Scientific Thinking for Kids
Science is intriguing, interesting and also a lot of fun! So, naturally figuring how science works can be quite exciting for kids. In this program by Evolvingminds, kids will find joy in discovering concepts and ideas rather than having things explained to them! Thought-provoking questions, working with their ideas and exploring science will lead them towards building a working model and try their hands at something new.
The program will also teach them how to approach an abstract problem, develop a solution, and make it a reality which in turn will help build confidence, critical thinking and skills that foster growth and a positive mindset. The summer program introduces kids to the basic sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) and trains them on how science works! The program is conducted online and interested participants can also take up physical classroom sessions. The material is delivered to home so that kids can perform the tasks themselves.
