Summer Fun at the Planetarium

The previous post was about ‘The Garden of Music‘ event taking place in Bangalore. To keep your young ones busy this summer, you can also let them experience the joy of reading by sending them to some of the book nooks in Bangalore. Or send them across to the Jawaharal Nehru Planetarium.

This summer, the planetarium is hosting several events throughout the month of April and May. Some of the programmes we found interesting are:
a) Tiny-Tots Programme:
This is a ten day science camp for students of classes III to V, that includes simple science demonstrations, model making, origami and field trips. The activities are moderated through discussions by the resource persons. The second batch of the programme commences on April 15 and ends on April 28.

The first batch commences on April 15 and ends on April 28.
