Butterfly Fields, run by IIT and IIM grads, is organizing a summer camp for children of age 6 years and above, from 5th May to 17th May, in Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, at Jubilee Hills. The activities include the following experiments that the kids will be made to perform:
Shoot A Reel
Experiments on the process of converting potential energy into kinetic energy: elasticity, conservation/transformation of energy, projectile spring balance, Hooke's law, least count of scales, mass vs. weight
Introduction to electromagnetism: vibrating membranes, how speakers work, voice boxes, DC motors
Experiments on Newton's third law, Boyle's balloon and Boyle's law, in the preparation of a jet car by using some tools
Pull Back Car
Conservation of energy, linear motion, circular motion, elasticity, steam boat, Newton's third law, specific heat capacity of substances
Conversion between different forms of motion: crankshaft, turbines, how electricity is generated
About logistics: streamlined bodies and their shapes, bridges, structures that can carry weight
Electronic configuration of different elements, valency, flywheel, inertia of motion
About camera working process and lens: virtual/real images, power of lenses, Archimedes screw, centrifugal force, its application in planetary motion
About atmospheric pressure: measurement of pressure, rocket launcher, pressure, thrust, projectile, valves
Measurement of temperature, bellows pump, pressure difference
Measuring angles, similarity of triangles, pin-hole camera, virtual/real images, power of lens, inverted/erect images
Make your Scale
Preparation of scale with paper: rational, irrational numbers, inter-conversion between scales
The fee for this summer camp is Rs. 2,000, and the timings are 8:30am to 12:30pm.
Butterfly Fields was founded by IIM graduates Sharatchandra and Praveen, in 2005. They strongly feel that the career choice of an individual should be driven by passions and interests which are intrinsic to him rather than by any external influence. The organization strives towards imbibing into the future generations a sense of confidence which comes through self-realization so that they make their choices undeterred by the external forces.
