We buy things in our daily life
We are also choosy about what we buy and why
Ever wondered what goes in making of any product?

Scientific thinking is not limited to science and knowledge and it's beautiful!
Scientific thinking is not limited to studying to science (physics, chemistry and biology)
Scientific thinking is also not limited to me being “good or bad” in science.
Scientific thinking is a process, which is not about knowledge but about a skill, a way to think.
Stimulation in the beginning of the week with wondering, pondering, playing with balloons..

After the session on Understanding Sexuality and Gender, we were curious to interact with the LGBTQIA+ community, listen from them their life experiences and perspectives. Personally I also felt an interaction was important because till now the only interaction has been through movies or seeing them begging on streets or trains. Listening to their perspective would give us a realization that they are also humans just like us with same emotions, needs and passions.
We did a online video call with two people who identify themselves as part of the Queer community.

“Wow, Good Job, Keep it up, I am proud of you, beautiful, so nice…” these are some of the exclamation we offer to our kids to keep them going (encouraging). But is there something beyond “praising”?

Repairs are part of Aarohi curriculum. When multiple people use resources, the wear and tear is natural - sometimes things break with usage, sometimes with misuses. Whatever is the case, repair brings an opportunity to understand our resources and connection with the tools.

Can a campus teach? Water walk at Aarohi is nothing but understanding water and sanitation system at Aarohi. Where does the water comes to the campus and where does it goes? Water at the campus comes from the bore well and goes back to the ground through plants - in the process it travels to our tank, to our toilets, to our bathrooms, to our kitchen washing, to our water treatment system ... and then to our kitchen garden and then to the ground back and the cycle starts.

Often safety is looked from “fear” window or from a “rule” perspective. A session with Esha on personal safety threw some light on clear communication and the process of making safer decision. Esha works on personal safety with girls in Gujrat, the session brought an opportunity to make this topics even more open and sensitive.
