Creativity is not only related to painters, singers and play-writers; but it can be in the field of science as well. Creativity in science can be a new idea that has value in solving a problem, or an object that is new or useful. Composing a piece of music that's pleasing to the ear or painting a mural on a city street for pedestrians to admire. Or it can mean dreaming up a solution to a challenge encountered in the lab.
We conduct some Creative Science Sessions (at least once in a month for our classroom students) for Grade 3 to Grade 9 students in order to support their creative ideas and also to inspire them to think creatively.
Creative science sessions are designed in one of the following ways,-
With the frequent creative science sessions, students may become scientifically more aware about their day to day activities. They may start having out of box thinking which would help them to be different than masses and become successful in the competitive world.

Our students learn science by 'Doing' and not by just reading or writing. WE have fully equipped laboratory and every student experiences science by doing it individually. They maintain documentation of each experiment throughout the year and they apply this experience while learning theory of the concept
We would like child to explore and understand basic concepts of science.
"Doing' science sessions are designed in one of the following ways,
Students permanently remember the scientific concepts; once they 'DO' it! And not only they remember but also they become able to apply it in day to day life for finding better solutions to the problems.
Our young students not only perform experiments, but they also carry on some 'research project'. They identify some problem in day to day life and try to solve the problem by doing research. They themselves decide the methodology to solve the problem and also they work on its viability, statistics, economy and presentation.
