NAVI MUMBAI: There is good news for young scientists in the city as science club Tech Shiksha will be conducting classes in Nerul and Sanpada from next week.
After Vashi, Kharghar and the recently started branch at the NRI Complex in Seawoods, the club is all set to groom science enthusiasts in Nerul and Sanpada as well.
While t he Ner ul centre will conduct science cl ub sessions every Wednesday at the Language Club, Nerul, between 5pm and 7pm, classes in Sanpada will held at the Anurag Educational Institute from 4pm to 6 pm, eve r y Wednesday. 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. After that they will move to level 2, which is the electronics club. Students from Class 8 can join level 3 directly,” said Amit Modi, founding member of the club.
The science club will also start its second electronics club at the Vashi centre. A similar club in Kharghar had received tremendous response from students who built differ ent circuits for light alarms, a burglary alarm and LEDs.
“The electronics club is a great platform for children to learn about resistors, diodes, LED, transistor and capacitors. Children will also learn to build circuits using these electronic components,” he said.
The main motive of the club is to get children to interact with each other, and to help clear their concepts in science in a systematic way. The club will also organise regular exhibitions to keep children engaged and to encourage them to create their own gadgets
