Today is the National Science Day. It is celebrated in India to commemorate the discovery of the Raman effect by Indian physicist Chandrashekhara Venkata Raman on this day in 1928. Sir C V Raman won the Nobel Prize in 1930 for his contribution to science and Bharat Ratna in 1954.
Since morning, my mind has been going back to the stories of this genius scientist. His struggles, passion for science and his journey has been inspirational for all ages. Personally, I think I was fascinated by his curiosity, perseverance and love for science.
In school, many of us looked at science just as a subject to study and pass. While that approach worked for most of us and we did manage to get our degrees 😉 would you agree that we became less inquisitive as we grew?
Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could inculcate the concept of learning and exploration through play and make it fun rather than an obligation for the little ones! We found such a place in the heart of Bangalore called Girias Children Explorium and were awed by the design and the concept of this children’s museum.
The Explorium is a three storeyed building with six different sections with themes as Explore, Build, Invent, Splash, Create and Live. Each section comes with different exhibits and is capable to keep the young ones engaged for hours. Another unique thing about this place is that you can get involved actively with your kids in the whole experience.
We loved their tagline “Where Kids play to learn and Adults learn to play”. They also have a toy store and cafeteria at the top floor. Do check out their website for workshops, field trips and parties.
We had an amazing time there and would recommend this experience for families in Bangalore or travelling to Bangalore.
