Fortunately, science is not just about high marks and entrance exams. Though the subject is associated with toppers, medicine and engineering, its breadth is so wide that most children are enthralled by it. If your child gets hooked to science, she could be studying marine life in the Maldives, doing research to discover new drugs, testing rockets and satellites, putting together a supercomputer, among a host of other exciting things.
If you would like to enjoy science once again (or for the first time), join your kids to discover its wonders.
Here are some ways to experience the fun of science.
1. Enrol them in science, robotics, nature and other clubs, both in and outside school.
2. Buy or borrow DIY books with interesting experiments and projects. Ditto electromagnetic kits and other science kits.
3. Log on to websites/portals which provide virtual science tours, videos, experiments and more.
