrise to sunset shows you a new colour every instant. Spending two – three nights in the mountain can teach us a lot about this different world altogether.
Interesting things do not happen often. To spice up your learning, often we collaborate with national and international agencies to create more exciting opportunities for the students to work and learn. These special events can be celestial events like eclipses and observations or scientific projects like Asteroid Hunting or EarthKAM.
We at Astrophile believes that science is not for one but all. Science can not be limited to laboratories but should be extended to the nature. After all extracting numbers from nature is what we call science. In order to promote the scientific temperament to one and all, we have started a few projects for the citizens. Be it students, teachers, house-wives or working professionals, everyone can contributed their bit in doing science and this will enable us to make our world a better place.
