Biology/Chemistry : In the last two weeks, we were introduced to Global context, Key concepts and Related concepts to learn how learning takes place in context.

Design and Technology Ms.Leepakshi Julka The first class of product design started with an icebreaker design challenge, wherein the students were divided into two different teams and were asked to make a challenging maze for  the opponent team with empty juice cartons, old books and cardboard rolls. Both the teams developed their creativity, communication and social skills through this activity.  In the next design challenge, students had to design, create and test a bridge using only one sheet of paper. This was followed by a discussion on their understanding of the word “design”. They were shown a few videos on product design and were asked to reflect on how design is a powerful tool to solve problems.  Students also had a discussion about how common products that they use extensively in their lives have evolved. They observed and appreciated the clever design features that have been added to solve user problems.
