Logical Thinking

This logical thinking workshop will support children in helping them to learn to use reasoning consistently to conclude and/or find an answer to a problem.  One of the essential mathematical and scientific problem-solving skills that we want to help children to develop is that of logical thinking: ‘if this true {then this}; else {then that}. 

The simple definition is of logical thinking is “think in steps”. The workshop will teach kids taking an idea/problem/challenge, considering the facts (data) and develop a logical chain process to find the solution and/or conclude. 

How We Teach:

We have developed a project based logical thinking program by using audio-visual stimulation, hands-on science experiments, electronics circuit building with various sensors and programming/coding. We use Arduino, Raspberry Pi, MIT Media Lab Scratch and/or similar open-source platform and software.

Also, Logical thinking workshop will provide a platform to learn basic low voltage electronics, using various sensors (temperature, light, distance, etc.,), lights, solar energy and motor, and write computer code to develop automated system.
