Small Science at Gyankriti

Dear parent,

We are delighted to share that drawings and activities of our Grade1 2017-2018 class have been featured on the Small Science website. Please read the article: http://smallscience.hbcse.tifr.res.in/me-and-my-family/

Small Science is a series of innovative primary science books developed by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research. The Centre carries out research and development in mathematics, science and technology education at the school level. It is the country's nodal centre for Olympiads in mathematics and science.

Small Science builds on the natural curiosity of young children. Moving away from rote learning, Small Science develops skills of systematic observation, analysis and articulation. The curriculum helps children in developing:

  • skills of verbal and non-verbal expression through discussion, writing, drawing and acting,
  • design, mathematical, analytical and problem-solving abilities,
  • independent thinking and creativity and,
  • a sound basis for later abstractions in science.
