Jaipur's school organizes two-day educational fair
A two-day educational fair "shekshik mela" was organized last week by Adarsh Balika Vidya Mandir in Jaipur was an attempt to give an insight into learning processes both for children and parents. Both the organizers and parents felt that application of the learned concepts and their demonstration by children makes learning a joyful activity.

The mela featuring different stalls for each of the school subject with colourful kits, artifacts, hands-on activities, puzzles, games and working models educated and entertained the visitors. "The mela gave children an opportunity to build confidence and provided room to think differently," said the head teacher of the school.

"With this fair we wanted to prove that children's learning of school subjects can provide space for socialization, life-skills, creativity and imagination," she added.

In the fair, the students and parents participated in activities relevant to the curriculum of math, science, languages and arts and crafts to promote learning through fun-based activities. Each school subject was allowed five to ten activities to teach visitors concepts from the curriculum.

This is my opinion that student organized and managed learning fairs not only help schools in creating hands-on teaching-learning material but also provide an opportunity to students to demonstrate their learning in front of the visitors.

"Such purely academic fairs not only unleash the creativity of students but also develop their confidence to articulate their learning of various subjects," said the coordinator of the fair. 

While creating learning material for the fair in the workshop mode, students learn a number of skills and prepare themselves purposefully for various tasks and responsibilities.
