Simulation Workshop for Grades VIII and IGCSE-1

Students of grades VIII & IGCSE-1 of Witty International School got the opportunity to attend the Simulation Workshop for International Schools conducted by Mr. Tim Lewis, Head of Science from the EF Academy of Oxford (U.K) in the Multipurpose hall at Witty World, Bangur Nagar, Goregaon (W), Mumbai on Saturday, 15th of February, 2014. The Workshop was conducted in two batches. The first one starting at 8:15 am to 10:15 am and the second batch from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Mr. Tim Lewis guided the students into the world of critical thinking which led them into reflective writing and pushed them towards deducing their idea of Theory of knowledge. This thought process could only work if the students possessed a unique approach to learning science.  The students were mesmerized, enthralled and enlightened by the presentation and the highly interactive session. A small experiment using water and Eno helped the students to formulate their theory based on knowledge and practical evidence.
This guided interactive session helped in not only boosting the confidence of the students but also making them prone to critical thinking which in turn has steered them into using their thought process towards reflecting on their approach in construing the theory of the experiment based on Hypothesis. It was definitely a highly rewarding session for the students as it has garnered into them the fire of learning using their own unique approach. Students and the faculty thanked Mr. Tim Lewis in volumes as his guiding ability was par excellence. It was truly and thoroughly an enriching learning and interactive experience.
