We see electronic everyday
Use them everyday
They are part of life
But how much are we close to them?
How much do we know them?
Are they alien to us?
How about exploring
Seeing inside outside
How they flow
How they glow?
How they work?
How do they look?
Just one session to explore circuits, tools and gadgets!

One fine morning
We got together to cut grass
But why Grass
Because it was too long
And we needed for mulching
Then why we?
Why not “get it done”
Then how do we know how does grass feels?
How do we know gras feel soft and rough?
How do we know how much pressure to put to take it out?
How do we know that “we can do”?
How do we know the feel of standing in the grass?

Making a meal is unknown process - often it reaches to our kids plate and then they just need to consume it. “Make your own breakfast”, was the announcement and the platter was displayed with choices - all we needed to do was to make breakfast for our own breakfast”.
And that’s all! Rest is all your imagination

We buy things in our daily life
We are also choosy about what we buy and why
Ever wondered what goes in making of any product?

Scientific thinking is not limited to science and knowledge and it's beautiful!
Scientific thinking is not limited to studying to science (physics, chemistry and biology)
Scientific thinking is also not limited to me being “good or bad” in science.
Scientific thinking is a process, which is not about knowledge but about a skill, a way to think.
Stimulation in the beginning of the week with wondering, pondering, playing with balloons..

"Yummy puri", said some.
Make your own Puri and wonder
But why my Puri puffed up?
Why my this Puri didn't puffed up?
Why some puffed up, some don't?
Why some are round some not?
Hot oil or warm oil?
Both sides or one side?

“Wow, Good Job, Keep it up, I am proud of you, beautiful, so nice…” these are some of the exclamation we offer to our kids to keep them going (encouraging). But is there something beyond “praising”?

Repairs are part of Aarohi curriculum. When multiple people use resources, the wear and tear is natural - sometimes things break with usage, sometimes with misuses. Whatever is the case, repair brings an opportunity to understand our resources and connection with the tools.

Can a campus teach? Water walk at Aarohi is nothing but understanding water and sanitation system at Aarohi. Where does the water comes to the campus and where does it goes? Water at the campus comes from the bore well and goes back to the ground through plants - in the process it travels to our tank, to our toilets, to our bathrooms, to our kitchen washing, to our water treatment system ... and then to our kitchen garden and then to the ground back and the cycle starts.
