Workshop

Model Rocketry Workshop

These workshops aim to train students in the designing of model rockets. Students deal with the principal of rocket and make different designs to get maximum height. Students know process of fabrication and working of the rockets and their engines. Students make their models/designs in group or individually and launch. They measure the height of the rocket using trigonometry and the highest height gainer gets awarded.

Few experiences can compare with the excitement and thrill of watching a rocket-powered vehicle, such as the Space Shuttle, thunder into space. Dreams of rocket flight to distant worlds fire the imagination of both children and adults. With some simple and inexpensive materials, you can mount an exciting and productive unit about rockets for children that incorporate science, mathematics, and technology education. The many activities in our KRCSC, Bhavnagar contained in these teaching science communicators emphasize hands-on involvement, prediction, data collection and interpretation, teamwork, and problem solving.

Furthermore, our science communicator contains background information about the history of rockets and basic rocket science to make you and your students “rocket scientists.” Our science communicator begins with background information on the history of rocketry, scientific principles, and practical rocketry. The sections on scientific principles and practical rocketry focus on Sir Isaac Newton’s Three Laws of Motion. These laws explain why rockets work and how to make them more efficient. Also we included is information about where the activity applies to science and mathematics standards, assessment ideas, Rocket Principal, Designs, Single stage rocket, Double stage rocket, Parachute rocket, Calibration, Launching the rocket, Lunching rocket with remote control, and Measuring height of rocket. Many of the KRCSC, Bhavnagar activities encourage student for problem-solving and cooperative learning.

 

Origami Workshop

 

Origami was initially known as orikata (folded shapes). In 1880, however, the craft became known as origami. The term origami comes from the Japanese words oru (to fold) and kami (paper). 

As paper became more affordable, common people began making origami figures as gifts or creating folded cards and envelopes for their correspondence. Origami also started to be used as an educational tool, since the folding process involves many concepts that are relevant to the study of Mathematics.

Modern origami has attracted a worldwide following, with ever more intricate designs and new techniques. One of these techniques is 'wet-folding,' the practice of dampening the paper somewhat during folding to allow the finished product to hold shape better. Variations such as modular origami, also known as unit origami, is a process where many origami units are assembled to form an often decorative whole.

We KRCSC, Bhavnagar through a range of Origami Workshops  we can explore the varieties of paper folding activities including making and performance.

This workshop is held as part of a investigative thrust to explore potential research directions in Origami. The goal of this workshop is to recruit experts in art, science and engineering to discuss potential application of origami to real world engineering applications. The workshop will consist of brief lectures by all senior participants and will encourage discussion, interaction, and future collaboration. 

Our aim to hold Origami Workshop is to Introduce simple mathematics and logical thinking through paper folding activities and main objective is to introduce paper art in practical use and inspire students to think and imagine.  Each individual workshop will explore and teach the ways of creating characterful paper folding out of a range of materials. At the end of each workshop it is good fun to perform with the paper folding, and even continue to use them for bigger events. We are also looking forward to organize such similar programmes like Paper Clay Workshop (Enhance students observation and originality, at the same time feeling successful and confident), Paper Crafts Workshop (Nurture your kids' concentration and hand-eye-brain coordination, and improve their Emotional Quotient), and Creative Recycling Workshop(Recycling and reusing domestic waste in making arts and crafts can train students to be dexterous and teach them the importance of environment protection).

 

Science Model Making Workshop

When Newton saw the apple falling he had not thought it usual, he thought it differently and because of that Newton’s Law came in to our life. We all are using science in our day to day life; still we don’t know the hidden science behind that. So to give such type of knowledge such workshops are very much useful.

This is a great activity to increase the interest of children in science. This workshop is very creative and innovative. It gives practical and fundamental knowledge of science. By participating in this work shop children can practically know that on which scientific rule routine science models are working.

We are inviting all schools for such workshops and trying to raise awareness about science creatively.

 

Maths Model Making Workshop

If we say a “Math practical”, people might be surprised. But it is possible here in this workshop. Against popular belief, Math is a very interesting subject. This workshop is a great way to solidify Math fundamentals. For Math it is not possible to mug up, so if you do it practically and that is also with models you will remember basics of Math for lifetime. So, this is the workshop where we are showing that Math is not a boring subject if you learn it practically. To teach different laws of Math we are making lots of models.

Making Math Real is a comprehensive professional development program for all parents, educators and educational institutions.  So here with this mission we KRCSC, Bhavnagar focus of making Math Real is the integration of key cognitive development with comprehensive knowledge of mathematics for all learners. Our Purpose of Making Math Real is to provide this developmental integration for the full diversity of processing styles Under workshop of Maths Games and Problem Solving,

We KRCSC, Bhavnagar, exercise critical thinking and creativity skills of students through a series of fun and challenging mathematical games, which include constructing shapes and polygons, cracking codes, arranging objects and numbers into the correct sequences or simply finding the missing piece to the puzzle in this fun workshop. In this activity-based lesson, we provide with templates and materials to assemble colorful and amazing 3D mathematical shapes such as the rotating hexagonal ring and the rotating octagonal ring. This is because geometry is an essential part of our lives.

To improve logic in children we have very good puzzles in our science centre.

 

Kitchen Chemistry Workshop

Kitchen is the daily biggest laboratory handled by most of the women. All processes done in kitchen are directly or indirectly an experiment. In all processes of kitchen hidden science is there, but very few women realize it.

Primary beneficiaries of workshop are women of Aanganwadi. In this workshop we are teaching them the analysis of food products by very simple home based tests. We also teach them food adulteration tests. By such workshop we are bringing awareness about food quality materials too. We also discuss nutritional value of food.

 

Summer Science Creativity Workshop

For all parents, most challenging period during the entire year is summer vacation. The challenge is not only to keep them busy, but to hone their skills and nurture their creativity. In this workshop we are organizing all activity based on science to create curiosity and interest in science.

With all equipments, laboratory, library, puzzles and models in science center, we teach science and math through fun ways that not only excite children but also actively engage them with science and technology. 

 

Teacher Orientation Workshop  (Science & Maths)

Teachers' Training Programme envisages opportunity for exposure of Teachers' to tools, raw materials and techniques as well as ideas for developing low cost teaching-aids with ultimate goal of build your own laboratory. Teachers are encouraged to use low-cost teaching aids to supplement their lecture in the class room. In-service & pre-service teachers' training programs have added a new dimension to the teaching-learning methodology.
