Experimental Hands-on Engineering Sciences and Math Workshop
In today's competitive and fast-paced world, we don’t get enough time to explore. Another aspect of contemporary education is a lot of focus on theoretical concepts. We may prove theorems on equilateral triangles but folding one with simple A4 paper, and then converting it to the largest possible equilateral triangle unravels a lots of mathematical mysteries and cover fundamental concepts.
In this workshop the magic of hands-on science and math was explored:
- Enigma Machine, which resulted in the invention of the first computer in 2nd world war.
- Made in-house and the only machine in India, it is a beautiful amalgamation of Electronics, Maths, Computer Science and Mechanics.
- Robotic Arm which can do Aarti.
- Real hydraulic excavator using syringes and valves.
- Car which draws various mathematical shapes (sine wave, triangular wave, cycloid etc).
- Sherlock's Holmes mystery to find the direction of cycle by looking at the tracks using calculus.
- Sprinkler from the straw and figure out at what angles does water go the farthest.
- Levitate the pen in the air and find out the forces acting on it which make it levitate.
- Four real reasons (yes four reasons) behind our days and nights on earth and moon.
