Whats in a Computer? Workshop by Dad & Dude

Children love computers; they love it more when they are told to rip it open!  That’s exactly what Mahendran and Raghavan of Dad & Dude did on Saturday,  4th March 2017.  Students of 7th grade had a field day learning through a practical approach. There was music too. Raghavan’s wife sang and also played the violin solo to entertain our children. A good way to introduce children to the world of computers, isn’t it?

The event started with an introductory talk by Keerthi introducing celestial sphere to the audience and how to use sky charts. Children got to learn about the commonly observed objects in the sky and the difference between eclipse and moon-days. He also explained how a telescope works and the difference between refraction and reflective types. Team PRAYAS  who organized the event had also arranged chocolates as prizes for those giving correct answers.

While children got busy viewing 3-D sky objects Keerthi and his team set up his telescope to view Venus before its descent.  It was a sight to watch the crescent Venus through the telescope. A group of children were kept engaged with binoculars.   Everyone enjoyed viewing Mars and the craters on the crescent moon. The Tamarind Rice Dinner provided by Mr. Anantharaman added to the joy of the occasion.
