Electronic Workshop @ magichive

Grateful to Sundar, Pratap and Ranjit for spending time with the children and giving them the opportunity to explore electronics. Children got to use multimeter and understand connectivity.
About the team who conducted the workshop:
We are a team of engineers who run STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) land – that are rural STEM centres in two outreach schools of Auroville – Udavi School and Isai Ambalam School. Both schools aspire towards holistic development of the child and the managements are progressive. The children attending come from villages surrounding Auroville.
At STEM land children learn Mathematics, Electronics, 3D Printing, Programming (in Scratch, Alice, Geogebra), Mindstorms (Robotics) and play strategic games that enhance logical thinking. The children take responsibility of their learning and plan their goals each week related to their curriculum and beyond it. This self-directed learning is based on Sri Aurobindo’s first True principle of education “Nothing can be taught”. They create projects that represent their mastery over concepts they learn and can share following constructionism. They and work individually, in pairs or peer groups and ask for support from facilitators when they need it. With younger children we work on real life projects that impact their surroundings.

Theatre Workshop (Summer Program)

Theatre Workshop came to an end with children having a performance which showcased what they had learnt to the parents. It was fun and all of us enjoyed every bit of it. Thank you children.. It was a pleasure. Thank you to parents for the support and encouragement. Thank you to Nandhini for the pic.

Panel discussion @ IIM(B)

Grateful to have got the opportunity to be part of a panel discussion on parenting (Sat musings) @IIM (B). Sharing and learning of different perspectives was enriching.

Emotional workshop (summer program )

Emotional awareness workshop came to an end, hoping it is the beginning of the process for the children. Thank you, Latha Senthilnathan for facilitating the workshop and thanks to all parents who were willing and open to let their children participate in the workshop. Big thank you to the children for being enthusiastic participants 😊

Workshop on Non Violent communication

Can we accept ourselves and still keep working with self? Would changing the words we use change the space we are coming from? How would it be for us if we come from space of compassion? How willing are we to take responsibility for the choices we make? These questions and many more were explored in our workshop on compassionate communication. Gratitude to all the participants as their willingness to share their personal stories enriched each one of us and brought out the reality that all of us are same.
Thank you 🙏
