Workshop: STEM does not mean scary coding !! - Introducing fun and non-intimidating STEM for lower primary students, without the nightmare for the teachers.
STEM is inevitably an important part of modern day science curriculum. While Science is not taught in lower primary, many schools and kindergartens have pushed for STEM-based lessons to be introduced to their young learners.
Unfortunately, STEM is often linked to robotics and coding. This is not just over-whelming for the pupils but also intimidating and challenging for the teachers.
The workshop is about the various STEM initiatives, products, and lesson plans that teachers can adopt to introduce STEM-based activities to their young learners. There are many things that they can do to make it engaging, fun and relevant.

Workshop: Gifted and Science Olympiad education
About PhysiCo & ChemiCo
Our International Science Competitions, PhysiCo and ChemiCo, aims to provide a unique competitive platform to identify and reward young geniuses and create a talent pool for the future academic advancements. These Olympiads are designed not only to test the basic knowledge learnt in school but also to stimulate analytical and critical thinking ability and increase problem solving skills of a student. Hence, PhysiCo and ChemiCo are not just another Olympiad examination but they motivate students to strive for academic excellence and help bring out the best in a student. All the participants who take ChemiCo and PhysiCo are provided with individualized and detailed assessment reports to support their targeted learning. It helps teacher monitor student’s understanding of the science topics, level of knowledge and power of reasoning.
Benefits of Olympiad spirit
Scoring high in PhysiCo and ChemiCo requires more than just knowledge of the concepts. Students are tested on their ability to use time efficiently and strategize on tackling the questions in the right order, from the easiest to the most difficult. This cultivates strategic and analytical thinking in a student which is useful in any competitive examinations.
Most of the Olympiad questions are non-routine and demands higher order thinking skills. Only the students with the qualities of a curious mind and independent learning can achieve best results. ChemiCo and PhysiCo promotes to create this kind of an Olympiad environment in which the spirit of exploring prevails.
Objectives of ChemiCo & PhysiCo
A good rank in the Olympiads develop a sense of confidence in the students and help parents identify the talent of a student and thus contributes to the overall development. ChemiCo and PhysiCo aims to recognize and reward high-achieving students and provide support towards academic excellence. For the students who aspire to be scientists, there is a higher prospect of success in university with strong science background. Therefore, through these Olympiads we aim to establish the ground for future scientists by inculcating the habit of facing and overcoming challenging problems and raising interest in Science.

Workshop: Science of water
“Water is the driving force of all nature” - Leonardo da Vinci
Water is essential for the survival of living things. Although about 70% of Earth’s surface is covered by water, but how much do we know about the quality of the water around us?
In this workshop, we will explore the science behind water quality and the various instruments for efficient and effective measurement for various experimental needs.
The topics we will cover in this workshop are as follows:
1) pH – Acidic vs Alkaline. What does this really mean?
2) Conductivity – Saltiness. How to measure that?
3) Dissolved Oxygen – An indicator of water pollution
4) Ion selective electrodes – Quick and efficient technique for specific ion concentration measurement
5) Turbidity – Its role in water quality measurement
6) Introduction of the relevant instruments for measurement
7) New Product Launch: Thermo Orion STAR T900 series Titrator
