Reflection: Any One Count How Many Are They’re in an APPLE. But Can we Count How Many Apples Are There in One Seed?

The essence of ‘Education’ is to ‘build character’. Our children are born with that great potential of greatness!  In the words, apply the ancient teaching and learning pedagogy of Vedanta, and as explained by International Youth Leader Swami Vivekananda, “Education is the manifestation of the power already in the human child. Discovering that secret power from within the child ~ is schooling, is parenting. Today, our parents are searching for an answer how to bring out the best in their child. All parents would love to have very talented and gifted children. Today, they could choose to have ‘gifted children’ says British Psychologist Tony Buzan, American Neuro – physicist Dr. Glen Doman, Dr. Neil Harvey. They go on to say,

Being gifted is primarily depended on to the environment. And by that definition, that understanding the intelligence, the giftedness could easily be and with surety and certainty, be nurtured into every child

At Victorious Kidss Educares, this understanding and awareness, is in the air for every teacher, every child. We know that ~ ‘every child can, every child will’! Through varieties of standards, practices and learning outcome mapping, the message is being realised by every child. And that is, “You can”. You can what ~ ‘Do Everything”.

We invite, therefore, with careful planning ~ personalities of eminence ~ form all important future walks of life, from Industries of current foundations of prominence to lend valuable discoveries from their experiences and share our students. We called three (3) times Emmy award winner Mick Kaczorowski and Storyteller Craig Jenkins in the past. Recently we invited Robotics Expert Dr Sujit Bhattacharya, an NRI with a double PhD from UK. On 28th of January, Dr. Sujit Bhattacharya, the co-founder of the CERC (Cambourne Electronics and Robotics Club) along with his wife Cllr. Dr. Shrobona Bhattacharya had visited the VKE Campus. He is a PhD in Electronics Engineering from the University of Edinburgh. Previously, he worked as a Radar Systems Design Authority. He worked as a Senior Scientist/ Engineer at Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for more than 16 years and as a Project Manager for the design of satellite sub-systems for ISRO’s RISAT-II satellite. He designed sub-systems for the Magnetometer payload of European Space Agency’s (ESA) Solar Orbiter satellite.

In his interaction with robotics and space enthusiasts of MYP 3, 4 and 5 (VIII, IX & X grades), he explained his body of work and explained his journey as a scientist. He also gave an insight into the mind of a designer and a space engineer. He also shed light on how a satellite in made and how various departments contribute to making a satellite. Students were very curious about the Solar Orbiter Satellite he had made and asked him what goes in making a satellite that goes that closer to the sun. His explanation opened new perspectives and encouraged students to apply their concepts of physics in various contexts with a vacuum in space.

He gave a demonstration for BBC Micro Bit, a multi-dimensional electronics chip that allows students to program and create robots and other programming-based products. Students already having advanced knowledge of Raspberry Pi and Arduino were quick to grasp and understand the perspective and make connections. He also gave a few demonstrations that explored the structure and function of Micro Bit.
He also interacted with students discussing the importance of detail and precision in a technical field. He encouraged the conceptual education and pedagogy in which the students were learning at VKE. He requested students to share their technical and robotics innovations on social platforms so that their geniuses can be viewed by a larger audience.
