URBAN SCHOOL PROGRAMS
Our Urban School programs are designed to bring innovative science events to your students. Given how teachers are already so busy with teaching the core cirriculum, they do not have the time to create many new science events with children, and that is where we step in.
We at Curiouscity have desgined several programs to bring events to your school in the form of half day hands on and interactive Science Fairs, or shorter one hour lecture demonstrations that bring about a WOW factor in learning about new topics. We also have created Day trips to sites around the city from Waste Management programs to Exploring the water bodies in our cities. Our field trips take students on short (2 or 3 day) or long (10 day) science related trips which include astronomy to field sciences – from Masanagudi to the Galapagos islands.
We have also created teacher training programs using science based examples on taking parts of the syllabus and creating a hands on learning approach to the same.
GALAPAGOS FIELD TRIP
Students (open to students of grades 8 to 12) will examine why these islands are so special – a living example of Evolution in Progress from which Darwin came up with his theory of Natural Selection. Why these islands have the perfect set of conditions to allow Evolution to happen so rapidly creating many Endemic Species (those seen nowhere else on Earth). What it takes to conserve such a delicate landscape and the role and affect of humans therein. History, Geology, Ecology, Evolution, and the Economics and impact of Eco Tourism will also be a large part of the learning on this trip this trip.
We will be working with IOI (Intercultural Outreach Initiative) in America and their counterparts in the Galapagos. Students will be expected to stay with local families on the island of Isabella and work with the science Eco-conservation program every day.
This will give the children great exposure to a different culture through the local people, communicating in Spanish, eating the local cuisine and traveling independently.
