Our girls participated in the Mahattattva Boot Camp Workshop on Design Thinking and STEAM at Mayo College Ajmer from 20th April to 21st April 2019. The students attended several sessions over a period of two days. On the first day there was a workshop on Design Thinking by Mike Knowles. The objective of this session was to help students think beyond the obvious and keep them abreast of what will be relevant in the future. The girls attended next session on LEGO Robotics where they built working models using unique combination of LEGO bricks and easy to use coding software. The next session was on Mind Box 3D Design. Students and teachers worked on 3D virtual space and created 3D designs using Maya 2014 software. Also, a session was organised by the Apple team to have a hands on experience of APPs that are used in classroom teaching.
second day, the students had three session. The Go Google workshop helped them
develop a story board to make story books for students of classes 4,5 and 6.
Picture Paathshala session was unique in its way, where Design Thinking was
used in the process of making a film. In the last session on Thinkering the
students understood the basic of electronics- circuits and their components.
It was an enriching and thought-provoking
experience for the girls. They gained clarity on creativity and futuristic technology.
