This summer, keep your children engaged as they perform hands-on experiments and explore science concepts from the comfort of your home. As the world locks down – unprecedented in living memory – and children as well as parents are forced to stay indoors, what better than to get into the thick of things and learn some science in the bargain? While the world pins its hopes on its scientists to come up with a solution to the present crisis, you can do your bit by inculcating a sound scientific temper among the next generation. Come, join us for a summer of hands-on fun-filled science activities, conducted fully from the safety of your home!

About “unLAB"

We have researched and developed the “Tactile Activities” (TACtivities) that have been used and loved by more than 1 lakh students across the country as a part of their classroom curriculum. We provide unprocessed material in raw form to children. Children make before they start playing with the science models and experiments. Having made the TACtivities from scratch with their own hands, children develop a sense of ownership and feel empowered to make the models again. Most often, as children make and explore these TACtivities further, they tend to change a few variables (which may or may not have a functional impact), either consciously or subconsciously. This leads to exploration and learning, which happen in an organic manner, for each child.

Children are encouraged to make suggested variations, as well as innovations they come up with, and fill in an observation sheet to record their findings. A one-on-one discussion with a ThinkTac facilitator is then available, to guide the child through a path of self-discovery, connecting the dots to theory, reinforcing concepts and providing both anecdotes and real-life examples connected to the TACtivity and the underlying concept(s).

You may choose from a host of programmes we have on offer: CBSE and ICSE curriculum-aligned TACtivities for standards III-X, as well as a host of Theme-based programmes. You may choose 4, 6 or 10-TACtivity packages for your child. Look at our comprehensive list of Summer Offerings, and Sign Up Now!
