Were you the backbencher who hated science in school? One who used to run away from the sight of beakers and batteries? Now, it’s time to change the boring definition of the subject and inculcate love of science among students.
Ambience Indian Science Festival 3.0, presented by Fever Entertainment, focuses on the practical side of science. It gives children a chance to experience the subject and its various branches in a unique format. With stage shows and hands-on workshops, the event is about experiential science and not textbook studies.
Targeted at children of the age group of 6-14 years, the event also has cosplaying workshops, where they can learn the science of making their favourite superhero costumes. Surya Sreenivasan, a cosplayer from Mumbai who is conducting the workshop, says, “Cosplaying is about costumes and role-playing. It incorporates the study of human body and an understanding of how the elements of a costume work.”
The event will give an opportunity to children to take part in activities like Bubble Mania, Slime Making and Forensic Lab. Various subjects like chemistry, astronomy and engineering will be explained through dramatic presentations. Experts from National Science Center will also be conducting shows.
Anurag Mehra, founder of Z Life Education, the content partner of the event, says, “We are celebrating the curiosity around and want children to believe that science can be cool.”
