Earth building camp
In this five-day camp, kids get to architect and explore earthen construction and alternative methods of construction. While kids get their hands on building this, they'll onboard a parallel journey of understanding fundamental sciences involved in it.
Why learn this course?
Earth building camp is an exciting educational program where children learn how to build furniture using earth. Come, get your hands dirty and indulge yourself in a week of design and hands-on construction experience at the farm!!
Architecture and its environmental impact: The construction industry is one of the world’s greatest contributors to the greenhouse gases and in some countries, forms 50% of the total carbon dioxide emissions. The recent economic growth had led to a construction boom and thereby the emission load of CO2. The need for eco-friendly buildings and the use of natural materials is crucial now more than ever.
The rise of Consumerism: We are becoming a highly resource and labour dependent society. From building houses to furniture, we buy them all. This has hampered the learning process of our society. The scope of problem-solving and the process of exploration has been slowed down.
Building or making things is an attitude. The ability to see a table, chair or a small pencil box and then identifying the process of building is a fundamental nature of a builder. Through the Earth building program, kids learn to observe the things around them and understand how they are made and how to build it with minimal impact on the environment.
Why should you choose this camp? How do we drive the curriculum? What would your kid learn from this camp?
Day 1 - Can we build houses without bricks and cement?
Introduction to natural building, earth building methods - Cob, bricks, wattle & daub, hands-on exploration.
Day 4 & Day 5 - Working on Project
Based on clients requirement, kids may build earthen furniture, shelves or earthen oven
The team of Youngsters of Mango education interacting with kids, with the aim of making them to learn out of curiosity and fun makes the whole process of learning a real enjoyment
Day 2 - Thinking design
Understanding Design thinking process. Kids try to design their own wallet
Day 3 - Ideation
Project brief discussion, Questionnaire preparation & interaction with Client , Design - ideation & finalization
loved logic,math, computer programming. I loved systems & logic approaches. And I also figured architecture is this perfect combination
