Bamboo and Learning
Submitted by aditi on 16 January, 2016 - 13:06
Imagine a learning community for children (and adults) where there is no curriculum - because we believe that children can decide what they want to learn, how much they want to learn. So children effectively choose what they want to do or learn from whatever is worth doing or learning in this world.
Journey of making of DOME is no different....we did not know how to work with Bambaoo...so when it came to making our next space for sessions, Bamboo became our choice :). Imagine aarohi which does not make the learning easy. Children like it challenging.
First learning was how to identify from where does one get Bamboo
Then how to cut
Then how to transfer
then How to treat
the how to use
and how to build
One trip to Sapana Ranch (near Pune) gave us idea about Bamboo and its structures
Meeting and learning from people around - we learned about Bamboo cutting and transferring
Research and interactions with various people allowed to lear about how to treat bamboo
Treating them actually allowed to us to fall in love with Bamboo
One interim structure of Geo dome was made to understand the structure of dome
"Go slow Aarohi Ahead"....the project is going on since last one year, we are still making base structure.
Imagine Aarohi, a life education, where learning happens because children want to learn from their life - for their life.
Imagine aarohi which does not make the learning easy. Children like it challenging.
