Th­ese ses­sions are aimed at stu­dents from Class 6 to Class 9.

“We have al­ready en­gaged with chil­dren in sev­eral nodes of the city, but we want to cover the en­tire city. Stu­dents can join level one which fo­cuses on dif­fer­ent as­pects of sci­ence from ba­sic physics, ma­chines, elec­tro­mag­netism, as­tron­omy, aero mod­el­ing, en­gines, the chem­istry around us, en­ergy and en­vi­ron­ment and biology.
