The programme aims to provide an online platform to teachers as well as students and their parents, to make STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) learning more engaging by breaking subject boundaries to create a sense of wonder from everyday life.
The first one-hour live session was held on August 16, 2020, from 4 to 5 pm, on the theme of ‘Adventures of A4 Paper’ that creatively explained topics like the distance between Earth and Moon, ratio and proportion, similar triangles, length and volume, octagon, and so on, by using a simple A4 size paper sheet. Teachers, students and many other participants from across the country enthusiastically participated in this session that received about 1,20,000 live views and more than 1,50,000 views in a single day.
Sharing his feedback,
one of the participating teachers,
wrote in the comments, “This session was an eye-opener. Complacency had set in with the routine of teaching. Thank you for reminding us the depth of Mathematics which was taken for granted and forgotten. I was really in need of this content that you have worked so hard to create. Thank you for this mental boost.”
Another school head, Ms Suvarna Kuppa
wrote, “Episode 1 left us asking for more and more. My teachers shared a few of the inputs with students during the online sessions, and we found that the student participation rate had risen tremendously. We are eagerly waiting for episode 2 on ‘Finding your lung capacity’.”
