CLI,IITGn has collaborated with AMC( Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation) to make middle school ( Classes 6-8) science and math hands-on ,conceptual and joyous. The project Spark is meant to ignite the curiosity of children by exposing them to a plethora of low cost science and mathematics toys and activities which can be made using everyday materials and inspire them in STEM.
The program has four components
Facilitators from IITGn visiting AMC schools every TFFuesday and Thursday
Children from AMC schools visiting IITGn every Wednesday in batch 100
Mentoring the school teachers to form science club
Organizing a grand makerfest on 28th Feb 2018
How you can be involved in this initiative?
Facilitate Wed sessions
If you have something to share with children, it will be awesome if you could facilitate the Wednesday Session. Generally we have the session at Block 2/202 | Time: 9am to 11:30 am , do drop by in-case if you just want to observe
Mentor School Science Club
We need to form a core team who will be working with small group of teachers and students and help them with the process of formation and smooth running of the club. This would involve occasional visit to schools and majorly tele mentoring.
Organize Makerfest on 28 Feb 2018
Be part of core team to organize the makerfest. We are planning to organize an exhibition for the children on 28th Feb 2018( Science Day) at IITGn and we need a team to anchor this event.
