Scientific acumen is developed only through experimentation and not by following procedures or preparing for examinations.
Learning is most successful when it is self-directed, and experiential. There is no place for such things in our current schools and colleges; they are mere exam preparation centres.
Consider Beyond 8 Science-Around as your friendly neighborhood science experience centers where your child can come in to learn the sciences experientially
Science-Around aims to anchor interests and pursuits of young learners in the sciences and enables them to develop the attitudes, knowledge and skills required to thrive in the 21st century.
Our centers will complement schooling with science activities that bridge the gap between theory from curricula and genuine learning.
Young learners will have opportunities to get their hands dirty, demonstrate intellectual courage, and challenge conventional ideas that box them into preset mindsets.
We are currently in the phase of designing our centres and our first centre is likely open in Chennai, around January 2021.
WHAT IT IS:
It is a physical science centre that offers science activities for children above the age of 14. Science-Around also offers mobile exhibits that will travel to your own communities and schools to enable learning everywhere.
WHAT IT IS NOT:
It is not an exam preparation centre than prepares you for entrance exams or helps you master a curriculum. pythagoras was not given the mandate to prove the earth was round. He went against conventional wisdom to find this out for himself. It is not a replacement for school practicals. If you feel aggrieved by schooling, you may wish to consider our high-school instead.
