The parents seem to have understood the importance of educational aids if the growing number of visitors at educational stalls at ongoing educational fair is any indication.

Shravya Educational Aids (stall no. 216 and 217), Om Art Prints (stall no. 79-81) are some of the stalls that have showcased the educational aids pulling crowds in good numbers. The telescopes, microscopes, periscope, and kaleidoscope are a few scientific instruments that are dragging the attention of children.

The stall owners are giving demonstrations on each science model that is on display. They say that they are giving 35 per cent concession to government schools and 25 per cent to private schools.

The clocks working with infusion of copper and zinc metals in potato, tomato and other vegetables, innovative mathematical puzzles, do it yourself kits, play way toys, science projects for children in the group of 6, 8 years, educational CDs and DVDs, science puzzles, models, and charts are a few items that are available at these stalls. The modern teaching aids were prepared with a clear understanding the importance of giving children a true learning, appreciation and respect for natural world and it’s precious resources, they say.

“The scientific aids are useful to learn the things in a better way. In fact, the children learn the science, if they see it practically what has been written in the textbooks,” says Ch. Koteswara Rao, who brought his two kids to the book fair.

Concurring with his views, G. Chaya, a homemaker, says, “It is not just that a book that stimulates thoughts and creativity and scientific temper among children. But, a right scientific educational aid will help in understanding the nuances of science around them.”
