Science can be fun

Puttenahalli Lake played host to the first ever public science show, by children, on Sunday 15th Dec 2013.

The event was conducted by Merry Go Learn (an IIT/IIM alumni initiative), in association with Puttenahalli Neighbourhood Lake Improvement Trust (PNLIT). Students from Standards 1 to 8 who are attending sessions at Merry Go Learn, applied concepts of science and maths to perform interesting experiments, that left many in the audience, parents included, absolutely amazed.

The show included a quiz, a do it yourself stall with children making their own kaleidoscopes and an exciting treasure hunt. Apart from creating awareness through practical learning, the backdrop of Puttenahalli Lake provided the much needed environmental sensitivity that goes with making science so much fun.
