Educating a child is easy when we look at it from a slightly different perspective. To make children learn, you just have to increase their curiosity.
“Our aim is to help children learn the right way, using activities that help relate science and engineering to real life. By looking at the experiments, they will naturally get curious and ask questions; we will then answer it like we are revealing a magic trick. When the children get the answer which is asked with the thirst of curiosity, it will stay forever. We would be doing around 10 to 15 experiments,” says Ashok Kumar, the operations manager of LMES.
Let’s Make Engineering Simple, started as a video tube series, is now the first Edu-Tech Non-profitable foundation in India. So far, the team has organised Big Bang workshops at two government schools — Government Higher Secondary School, Okkiyam, Thoraipakkam and Government Higher Secondary School, Thiruvanchery. To reach more students in the State, the team is raising funds through Milaap.
“The Big Bang Workshop is more important than just acquiring knowledge. Right now, children are taking education as a burden and we hope our workshops would help them explore a whole new perspective of education. This small effort can bring changes in the future more than we can possibly imagine,” adds Ashok.
