This booklet lists a few innovative experiments for learning science. Many of them I learnt from interesting children, people and books. The English title of this book LITTLE SCIENCE has been taken from the magazine SCIENCE AGE where most of these articles first appeared.

An attempt has been made in the book to show how some of modern junk (like tetra packs) can be recycled into joyous toys.

This booklet attempts to give a glimpse of some of the experiments and toys designed as part of the Hoshangabad Science Teaching Programme. Intensive use is made of things which are commonly available and with which the children are familiar. Many of the experiments were designed, often with the help of village children and teachers, in response to the dismal poverty existing in most village school.

Sting Games provides step-by-step instructions with illustrations for making diverse and interesting string figures. The fun-filled figures created by using strings of all sorts not only augment memory and imagination of young children but also enrich their hand-eye coordination.

Ten Little Fingers is a collation of innovative toys and science activities which the author has tried and tested in more than one thousand schools over the past twenty years. With detailed illustrations, each activity is clearly depicted. Children do not need fancy laboratories and expensive equipment for doing science activities. There is much, which can be done using throwaway things found at home. Only when children use ordinary things do they realise the relevance of science in everyday life.

Serious teachers have always raised such questions. These are legitimate concerns. With paucity of funds and poor infrastructure - how does one do justice to activity based science? There is enough evidence the world over to show that readymade kits gather dust. The models the children and teachers make themselves remain more enduring. There are amazing possibilities of doing creative science using simple, readily available materials.

Young children learn best from simple things. And naturally it is best for them to first understand those things that are around them in their daily lives. It is best for 2 or 3 children to work together on these activities so that they can share materials and help each other. Thus they begin to learn cooperation.

These activities need simple materials. This pullout is just a small sample of the possibilities of doing wonderful things.

Hello Educators, 

How are you doing? How is your online teaching going on? What kind of problems are you facing now?

We have started a social initiative to help and support School teachers, Educators, schools, college lectures to teach online during these global pandemic. 

So many teachers in India have adopted to teach online using live conferencing tools like Zoom, Google Meet, WebEx. Most of teacher, lecturers have learned to teach online using video conferencing tools. 

But there are so many cons of teaching and studying using video conferencing apps.

This site includes word search puzzles covering a variety of topics appropriate for primary grade, middle school and high school students, but many of the topics will be of interest to puzzle-engaged adults as well.

One must tune into what one’s natural inclinations and talents may be, and once aware, nurture them.
