Our Open House, is an invigorating time for Team Imagin8ors, filled with anticipation of meeting some new tinkerers and welcoming back the older ones. For animated conversations, stimulating idea exchanges, some fearless tinkering and learning simply for the joy of it.
We were ready to lay down the canvases, for the children to pour a little bit of themselves on. The loaded materials table beckoned the maker in all. Softly it whispered:”Come lets tinker!!” This month our treasure trove consisted of three exciting experiences for the children to explore- paper speaker, wind table and dream catching lamp.
- Paper Speaker
Children created paper speakers and activated it using copper tape loops and Neodymium magnets. Lo and behold!! they could send audio signals through them! The more the number of loops, the louder the speaker! The children were exhilarated manipulating the sound levels, always preferring the rather higher notes.
- Wind Table
The children got a crash course in basic Physics as they built a table that could launch objects when placed on it. They learned how to harness the kinetic wind energy using various materials. Their eyes lit up with delight as they wielded the power to swish, sway or float with the wind.
- Dream Catching Lamp
The children and parents got messy together with clay, paper, neon paint, and glow in the dark glitter. Creativity flowed seamlessly as they dabbled with different materials to create their own unique lamp
Oh! The energy levels were through the roof. It sure has got us charged and our creative juices flowing. How about you? Was it just as stimulating? We hope the journey you embarked on with us will continue back home. Do come back again to inspire us with your energy and bright ideas. See you next month.
