Learning through Designing – Bus Project


Someone has agreed to give old bus to Aarohi. We began with what and how to use this bus (bus has still not arrived). Last two weeks, some kids have been working on ‘bus designing’.

Initially it was difficult for some to visualize the arrangements of racks inside for arranging books (library). They know multiplication, they know how to measure…but now to apply both was new for many of them. With persistence could finally get the basic idea of multiplication application. We used scale drawing using graph book and do detailed calculations (WIP).

One child shared “In bus designing i discovered how to use a graph book and design like an engineer because in a graph book one small box is one feet it was challenging to make the design and it took lot of effort”.

We continue to work on bus design mixing visuals and logical skills – work in progress.
