The very first trip was to IISc’s Open Day in 2017. Students of 10th grade were really thrilled to see how a real-life microscope worked. They were fascinated with how different experiments were conducted and the real-time results. It was overall, a great first trip out for them and our volunteers!
During the following year, we took children to Cubbon Park and Vidhana Soudha where they had a chance to be part of the Namma Bengaluru Habba celebrations. Their exposure to a Drums Circle with actor Vasundhara’s troupe was unique and a whole lot of fun! They also had an opportunity to travel by the Metro and to visit Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium. The joy in each of their faces was immensely satisfying for our volunteers.
The same children had another fun trip out to the HAL Aerospace Museum where they were exposed to the technology used for flying aircraft. Information about space flight and various types of helicopters used were also assimilated.
Vidyadhaara Foundation would like to ensure that children get a holistic approach to education. And our field trips will hopefully help them achieve that. In 2019, we plan to take children out to a Radio Station or to a Factory Floor.
