In a delightful exploration of practical learning, Year Group 4 students at Valistus International School engaged in crafting individual windmills using simple materials – paper, straws, and thumb pins. The prospect of creating a windmill from paper sparked excitement and curiosity among the learners. As they observed a demonstration outlining the straightforward steps for their project, a collective sigh of relief echoed through the classroom. The joyous atmosphere became apparent as their smiles radiated happiness while meticulously crafting their windmills.
Later in the session, Mr. Manas, our esteemed STEM instructor, showcased the application of the same concept using a motor to rotate a plastic windmill. This demonstration illustrated the integration of electric energy into the process. Importantly, this engaging exploration of energy conversion seamlessly blended the realms of Art and Technology, underscoring the interdisciplinary approach at our school.
The integration of this practical demonstration not only enthralled the students but also provided a tangible link between theoretical concepts and real-world applications.
