Why Learn Experimentation?

“Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious." -Stephen Hawking
Why is the Earth round and not square? Why do roots grow under the ground and not on top? How does salt disappear in water? Why does milk curdle? Our minds are filled with infinite questions; as we observe more, more questions crowd our minds.A scientific enquirer channelises this curiosity into action to explore and discover the world around them. As we learn more about the world around us, we understand how unique we are as a specious and how things we often take for granted have deep hidden meaning!

Program Description

Time to experiment! As a Scientist we will learn to be curious about scientific phenomena around us. We will get an opportunity to listen, observe, hypothesise, experiment and record their findings. We will carry out experiments and explore the science behind it. We aim to cover a broad range of scientific fields such as biology, physics and chemistry through exploratory play,experimentation, discovery, research and innovation!

Program Objectives

In this program, you will conduct experiments by understanding and applying the 5 steps of the scientific methodology:

  • Observe: Making an observation by using your sense of sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch.
