Please note that this is a kid-only camp.



Eligibility: Class IV & above



We use electricity every day and almost every minute of the day. It is important that we understand what it is and how it behaves. In this camp, we will explore the physics and engineering aspect of electricity and electrical systems. The camp includes a tour of theYS science Centre, a science show, workshop and a DIY section where each participant builds a table lamp and takes it home!



Theme: Electricity, Home Wiring, DIY - build a table lamp stand using PVC.





DIY Project:



Each participant will be building a table lamp stand.

We will use PVC and the kids will be trained in the necessary skills

Electrical wiring and crafting with PVC.

All materials will be provided as a kit.

What is sound?

Do you know how sound is created?

Can you speak on the moon?

Do explosions in outer space cause loud noise?

Did you know human ears are capable of hearing only a certain range of frequencies?

What is the Frequency of sound?

What is Amplitude?

What is the treble and bass as seen on speakers?

What is the difference between a sound wave, a radio wave and a water wave?


Other description

Sounds interesting? Do you have the same questions? then join our workshop to learn the answers and do experiments related to sound. We will be demonstrating fun experiments help you understand the basics of acoustics.



Do you want to be a sound engineer? This could be your first solid step in that journey.

his is a course that takes a practical approach to develop critical thinking. The aim is to make the participants appreciate criticism and analysis, provide tools to incorporate such methods to problem-solving and become better thinkers. This course also serves as a training for Olympiads and Talent Search Exams. All necessary worksheets and materials will be provided. Group activities and games will demand the application of theory to real-life problems.



This is a 4-hour course delivered over two days.



Workbook containing bonus problems and explanations will be provided.
