Hands-on Learning

The Hands-on Learning Project

Since April 2022, I have been heading a team of extremely talented content creators and product designers to create highly immersive, budget friendly, STEM learning kits. These have been used and loved by 60,000 kids across the country till date! Here's a little sample of the videos I made for training both the students and the teachers using our physical manipulatives.

What do sound waves looks like?

An in-class video for the students , where we explain the difference between light waves and sound waves, using a common children's toy - the SLINKY!

Learn probability, via a stolen painting mystery!

A Cluedo inspired board game designed for students of grades 9 & 10.  A painting has been stolen! And the students need to identify the criminal, the vehicle and the hiding spot within 45 minutes, using only one ally - probability! 

What does a fuse do?

Don't be fooled by this tiny, unassuming device. When it comes to the fuse, size isn't everything.

By melting at just the right temperature, the fuse saves us from dangerous current surges. How? Let's find out in this DIY! 

Symbol Tumble: The Bohr's Model Game!

Let's revise our knowledge of atomic symbols and terms like Mass Number, Atomic Number and charge on an atom through this rapid fire symbol game!

Make as many correct models as you can on the board and win your team points! 

Algebra: Find the unknowns!

A shipment of candies has arrived, labelled by weight. But, some of the labels have gotten smudged. 

Can you figure out the unknown weights using just a beam balance and some simple algebra?

It moves! Magnetic effects of current

How are current and magnetism connected? Apart from lighting a bulb or charging our laptops what else can current do? 

Can it act like a magnet? Let's find out in this fun DIY!

Toto the 'magnetic' frog!

Let's explore the effect of increasing the number of coils in an electromagnet via a fun experiment. 

Watch toto eat more 'insects' as he grows from a tadpole to a froglet to an adult frog!

Can liquids be conductors too?

We know solids can be good and bad conductors. Can liquids also conduct electricity? 

Let's find out with a tester circuit, a buzzer and 3 sample liquids - distilled water, tap water and milk! (The result might surprise you!)

Changing conductivities!

Can you turn a poorly conducting liquid, e.g. distilled water, into a good conductor? 

Absolutely! Simply add some ions into it. How?

Let's find out in this fun DIY!

Electroplating : Chemical effects of electric current

What is electroplating? How does it work? Where is it used?

Let's find out via this fun demonstration, where we coat a layer of copper onto a strip of steel!
