Session 1

The Morning session of Day 3 started with insights that the Participants learned in the previous day, which was followed by the tool of “Deep listening”. Participants shared our insights and also they noticed the background conversation while learning deep listening. After Naveen took the tool “4 Profiles”. In those profiles, they learned wisdom profile, social profile, professional profile, and personal profile.

 

Insights from participants:

  • I learn four profiles, especially social profile is more attached and make me think myself deeply.
  • Not to judge anyone by the physical appearance.

  •  learn to focus my wisdom profiles on top priority in my life.

  • Which is right to me I will do that.

  • How will treat with others in public?

Session 2

Later a session was taken by Saranya. First, I asked the projects Who did the task in the previous day, I collected his/her participant’s projects and presented them in the screen. After she taught the methods to do Practical geometry (concentric circle) and laterally Abilash presented the Set Theory using scratch, and gave some tasks that were given to the participants. Participants were excited to do the task. And keep on asking the doubts to Saranya. She cleared the doubts during lunchtime itself.

After returning the Lunch, a short video on” How to make stress your friend” was shown. The summary of the video was,

“Kelly has been treating stress as a disease that makes people sick but has now changed her tune. A study assessed people’s feelings of stress, their attitude towards stress, and correlated against public death records. The people most likely to die were more stressed, but they also believed that stress was harmful to their health. People who were highly stressed but didn’t believe it was harmful were the least likely group to die. The study shows it isn’t stressed that kills people, it’s the belief that stress is harmful. By reshaping how you think about stress, you can retool your body’s response.

When stressed, your heart beats faster, you breathe faster, and you’ll break out into a sweat. Normally we’d view these as signs that you’re not coping well, but people could also be taught that your body is preparing for action. By pumping more blood and breathing more you are preparing for something difficult, and ready to take on any challenge.

The harmful part of stress is a restriction of blood vessels, which is associated with cardiovascular disease. When people learn to see stress as a positive, the blood vessels do not constrict. The body response looks more like it is full of joy.

The next time you are stressed, think about it as your body preparing you for the challenge.

Stress makes you social. Oxytocin is a neural hormone that primes you to strengthen relationships, and help your friends. It is also known as ‘the cuddle hormone’. But Oxytocin is also released as a stress response – to make you want to tell someone you are struggling. Oxytocin is also received in the heart, to strengthen, heal and protect it from the effects of stress. As you release more of this hormone by being stressed or helping others, you increase your stress resilience.

Another study looked at how stressed people were, how much time they had spent helping family/friends/ their community, and correlated with public death records. For general respondents, a major stressful crisis increased the risk of dying by 30%. However, people who spent time caring for others had no increase in the risk of death due to stress.

The results of stress are changed by your mindset. When you think of stress as a benefit it acts that way. When you help others, you build resilience to stress.

When given a choice between a stressful job and one that is less stressful, Kelly recommends that you follow the one that gives you the most meaning, and trust yourself to handle the stress that results.”

Session 3

Fraction

Factorization

Speed Distance and Time

The next session on Scratch was handled by Sandhiya, who introduced the Mathematical concepts like Arithmetical operations, Fractions, and  Factorization. Abilash continued the next session and presented the Speed, Distance and Time using lists in scratch. The day was closed with a 3_Albert-Einstein-quotes-Genius1 Quotation.
