The Chevron Enjoy Science Project and the National Science Museum (NSM) under the Ministry of Science and Technology have partnered to develop Maker Spaces that promote lifelong learning and the application of integrated STEM concepts. Maker Spaces enable students to perform fun, informal activities that grow their understanding of STEM and the essential skills of 21st century work. Make Spaces are places where children explore their imaginations, which sparks their inspiration about the possibilities of STEM and innovative thinking. The hand-on activities allow participants to learn by doing.
The Enjoy Maker Space receives support from the New York Hall of Science, a museum specializing in designing scientific learning activities that drive the development of an innovative culture of makers. The New York Hall of Science provides expertise on activity design and trains NSM staff on how to effectively mentor students through maker activities. Visitors can experience the Enjoy Maker Space, located at NSM Science Square in Chamchuri Square, every Monday through Friday from 10.00 – 18.00 or on Saturday and Sunday from 10.30 – 18.30. Visiting the Enjoy Maker Space is free of charge.
In addition, the Enjoy Maker Space is showcased as part of the National Science Museum’s Science Caravan to offer children across the country the opportunity to explore and create.
