With the heat wave refusing to settle down, it is indeed a major disappointment for school kids to spend their valuable vacation in fun and frolic. They are resorting to precarious means of entertainment such as computer and video games. Sensing the gravity of the issue, Harsha Toyota, renowned motor dealers in the city, organised a summer camp in association with Indian Skill Development Foundation.

Titled as Junior Innovators, the four day summer camp was aimed at sowing the seeds of creative thinking and ideating among children and also to ensure that the children had a productive yet fun vacation. Held from May 20 to May 24, the camp saw a substantial participation of 60 students, aged between 5 and 13 years.

The children had an opportunity to explore their interest in various concepts such as Creative Arts, Science, Math-e-Magic and Fireless Cooking. Apart from imbibing creative and academic knowledge, the organisers from Harsh Toyota also provided adequate awareness on Social awareness and holistic development of the society.

The camp concluded with a grand celebration, where the participated students had an opportunity to show case their activities to their parents and other attendees. LB Nagar MLA R Krishnaiah, who was invited as the Chief Guest of the concluding ceremony said that the extra-curricular activities help children explore themselves.

“Parents should encourage children to participate in innovative learning in their free time,” he suggested, further adding, “children, on other hand, should try to learn as many skills as possible at a young age keep themselves and prepare themselves to face the competitive world.” He distributed prizes to children who won prizes in different competitions.
