Eager young hands and curious minds came together to watch and reassemble robots on Saturday as Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum (VITM) in association with Edutech India held a demonstration for students of classes 8 to 10. The event was organised as part of International Museum Day celebrations.

The programme is a precursor to the forthcoming Ideal Lab planned to cater to students with a keen interest in emerging trends in science and technology.

Museum director K.G. Kumar said: “This new facility being built at the museum will provide children the opportunity to experience and work with their hands on new ideas in the emerging fields of science to experience the joy of research and building projects.”

The museum also runs a six-day creative ability course in mathematics, physics, chemistry, astronomy and electronics. As part of the course, students participate in live projects and experiments.

The museum is also organising an engineering fair for ITI and polytechnic students from May 23 to 25, which will showcase engineering models made by students. A seminar on water management and an engineering quiz has been planned for May 25.
