The Team had a wonderful evening filled with strategy games and puzzles at isaimbalam school. The 5th graders had a sleep over which ended with a English movies (cartoon). The evening started with a bonfire, then came the puzzles and games.
The children learned to play Abalone and Othello. (Favorite hits in STEMLAND 🙂 )
Naveen had brought the materials to build Aravind Gupta’s Toys from waste materials. The children enjoyed constructing them and saw how they functioned.
All of us went to a workshop/learning space to Nainital. The workshop was called ‘Sourcing Our Oneness’. All large number of people from Auroville, Sri Aurobindo Society and from The Ashram attended it.
Personally I enjoyed the time there. I got to know new people, their lifestyle and their work. It was a nice experience. I learnt and got to know more about The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. I enjoyed the Treks also.
We also did a couple of sessions. The first day we did The Stand and Fear(more like a game) with all the participants. We felt that it would be a good session to start off and know each other. Sundar did The Stand and Vaidegi did the fear. They both did a wonderful job. We didn’t have table facilitators and people were asked to pair up with someone they didn’t know. They processed by themselves and then everyone shared their Stand and Fear with all.
I felt a sense of growth in myself when we opened up the space for people to explore themselves.
We also did a 45 min presentation on Stemland. We played a video in the background and Sanjeev was explaining the proceedings. It was more like an interactive space with the audience.
